Call for Papers - C5-09
The Seventh International Conference on Creating, Connecting and  
Collaborating through Computing (C5 2009)
January 19-22, 2009
Kyoto, Japan


Computers, networks, and other forms of technology are now pervasive  
in our information-based society. However, most users still function  
as passive consumers of technology. To evolve into a true knowledge  
society, it is critical that we transform computer-based human  
activities to engage users in the active process of creating,  
connecting, and collaborating together.

The C5 conference is for researchers, technology developers,  
educators, and technology users who are concerned about developing  
and enabling human-oriented creation, connection, and collaboration  
processes. C5 is an international forum for presenting ongoing work  
as well as new work currently under development and for discussing  
future needs and directions in creative computing and multimedia  
authoring environments. We welcome equally the submission of  
technical papers and practitioner/experience reports for paper  
presentations. In addition, we have added workshops to the conference  
and are now soliciting proposals fro interactive workshops.

Hosted in Japan, this conference builds on the successes and high  
standards held by previous C5 conferences: 2003-2005, 2007 in Kyoto  
(Japan), 2006 in Berkeley (USA), 2008 in Poitiers (France).
