**Workshop Description and Relevant Research Areas**
Problem solving and collaboration are clearly creative processes, so it
very reasonable to formalise and to apply cognitive theories about
agent systems to improve problem solving and collaboration capabilities. The
goal of this workshop is to provide a venue for contributions that take this
creative perspective, and that improve the capabilities of single- and
agent systems by using creative methods.
We envision approaches that are driven by cognitive theories about
improve agent reasoning, problem solving and collaborative behaviour. We
envision approaches that focus on producing arts, and on proving and
correctness of cognitive theories about creativity by simulating them in an
artificial single- or multi-agent environment. We hope that contributions in
this field shed light on the following questions: “What is the role of
creativity in problem solving and collaboration, and also “What is the
problem solving and collaboration in creativity?" We invite researchers to
submit fresh or preliminary ideas about all aspects of creativity in agent
systems. We welcome contributions with a neuronal connectionist
well as those that focus more on logical symbolicist theories. We especially
encourage also hybrid approaches, with the aim to foster an
discussion and cross-fertilisation between the two communities.
Workshop topics include, but are not limited to:
* Computational creativity for problem solving, including action planning,
cognitive robotic programming and BDI systems.
* Social aspects of creativity, including creativity in agent
* Creativity in learning agents, including the role of creativity for
reinforcement learning, inductive learning, and classification.
* The relation between embodiment and creativity.
* Cognitive agent frameworks.
* Conceptual blending and concept invention.
* Creative robots.
* Assessment and evaluation of creativity, including contributions that
address the question about when an agent is creative.
* Improvisation and spontaneous failure recovery via creative acting.
* Emotionality and serendipity in agent systems.
* Relation between self-awareness and creativity in agent systems.
* Creativity in the context of belief, desire and intention.
* Creative agents in the web and in the cloud.
* Agent-based systems that address creativity in music, poetry, visual
design, dance, programming and mathematics.
* The role of creativity for self-organisation.
* Creative argumentation.
**Workshop Format and Publication Details**
The workshop is designed as a full day workshop with invited talks by
speakers and presentations of peer-reviewed papers and demonstrations.
three kinds of contributions:
1. Full research papers (max. 8 pages), where we expect original and novel
contributions in the field.
2. Position papers (max. 4 pages), which are are intended to shape the
of young research projects, and to discuss preliminary results with the
3. Demonstrations (accompanied by an extended abstract of approximately 1-2
pages). Demonstrations can use any kind of multimedia, e.g., video,
both. Live systems, software demos and and robotic applications are also
Submissions should be formatted in the same ACM proceedings style that
at the AAMAS conference, as described here:

file via easychair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=creas2016.
**Visionary Paper and Best Paper Award**
Two workshop papers will be selected for publication in two Springer
The most visionary paper will appear under Springer’s Lecture Notes in
Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) – Hot Topics series 2) The best workshop
will be published under Springer’s Communications in Computer and
Science (CCIS) series Should a position paper or a system demo be awarded,
authors will be asked to submit an extended full paper version of their
