Welcome to the C5 2009 conference web site

Conference program is now available at the program page.

Schedule of the "Unconference Sessions" on the 22nd is available here.

The video of the keynote lecture by Dr. Alan Kay is available here.


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).

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Development and applications of collaboration tools and environments
  • User collaboration using 3D, multimedia, and animation objects
  • Technologies for creating educational environments
  • Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) and Technology-Enabled Learning (TEL)
  • Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), distributed work, and virtual teaming
  • Hybrid technology activities, such as scientific experiments, instrumentations, participatory design (PD) or simulations , robots, and game playing
  • Development of applications/content for non-traditional learning and support environments, including mentoring, role-playing, peer-to-peer, "teacherless" environments, low-cost and sustainable technologies (e.g. $100 laptop), and gerontechnology applications, among others.
  • Applications and tools for education from K-12 through higher education, system design by children, digital library and search environment for children

Conference sessions will include invited talks, including one from Dr. Alan Kay (Viewpoints Research Institute), 2003 ACM Turing awards, one from Dr. Allison Druin, Human-Computer Interaction Lab, University of Maryland as well as formal paper presentations, hands-on workshops, informal "un-conference" and "lightning" sessions and social and sightseeing events.
