The EAI Endorsed Transactions on Creative Technologies provide a common forum to publish high quality papers, and to offer readers a single source to get inspiring ideas and important findings in this area. It is our pleasure to present the sixth issue of dedicated Transactions on Creative Technologies.
Given the accelerated changes and deeply interconnected activities of the times we are living in, creativity is a key factor of disruptive future developments. Creative and entertainment industries nowadays represent more than 3% of the GDP in Europe and they range from creative content providers (TV & radio, fashion, music) through creative experience providers (movies and music experience) to creative services providers (advertising, design, architecture).
Creative services, contents and experiences present knowledge requirements that are defined increasingly beyond a single discipline and appear to lie in a sound engagement among the creative practitioner (artist/designer/composer/entertainer), the engineer and the scientist. Digital arts, creative industries, and (tele)communication + (social) signal processing speak the language of convergence rather than autonomy. Their interaction calls for special attention now more than ever.
The sixth issue of the journal is now available for free via EUDL with topics ranging from painting powered by ambient intelligence, emotional filtering of search engine results, wearable haptic game interface, and more.
If your research meets the topics of the journal, do not hesitate to submit it if you would like to see it in one of the future issues.
