A flavour of Computational Creativity (CC) research will be provided by an introductory tutorial from Geraint Wiggins and Tony Veale. The tutorial is open to all, and though new researchers may find it especially useful, it should contain something for everyone. For the tutorial will explore both sides of the CC coin, from the philosophical questions that we CC researchers frequently debate to the build-first-and-ask-questions-later approach of CC engineers. As a field CC embraces both kinds of approach and encourages researchers to develop both sides of their work. The tutorial opens with an introduction to the key philosophical issues in the field by Geraint Wiggins, and continues with a technical exploration into the anatomy of a creative Twitterbot by Tony Veale. The tutorial is sponsored by the PROSECCO European coordination action on Computational Creativity, and PROSECCO will fund 5 travel scholarships for students to attend the tutorial and the ICCC-2014 conference.
