About the Workshop

About the workshop

AIC 2020 is the 8th international appointment of the International Workshop Series AIC on "Artificial Intelligence and Cognition". The AIC series started in 2013, stemming from the need of creating an international scientific forum for the discussion and the presentation of the theoretical and applied research developments in the field of cognitively inspired Artificial Intelligence.

In recent years, after a period of partial fragmentation of the research directions between the AI and Cognitive Science community, the area of cognitively inspired artificial systems has attracted a renewed attention both from academia and industry. Thus, the awareness about the need for additional research in this interdisciplinary field is gaining again widespread acceptance.

In this spirit, the AIC 2020 workshop aims at putting together researchers coming from different domains (e.g., artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science, philosophy, social sciences, etc.) working on the interdisciplinary field of cognitively inspired artificial systems. AIC 2020 will take place in Centre for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS) at Örebro University, Sweden, on November 18-20, 2020, joint with SweCog 2020, the 16th conference of the Swedish Cognitive Science Society.

Aims and Scopes

Topics of interest for AIC 2020 include but are not limited to:

  • Knowledge Representation and Cognition (e.g. Neural Networks models, Conceptual Spaces, Ontologies and representation of common sense)
  • Cognitive Architectures (e.g. SOAR, ACT-R) and Cognitive modelling for Artificial Systems
  • B.I.C.A. (Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures) and systems
  • Cognitive Robotics
  • Human Robot Interaction
  • Evaluation of cognitively driven AI systems compared with other AI approaches
  • Cognition and Semantic Web
  • Methodological open questions on AI and Cognition
  • Automated reasoning: deductive, probabilistic, diagnostic, causal and analogical inference
  • Historical and theoretical relation among Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence
  • Knowledge discovery and acquisition
  • Modelling of human learning and knowledge acquisition in complex domains
  • Computational Linguistics, Natural Language Processing & Understanding
  • Logic and Reasoning
  • Evolutionary Computation
  • Spatial Cognition and Computation
  • Cognitively inspired Machine Learning
  • Computational Theories of Learning
  • Computational Creativity
  • Cognitive and the Moving Imag
  • Computational Models of Narrative Understanding (Visuo-Auditory Narrativity, Perception, Cognitive Film Studies)
  • Decision Support Systems

  • SPECIAL-FOCUS: AIC 2020 particularly welcomes the papers focusing on Human-Centered AI .

Paper Submission

All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted according to the information for LNCS Authors. All papers must present original work that is not currently under review. We welcome the following types of contributions:

  • Full research papers (8 to 14 pages)
  • Short research papers (4 to 7 pages)
  • Extended abstracts of recently published journal papers (1 to 2 pages)

Full research paper submissions must describe original and completed work, where mature results and evaluation are included.
Short research paper submissions can present a work in progress/position paper or include a small focused contribution with preliminary results.
Extended Abstract: Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of their recently published journal articles within the field of AI and cognition. The original article should be accepted and published no earlier than 2018.  

Please submit your contributions electronically in PDF format via AIC 2020 Easychair. All the accepted papers will be presented orally in the workshop.

AIC 2020 - Proceedings: Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings published on-line by CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org), with ISSN and submitted for indexation at DBLP. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the workshop and attend the workshop to present the paper.
