The Fifth International Conference on
Creating, Connecting and Collaborating through Computing (C5 2007)

January 24-26, 2007, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan

Organized by
 Hewlett-Packard Company
 Kyoto University 21st Century COE Program for Knowledge Society
 Viewpoints Research Institute

 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 half-day
 and full-day interactive workshops.

 Standard Registration Rate (after Jan. 11 and on-site): 12,000 JPY
