-- Handbook of Research on Computational Arts and Creative Informatics --

A book edited by James Braman, Towson University, Towson, MD, USA
Giovanni Vincenti, Gruppo Vincenti, S.r.l., Rome, Italy

Interested individuals are invited to submit a 1-2 page abstract on
their proposed chapter by November 15, 2007.


Introduction
At the core of the fundamental questions of "what is art" and "what is
technology" we focus The Handbook of Research on computational Arts and
Creative Informatics at the convergence of computer science and artistic
creativity. We seek to discover new ways to conceptualize art and
investigate new methods of self expression through the use of technology.
Here we are inviting experts in a wide range of disciplines to discuss the
emergence of expression and art through that of science, information
technology, computer science, artificial intelligence and many other
related fields. We see this book as a comprehensive recourse where artists
and scientists can collaborate on ideas, practices and experimentations on
these topics. As technology becomes meshed further into our culture and
everyday lives, new mediums and outlets for creative expression and
innovation are abound. We are emphasizing the creative nature of
technology and science itself. How does the human side of technological
achievement influence our creative abilities as technology is a creation
in itself? Has the ontology of the information age influenced society at
the level of both the human and non human? Through this handbook we are
addressing novel concepts from creation, interaction, communication,
interpretation and emergence of art through various technological means
and mediums.

Coverage
The Handbook of Research on computational Arts and Creative Informatics
will provide a comprehensive range of topics regarding the interaction of
the sciences and the arts. Key concepts, theories and innovations
involving the computational side of the arts and other creative
technologies will be discussed. This particular volume will feature
chapters (8,000-10,000 words) written by experts and leading innovators of
their respective fields.

Recommended topics include, **but are not limited to**, the following:

+Essays and Discussion on Art and Technology
+Art and web design
+Fractals, tessellations and Creativity through mathematical expression
+Interactive and computational sculptures and artworks
+Kinetic sculptures
+Creativity as an emergent property of art and science
+Digital art and creative expressions
+The creative process in IT education
+Art created by Artificial Life and Intelligent Agents
+Creativity in computer interface and web design
+Creativity from emergent properties
+Art expressed or created by multi-agent systems
+Virtual spaces and Art of synthetic/ virtual worlds
+Art and expression through information visualization
+Animation, simulation and modeling
+3-D artwork
+Art for the blind and visually impaired- Universal Creativity
+Human expression through cybernetics
+Robotics and Art
+Future trends in Art as influenced by emerging technologies

Submissions
Interested individuals are invited to submit a 1-2 page manuscript on
their proposed chapter by November 15, 2007. We encourage the inclusion of
related topics not mentioned above that may be related to both the theme
of the handbook and your particular research area or expertise. Upon
acceptance of your proposal, you will have until February 28, 2008 to
submit a completed draft of your chapter. A set of guidelines will also be
sent to you upon acceptance. Each potential author will receive
notification on their acceptance status by November 30, 2007. This book is
tentatively scheduled for publishing by Information Science Reference
(formerly Idea Group Reference), www.info-sci-ref.com, an imprint of IGI
Global (formerly Idea Group, Inc.) in 2009.
