Computers, networks, and other forms of technology are pervasive in our information-based society. Unfortunately, most users of this technology use it for passive consumption of information and entertainment. 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 anyone interested in the use of computers as tools to develop and enable user-oriented creation, connection, and collaboration processes. Researchers, developers, educators and users come together at C5 to present new and ongoing work and to discuss future directions for creative computing and multimedia environments. We welcome the submission of theoretical and technical papers, practitioner/experience reports, and papers that bridge the gap between theory and practice or that encourage inter- and cross-disciplinary study.
