CALL FOR PAPERS: Special issue on Computational Models of Mindreading'
Special issue of 'Cognitive Systems Research' journal
Mindreading, or the ability to represent and reason about the mental states of other agents and oneself, is a pervasive part of cognition that has yet to be deeply explored from a computational perspective. As a fundamental enabler for language understanding, plan recognition, cooperation, competition and moral cognition, it follows that detailed models of mental state attributions are a prerequisite for the development of a more complete theory of the human mind. This special issue seeks to promote interdisciplinary dialogue between computational cognitive modelers, philosophers, and psychologists studying the nature and operation of the human capacity to mindread. The emphasis of the issue will be placed on computational models and how they both inform and are informed by work in other disciplines. Papers on mindreading are invited from AI, cognitive, social and developmental psychology, cognitive neuroscience, linguistics, philosophy of psychology and other related disciplines. Submissions should be sent to either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by September 1st 2012.
