7-11 November 2011 Porvoo, Finland

The University of Helsinki (together with Hecse and HIIT) will organize an international autumn school on computational creativity. We cordially invite PhD and MSc students and researchers who are interested in being introduced to various aspects of computational creativity by experts in the field. Previous experience of the field is not needed. We target audience that has background in computing, but we also welcome participants from other related disciplines.

The goal of computational creativity is to model, simulate or enhance creativity using computers. Different subfields of computational creativity include linguistic, musical and visual creativity, producing creative artifacts such as jokes, paintings, or musical pieces.

The autumn school covers computational creativity from different angles, first providing a general introduction and then focusing on more specific topics, including:
* Introduction to Computational Creativity
* Formal Definition of Creativity
* Computational Modeling of Music Cognition
* Musical Creativity
* Automated Discovery and Mathematics
* Automated Painting
* Artistic Use of Swarm Computing
* Computational Humor
* Creative Information Retrieval
* Computational Treatment of Affective and Persuasive Language

We are proud to announce that leading researchers in the field will lecture in the autumn school:
* Simon Colton, Imperial College, UK
* Graeme Ritchie, University of Aberdeen, UK
* Carlo Strapparava, Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Italy
* Paulo Urbano, University of Lisbon, Portugal
* Tony Veale, University College Dublin, Ireland
* Geraint A. Wiggins, Goldsmiths’ College, University of London, UK

The autumn school is funded by Hecse, a Finnish doctoral programme in computer science. Since Hecse will cover the costs of the autumn school programme and organization, registration to the school is free of charge.

Participants only pay for their accommodation and meals (and possibly for social programme). (For members of Hecse, all expenses will be covered by Hecse.) The autumn school will take place on 7-11 November in Porvoo, Finland, 50 km east of Helsinki.

Important dates:
* Registration deadline: 26 Oct 2011
* Registration deadline for Hecse members: 5 Oct 2011
* Hotel reservations: a block of rooms is available in Hotel Sparre for reservations made by 7 Oct 2011 (mention “University of Helsinki” when booking)
