CIT&DS Creativity in intelligent technologies & data science

September 15-17, 2015,

Volgograd, Russia


 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 25 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

–   Knowledge discovery in patent and open sources for creative tasks

–    Intelligent Decision Support System for Continual improvement process

–   Design creativity in CAD/CAM/CAE/PDM

–    Conceptual, cognitive and qualitative modeling with application in intelligent decision making

–   E-inclusion: development of smart mobile applications for people with disabilities

–    Natural language and image processing& analysis

–   Data science in Energy Management &Transportation

–   Intelligent technologies in urban development

–    Game-based learning technologies in engineering education and educational games design

–   Personalized Learning in Web-Based Intelligent Educational Systems


Contributions are solicited for the following categories:

–         full research papers describing research accomplishments (approximately 5000 words, 10 -15 pages in Springer LNCS/CCIS one-column page format),

–         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. 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.

 Research papers should be original contributions and should not be accepted or submitted elsewhere until the decisions of the CIT&DS 2015 program committee are announced. At least one author from every submission accepted to be published is obliged to register and attend the conference.
