International Symposium on Computational Aesthetics
in Graphics, Visualization, and Imaging

5–7 August 2011 in Vancouver, Canada
Co-located with SIGGRAPH 2011

You are invited to participate in CAe 2011, the seventh annual symposium on computational aesthetics, which will take place in Vancouver, Canada on 5–7 August 2011, just before SIGGRAPH 2011.

Computational Aesthetics bridges the analytic and synthetic by integrating aspects of computer science, philosophy, psychology, and the fine, applied & performing arts. It seeks to facilitate both the analysis and the augmentation of creative behaviours. CAe also investigates the creation of tools that can enhance the expressive power of the fine and applied arts and furthers our understanding of aesthetic evaluation, perception and meaning.

The conference brings together individuals with technical experience of developing computer based tools to solve aesthetic problems and people with artistic/design backgrounds who use these new tools.
