2017 IEEE International Conference on Information, Communication and Engineering (IEEE ICICE 2017) will be held in Xiamen, Fujian, P.R. China on November 17–20, 2017, and will provide a unified communication platform for researchers in a wide area of topics. The special issue on "Selected papers from IEEE ICICE 2017" invites papers investigating how interactive computing systems and socio-technical processes affect creativity. We cherish creativity as a wonderful aspect of human experience. Creativity is the partner of inspiration, of moments when we seem to go beyond ourselves to reach new heights; it is the font of innovation. We look forward to presentations of work that include forms of validation, including data about people, showing how computing environments impact Design Creativity and cognition. The data can take many forms, including qualitative, quantitative, and sensory. Special issue on "Selected papers from IEEE ICICE 2017" will present papers addressing: (1) creativity support environments (Virtual vs. Physical; Online vs. Offline), (2) studies of technology, people, and creativity, and cognition (3) creative works that utilize computing to engage, stimulate, and provoke human experience.
We see research on the impact of computing on creativity not as a fledgling field, in which methodologies are unknown and uncertain, but rather as having reached a relatively mature state, in which various diverse methodologies have been developed and applied. Methodologies and theories, while perpetually under development, are already quite viable. Authors will be asked to focus on the significance of the submission's contribution, originality and validity, the quality of the presentation, and the benefit others can gain from its results. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
 Mathematical and Scientific Methods on Design
 Educational Aspects on Design
 Evaluation and Assessment of Design
 Design Strategies
 Sustainable Design
 Human Factors, Design and Usability
 Human Computer Interactions
 Design on Internet Technology and Application
 Information Visualization of Design
 Innovations on Design and Technologies
 Affective Design (Engineering)
 Psychology and Cognition on Design Creativities
 Robotics and Automation
 AI in Design and Innovation
