The workshop will pave the way for a new interdisciplinary research direction: Creativity Science. It gathers the world-leading researchers in computational creativity specialising in a number of application areas, such as visual art, language, mathematics, and music. Methodologically, creativity will be modelled using computational frameworks based on cognitively inspired and psychologically informed theories such as, for example, analogy and conceptual blending.
Looking forward to the 1st Conference on Computer Simulation of Musical Creativity at the University of Huddersfield (UK) from June 17-19th, 2016, and excited to be an invited panellist for a rousing discussion on the Evaluation of Creative Music Systems!

I'm very much looking forward to the Workshop on metaphor generation, conceptual spaces, and more at the Jožef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana, Slovenia!
In this paper, we investigate the relationship between lexical spaces and contextually-defined conceptual spaces, offering applications to creative concept discovery. We define a computational method for discovering members of concepts based on semantic spaces: starting with a standard distributional model derived from corpus co-occurrence statistics, we dynamically select characteristic dimensions associated with seed terms, and thus a subspace of terms defining the related concept.
Last week I presented a talk entitled "A Computational Approach to Modelling the Perception of Pitch and Tonality in Music" at the 37th Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society took place in Pasadena, California, 23-25 July 2015. The theme was Mind, Technology, and Society. A copy of the conference proceedings paper may be found here: https://mindmodeling.org/cogsci2015/
