Special Session on

Evolutionary Computation for Creative Intelligence

Aim and Scope

Evolutionary computation (EC) techniques, including genetic algorithm, evolution strategies, genetic programming, particle swarm optimization, ant colony optimization, differential evolution, and memetic algorithms, have shown to be effective for search and optimization problems. Recently, EC gained several promising results and becomes an important tool in Computational Creativity, such as in music, visual art, literature, architecture, and industrial design.

The aim of this special session is to reflect the most recent advances of EC for Computational Creativity, with the goal to enhance autonomous creative systems as well as human creativity. This session will allow researchers to share experiences and present their new ways for taking advantage of EC techniques in Creativity. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, EC technologies in the following aspects:

    • Generation of Music, Visual Art, Architecture and Design
    • Algorithmic design in creative intelligence
    • Optimization in creativity
    • Development of hardware and software for creative systems
    • Evaluation methodologies
    • Assistance of human creativity
    • Computational aesthetics
    • Emotion response
    • Human-machine creativity

Paper Submission

Prospective authors are invited to contribute their papers to Special Session on Computational Intelligence in Communications and Networking. All papers are to be submitted electronically through the IEEE WCCI 2012 main website http://www.ieee-wcci2012.org/.
