Creativity is the process of breaking out of established patterns; it's the reorganization, recombination or reinterpretation of concepts and ideas for getting something unique and previously unknown. Creating software is one of the most creative activities that humans undertake. It is developed for people and by people and people's creativity can be a good source to improvise solutions to problems for dominating complex systems such as software design and development. The main objective of the CIT&DS 2015 is to bring together researchers and practitioners to share ideas in using creativity to theory and practice in software engineering. The official language of the conference will be English.
The conference will consist of regular sessions with technical contributions reviewed and selected by an international program committee from 29 countries, as well as of invited talks and tutorials presented by leading scientists. Topics of interest for the conference include, but not limited to:
Contributions are solicited for the following categories:
The program committee may decide to accept a submission as a short paper (2000 - 3000 words) if it reports interesting results but does not justify publication of a full paper. It is planned to publish the proceedings (pre-proceedings or post-proceedings of selected papers) with Springer in their Communications in Computer and Information Science series (final approval pending).

For their submissions, authors are encouraged to consider the final paper format requirements, as specified at the conference site.
