AI has been used in recent years to generate creative artefacts or behaviours in domains such as music, visual arts, storytelling, literature and poetry, games, architecture, design, autonomously or in collaboration with humans. There is also a growing interest in developing AI techniques to play roles in creative processes beyond generation, including analysis, evaluation and curation, as well as in creative solving of complex problems and in supporting co-creation environments.

The IJCAI 2024 AI, Arts & Creativity special track aims to explore the relationships between AI and the arts, creativity and creative practice. We welcome original technical submissions addressing, e.g., the following questions (non-exhaustive list):

●      AI systems that autonomously produce artistic outputs

●      Design of AI systems that support, challenge and provoke human creativity through collaboration and co-creation

●      Techniques aiming at combining fast inference and problem solving for creative tasks, in the spirit of Kahneman’s System I and System II.

●      Ethical issues raised by creative AI systems, including appropriation, authorship, integrity and bias

●      The application of AI to creative problem-solving, ideation and generation of creative behaviour in robotics, software systems, and other non-artistic domains

●      Computational paradigms, architectures and algorithms to model, simulate or implement creativity and creative processes

●      Methodologies for the evaluation or curation of artefacts created with AI systems

●      The cultural and social impacts of AI on creativity, creative practice, education and society

●     Evaluation of the role and application of AI to better understand human creative processes

●      Computational implementations inspired by fields such as psychology or cognitive science

Submission of Research Papers

Research papers are submitted with the same format and general instructions as for the main conference ( except that there will be no summary reject phase and no rebuttal, and we do not require extra files to be uploaded for previously rejected papers. Research paper submissions must meet all the Submission Requirements described in the above general instructions. In particular, they must be anonymous, and papers are expected to satisfy the highest scientific standards as submissions to the main track of IJCAI 2024. Also, double submissions to the special track and main conference are not allowed.

Submit your research paper here:

Accepted research papers will be included in the IJCAI 2024 proceedings.

Submission of Demos

As in 2023,  the authors will not be able to submit demos to the AI, Arts & Creativity track. However, they are invited to submit demos that are relevant to this special track’s topic to the IJCAI 2024 Demo track, indicating the “AI, Arts & Creativity” nature of the demo within the submission procedure.

Important Dates 

●       Submission deadline (full papers, no separate abstract submission): February 8, 2024

●      Notification: April 16, 2024

Note: There is no specific abstract deadline. All deadlines are anywhere on earth.
