computational creativity cognition of creativitycognitive neuroscience of designing and creativity
Cognitive studies of designing: protocol studies of designing; role of drawings in designing
Cognitive neuroscience of designing: the behaviour of the brain while designing
Computational models of creative design: evolutionary systems; analogy; emergence; situated agents
Evolutionary systems in design: genetic engineering; style emergence, complex evolution
Ontologies: the development of the Function-Structure-Behaviour ontology and its application to designing,to designed objects and to designing processes
Situated design computing: computation founded on situated cognition concepts that allows the acquisition and re-use of experience
Visual representation and reasoning: emergence in design; shape representation; qualitative representations
