1. Overview

The International Journal of Creative Computing describes creative computing as follows:

Creative computing refers to a meta-technology to coalesce knowledge in computing and other disciplines. People use computers as aids to creativity and creative-computing topics may reshape the world as we know it. Applications are seen in arts, entertainment/games, mobile applications, multimedia, product/web design and other interactive systems.

Creative computing is interdisciplinary in nature and topics relating to it include applications, development method, evaluation, modeling, philosophy, principles, support environment, and theory.

The term "creative computing" is used both in the United Kingdom and the United States e.g., at Harvard University and MIT.
