Trends in the area of computer graphics and interactive techniques aspire tools that support content creation and manipulation. Contributions to computer graphics such as 2D or 3D modeling, animation, rendering and imaging along with the emerging interactive techniques open up a broad space for developing specialized platforms that promote creativity,
design, discovery, innovation, and composition. The SIGGRAPH Asia Workshop on Designing Tools for Crafting Interactive Artifacts aims at aspiring ideas on creativity support tools for multisensory or interactive content creation, including design, evaluation and theoretical implications. The workshop also provides a platform for discussions on the challenges and the subsequent research opportunities in developing such tools.

We invite submissions evolving around three main themes. Topics for each
theme include but are not limited to:

1)Design Implications for creativity support tools

– Design guidelines for domain specific creativity support tools

– Interaction techniques with creativity support tools

– Design challenges Target user groups

– User interface design addresses needs of amateurs and/or experts

– Goal and task-specific design constraints

– Supporting collaboration on creativity support platforms

– Challenges facing tool designers

2)Implications to evaluation and research methods

– End-user experiences

– Measures and criteria for evaluating creativity

3)Theoretical implications to creativity support tools
