Call for Papers
The fields of cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and the social sciences can together create a better understanding of cognition and social processes than they can independently of each other. Some efforts in social sciences, especially social simulations, have evolved an understanding of social processes in societies independently from the other two fields. However Sun (2006) among other has shown that there is relation between individual cognition and social processes. Can this connection be understood by exploring the relationship between computational cognitive modeling and social simulation? How is the cognition of a society different from individual cognition? In this session we will examine
these questions and many more.  We invite submissions of research that investigate any of the following topics: (1) the relation between individual and social cognition, (2) multi-agent models that are related to advances in individual cognition, (3) social simulations that utilize cognitive science or artificial intelligence techniques, (4) aspects of social cognition that require modeling, and (5) the integration of cognitive models of learning into multi-agent

Submission of Papers
Authors are invited to submit their draft paper (between 5 to 7 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12) to Sule Yildirim ( or Bill Rand ( before the deadline.

These are general guidelines, if you would like to submit in a different format please contact the coordinators.
Papers must not have been previously published or current submitted for publication elsewhere. Upon acceptance authors will be asked to follow the IEEE style format in preparing their papers for publication (max. 7 pages).  The first page of the submission should include:
-Title of the paper
-Name, affiliation, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number and fax number for each author 
-Name of the author who will present the paper should be indicated
-A maximum of five keywords
Session Format
The session will begin with an overview of the topic by the coordinators, and the peer-reviewed papers will then be orally presented.  If time permits a wrap-up discussion will take place at the end of the session.
Important Dates
