Creativity is present in all we do. The 7th Creativity and
Cognition Conference (CC09) embraces the broad theme of Everyday Creativity. This year the conference will be held at the
Berkeley Art Museum (CA, USA), and asks: How do we enable
everyone to enjoy their creative potential? How do our creative
activities differ? What do they have in common? What languages
can we use to talk to each other? How do shared languages
support collective action? How can we incubate innovation? How
do we enrich the creative experience? What encourages
participation in everyday creativity?

The Creativity and Cognition Conference series started in 1993
and is sponsored by ACM SIGCHI. The conference provides a forum
for lively interdisciplinary debate exploring methods and tools
to support creativity at the intersection of art and technology.
We welcome submissions from academics and practitioners, makers
and scientists, artists and theoreticians. This year’s
broad theme of Everyday Creativity reflects the new forms of
creativity emerging in everyday life, and includes topics of:

- Collective creativity and creative communities
- Shared languages and Participatory creativity
- Incubating creativity and supporting Innovation
- DIY and folk creativity
- Democratising creativity
- New materials for creativity
- Enriching the collaborative experience

We welcome the following forms of submission:
- Empirical evaluations by quantitative and qualitative methods
- In-depth case studies and ethnographic analyses
- Reflective and theoretical accounts of individual and
collaborative practice
- Principles of interaction design and requirements for
creativity support tools
- Educational and training methods
- Interdisciplinary methods, and models of creativity and
- Analyses of the role of technology in supporting everyday

The UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive is the
visual arts centre of the University of California, Berkeley,
and one of the largest university art museums in the United
States. The museum is steeped in a history of radical
interdisciplinary creativity and provides the ideal environment
for researchers, practitioners and artists to come together to
examine and reflect on the role of technology in Everyday

All submissions will be peer reviewed. Printed proceedings,
published by ACM Press, will be available at the conference and
will be included in the ACM digital library.
We aim to produce special issue(s) of international journals (to
be confirmed) from the Creativity & Cognition conference.
