Gary Greenfield: On the Origins of the Term "Computational Aesthetics". In: László Neumann, Mateu Sbert, Bruce Gooch, Werner Purgathofer (Eds.): Eurographics Workshop on Computational Aesthetics. 2005. 9-12




To provide some background, as well as a historical context, for the Eurographics 2005 Workshop on Graphics, Visualization and Imaging we provide a chronology, complete with references, covering various research activities that invoke the term 'aesthetics" in a computational setting. Much of the research cited focuses on the problem of making numerical assessments of the aesthetic content of works of art.
