**Scope [#o0e146a3]

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 are adding a workshop track for the third day of the conference and are soliciting proposals for interactive workshops.

For the first time hosted in Europe, this conference builds on the successes and high standards held by previous C5 conferences : 2003-2005, 2007 in Kyoto (Japan), 2006 in Berkeley (USA).
