We are at the 21th Generative Art conferences and I like to thank all the participants of the last editions, participants from many different countries of all continents because they have succeeded in supporting GA as 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 the 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 for three days with only one plenary session. The reason is that this unique session gives to all participants the possibility of best knowing one each other and to discuss alltogether.
This year we will meet in Verona, The city of Juliet and Romeo, hosted by the Museum of Natural History, in the Pompei palace, XVI century, with one of the more interesting collections of ancient natural materials dated starting since XVI century. The conference will run the 18th, 19th and 20th of December 2018. The location focus one of the basic references of Generative Art, the structure of species, multiplicity and evolution. We will set up our exhibition in one of the more wonderful space of the museum, focusing in the same time Art and Science.
We will wait for Your proposals (papers, posters, artworks/installations, live performances) until 15th of September 2018 and we are sure that with your contributions GA2018 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 a process. Moving the creativity from Objects/Events 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.
Generative Art 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 possibly generated object, the complexity of the 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 performs the relation between intelligent industrial production and advanced design ideas of a new naturality.
In Visual Art, Literature and Music GA opens a new era of reproducibility of artworks. From cloning to the unique and unrepeatable sequence of possible final results.
The generative approach represents the way to carry out the idea as a product, and not only the artefact-product-piece 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 on the evening of the same days of the conference. This will be an opportunity to show and enjoy the most advanced mix of generative entertainment media.
