          The 10th International Conference on Creating, 
      Connecting and Collaborating through Computing (C5 2012)

                     18-20 January 2012
                    Playa Vista, CA USA

	   Hosted by the USC Institute for Creative Technologies

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.
