Off the Lip 2017

Transdisciplinary Approaches to Cognitive Innovation
A confluence of talks, exhibits, posters, films, workshops and
interactive demonstrations

Plymouth University, Plymouth, UK: 16-18 August 2017

".. if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these
ideas, then each of us will have two ideas, plus a third idea that is
the product of our two original ideas .." -- Adapted from G. B. Shaw

The challenges facing society today demand innovative approaches,
creative solutions and wider resonances that can only be obtained by
drawing on multiple perspectives. In its third edition, Off the Lip
integrates research in the arts, sciences, humanities, and engineering
in a radically transdisciplinary event that also actively engages the
business community and the public at large. We invite you to submit
your work and join us in CogNovo's latest, excitingly diverse ideas
exchange. CogNovo is a multidisciplinary collaborative programme
linking the sciences, arts and humanities, working under the banner of
cognitive innovation. Through the notion of cognitive innovation, we
approach creativity as a bootstrapping cognitive process not
exclusively concerned with conscious human thought and action but with
a broader conceptualisation of adaptive behaviour that is intrinsic to
our engagement with the world.

Off the Lip 2017 welcomes submissions in topics related to cognitive
innovation and creativity. In recognition of the profound changes
facing society today, we especially welcome submissions around the
theme of Cognitive Innovation and Displacement. Topics include, but
are not limited to, the following:


Cognitive innovation in the context of recent world developments

Nudging or manipulating? Cognitive interventions for behavioral change
Speculative and critical design
Reimagining and re-engaging with the commons
Cognitive innovations in assessment, measurement, and observation

Technologies of displacement, displaced technologies

Robot creativity and the second machine age
Competing, collaborating, or co-creating with machines
Make it work: jugaad and practices of hacking
Mobile, ubiquitous, and pervasive computing

Displacement in cognition

Making up your mind: Perceptual and creative processes as
displacements of reality
Serendipities as displaced thoughts
Creativity and cognition in the displaced body
Counterfactual thinking and displacing facts
Creativity as improvisation
Cognitive disruptions and re/placing habit
