Description

Cognition is studied from various approaches, both from a
computational viewpoint allowing to understand and to reproduce the
complexity of human brain functions and from the humanity
investigation point of view, e.g. psychology, making a link between
memory, behaviour and feelings. Emotions started to be recognised as
important factors of the human cognitive system. The increasing
interest in Affect computing, Pervasive and Ubiquitous systems, and
Socially-inspired systems gave more ground in support of emotions.
This symposium aims to be a meeting forum to report from both
computing standpoint and humanities viewpoint on the interaction
between emotions and cognition for the derivation of affect mental
states. This will include the application of such models in problem
solving, learning and decision-making.
