Researchers from ATLAS Institute’s ACME Lab will present one pictorial and two Graduate Student Symposium papers at the 14th ACM Creativity & Cognition (C&C), which will take place June 20-23 in Venice, Italy. The theme of this year's conference is "Creativity, Craft and Design." 

Professor Ellen Yi-Luen Do, director of the ACME Lab, who is serving on the steering committee for the C&C conference series, is also the co-chair for the conference’s Graduate Student Symposium and co-chair for publicity. Besides being a co-author of the Tinycade paper, Do will also chair Session 7 on Sound and Music. Do also received a NSF grant (Award Abstract # 2225941) to support bringing graduate students to the conference.

Held every other year in an international location since 1993, C&C serves as a gathering place for a diverse community of researchers, designers, engineers and artists who provide a cross-disciplinary perspective on creativity and cognition as well as technological innovation. It serves as a premier forum for presenting the world's best new research investigating computing's impact on and ability to promote creativity in all forms of human experience.
