Call for papers – 2nd Computational Creativity & Games Workshop @ ICCC 2016, Paris – deadline 1 May 2016


Computational Creativity and Games (CCGW 2016)

June 27th, 2016 – Paris, France

Submission deadline: May 1st, 2016


Digital games are an ideal application area for the study of computational creativity: they combine many creative domains (visuals, audio, narrative, game and level design, gameplay) and have often relied on algorithms to generate content for the ever-increasing needs of a massive game industry. The 2nd workshop on Computational Creativity and Games focuses on and highlights research in autonomous computational creators of game content.


Papers may cover a variety of topics within computational creativity in digital games, including but not limited to:

Automated game generation (whether specific content types or entire games)
Computational creativity perspectives on commercial or academic generative processes in games
Evaluation of games through creative agents (automated playtesting)
Human-machine creativity in game design tools
Computational creativity at the service of amateur and novice developers (e.g. in modding)
Cultural issues relating to generative software and games or game design
Surveys, ontologies and reports of computationally creative software in games
Vision papers on enhancing the creativity of procedural game content generators


We welcome paper submissions up to 8 pages (including references). Due to a tight review schedule, papers over 8 pages may be rejected without review. The review process will be single-blind, but you are welcome to make your papers anonymous. All papers must be submitted as a PDF document formatted according to ICCC style (which is similar to AAAI and IJCAI formats). Formatting instructions, as well as LaTeX and Word style files are provided in the ICCC Author Kit ( The workshop follows a single-blind review process; papers can be anonymized at the authors’ discretion. Papers should be submitted through EasyChair (submissions will open soon!). Accepted papers must be presented by an author on June 27, 2016 at Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC), Paris, France.
