CF Papers and Tutorials: ICCM 2010 International Conference on Cognitive Modeling


ICCM 2010, 5-8 August 2010,  Philadelphia, PA
    http://iccm2010.cs.drexel.edu/      Papers due 19 April 2010

ICCM is the premier international conference for research on
computational models and computation-based theories of human
behavior. ICCM is a forum for presenting, discussing, and evaluating
the complete spectrum of cognitive models, including connectionism,
symbolic modeling, dynamical systems, Bayesian modeling, and cognitive
architectures. ICCM includes basic and applied research, across a wide
variety of domains, ranging from low-level perception and attention to
higher-level problem-solving and learning.

 ICCM 2010 Conference Tutorial Call, 5 August 2010,  Philadelphia, PA
    http://iccm2010.cs.drexel.edu/tutorials.html    proposals due 8 March 2010

The Tutorials program at the International Conference on Cognitive
Modeling (ICCM) 2010 will be held on 5 Aug 20010. It will provide
conference participants with the opportunity to gain new insights,
knowledge, and skills from a broad range of areas in the field of
cognitive modeling. Tutorial topics will be presented in a taught
format and are likely to range from practical guidelines to academic
issues and theory. Tutorials at ICCM have been held many times before,
and this year's program will be modelled after them and after the
series held at the Cognitive Science Conference.

Tutorial participants will either be doing cognitive modeling or be
interested in learning more. They will be looking for insights into
their own areas and summaries of other areas providing tools,
techniques, and results to use in their own teaching and research.

Tutorials must present tutorial material, that is, provide results
that are established and to do so in an interactive format. They will
tend to involve an introduction to technical skills or methods (e.g.,
cognitive modelling in Soar or ACT-R, statistical "causal" modelling,
or methods of analysing qualitative observational data). They are
likely to include substantial review of material. The level of
presentation can assume that the attendees have at least a first
degree in a cognate area. Tutorials are welcome to assume a higher
level if necessary. On the other hand, tutorials about "last week's
results from your lab" are not acceptable.
