Main Conference Information

Aim and Scope

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:

  • Computational creativity for science and design
  • Software computer-aided design
  • Conceptual, cognitive and qualitative modelling with application in intelligent decision making
  • Intelligent Decision Support System for Continual improvement process
  • Game-based learning technologies in engineering education and educational games design
  • Natural language and image processing& analysis
  • Knowledge discovery in patent and open sources for creative tasks
  • Intelligent technologies in urban development
  • Design creativity in CAD/CAM/CAE/PDM
  • E-inclusion: development of smart mobile applications for people with disabilities

  • demonstrations and short communications, i.e. experience reports, project overviews, etc. which do not fully adhere to the standards of a first rate scientific publication, but are nevertheless of interest and value for the participants of the conference,
  • proposals for tutorials and panels.

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.
