Dear friends of Generative Art, 
Starting the new decade of Generative Art conferences I like to thank all the participants of the last editions because they has succeeded in making GA the worldwide reference conference in the sector of the generative approach. This with their interesting contributions that were not only academic papers but works in progress able to define the real state of art of the Generative Thinking. 
Not only, the discussions, the exchanges of experience and the working together for reaching advanced possibilities was the unique feeling of these meetings

As the other years the conference will run in three days with only a plenary session. The reason is that this unique session gives to the participants the possibility of best knowing one each other and to discuss all together. 
We will wait for your proposals (papers, posters, artworks/installations, live performances) until September 15th and we are sure that with your contributions GA2009 will be, once more, a moment of great exchange of experiences and an occasion of meeting people working with the same approach in a wide range of different disciplines. 
Generative Art performs the idea as process. Moving the creativity from Objects to Codes, GA builds the contemporary complex natural/artificial environment. Generative Algorithms and Transforming Rules realize, as natural DNA does, always different and unpredictable series of events, artworks, industrial objects, architectures, music, environment, communications, software and hardware devices, all recognizable by each generative creative concept. 
GA is identifiable as one of the most advanced approaches in creative and design world. It performs the incoming new naturality of artificial world. Generative Projects, Morphogenetic Design, Evolutionary Systems can design the species of incoming events, their identity in progress, the recognizability of each possible generated object, the complexity of contemporary world, spaces, communications and music. 
In Architecture GA can increase the identity and uniqueness of each city, performing generative codes that can be used in designing the incoming transforming paths of each town. 
In Industrial design GA will perform the relation between intelligent industrial production and advanced design ideas of a new naturality. 
In Art and Music GA opens a new era of reproducibility of artworks. From clone to unique and un-repeatable sequence of possible final results. 
Generative approach represents the way to carry out the idea as a product, and not only the artefact-product as the unique representation of the idea. 

Generative Art Conference is a meeting place to exchange ideas, theoretical approaches, operative and teaching experiences and to value the innovative field of intelligent industrial production and business that belongs to Generative approach. 
Following the experience of last years, people can show their innovative works in the concurrent GA Performance Festival that will be held in the same days of the conference. This will be an opportunity to show and enjoy the most advanced mix of generative entertainment media.
