Computational Aesthetics was held the Hotel Riviera in Lisbon, Portugal. It was the fourth event on this topic following a Workshop in 2005 in Girona, Spain, a Dagstuhl seminar in Germany in 2006, and a Symposium in 2007 in Banff, Canada. Accepted papers will be fully refereed and will be published by the Eurographics Association in their workshop proceeding series.
Arts Program Keynote Speaker: Ernest Edmonds, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia
Title of keynote address: The Art of Programming or Programming as Art
Biography: Ernest Edmonds was born in London and now lives and works in Sydney Australia. His art is in the constructivist tradition and he first used computers in his art practice in 1968. He first showed an interactive work with Stroud Cornock in 1970 at the CG70 exhibition in the UK. Ernest Edmonds first exhibited a generative time-based computer work in London in 1985. He has exhibited throughout the world, from Moscow to LA. His current work is developing from a concern with interaction to an exploration of generative art systems that evolve over long periods of time as they are influenced by the world around them. He also collaborates with Mark Fell on interactive audio/visual works and performances. Most recently they performed at ColorField Remix, Washington DC.
Ernest Edmonds has been an invited presenter in, for example, the UK, France, the USA, Australia, Japan, Taiwan and Malaysia. He has more than 200 publications in the fields of art, creativity and human-computer interaction. In 2005 Artists Bookworks (UK) published his book »On New Constructs in Art.« Since the 1970s he has pioneered the development of practice-based research in art, systems and digital technology. Ernest Edmonds has been a University Head of Department and a Dean. He is currently Professor of Computation and Creative Media at the University of Technology Sydney and Visiting Professor at a number of other Universities including Sussex University, UK.
Technical Program Keynote Speaker: Pat Hanrahan, Stanford University, USA
Title of keynote address: The Semiology of Graphics – Take 2
Biography: Pat Hanrahan is the CANON Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at Stanford University where he teaches computer graphics. His current research involves visualization, image synthesis, virtual worlds, and graphics systems and architectures. Before joining Stanford he was a faculty member at Princeton. He has also worked at Pixar where he volume rendering software and was the chief architect of the RenderMan(TM) Interface – a protocol that allows modeling programs to describe scenes to high quality rendering programs. Previous to Pixar he directed the 3D computer graphics group in the Computer Graphics Laboratory at New York Institute of Technology. Professor Hanrahan has received three university teaching awards. He has received two Academy Awards for Science and Technology, the Spirit of America Creativity Award, the SIGGRAPH Computer Graphics Achievement Award, the SIGGRAPH Stephen A. Coons Award and the IEEE Visualization Career Award. He was recently elected to the National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
