MOTIVATION
---------

The collaboration between Cognitive Science and Artificial
Intelligence had a strong impact for both the disciplines. In AI this
partnership has driven to the realization of intelligent systems based
on plausible models of human cognition. In turn, in cognitive science,
the partnership allowed the development of cognitive models and
architectures (based on information processing, on representations and
their manipulation etc.) providing greater understanding on human
thinking.

The AI and Cognition workshop 2013 (AIC 2013) aims at putting together
researchers coming from different domains (e.g., artificial
intelligence, cognitive science, computer science, engineering,
philosophy, social sciences, etc.) working on the interdisciplinary
field of cognitively inspired artificial systems. Both papers
spotlighting theoretical issues and experimental research in the field
are welcome. The submission of papers regarding the presentation of
realized or under-development cognitively inspired systems and/or
applications is encouraged.

We also particularly welcome papers raising challenging questions,
innovative ideas and out of the box thinking and which, as a
consequence, can help to promote interesting discussions at the
workshop.

Participation of younger researchers and the submission of research
papers also at early stage of work is encouraged as well.


TOPICS
------

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Knowledge Representation and Cognition (e.g. Neural Networks models,
Ontologies and representation of common sense etc.)
- 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
- 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
- Cognitively inspired Machine Learning
- Computational Theories of Learning
- Decision Support Systems

workshop. We welcome the following types of contributions:

- Full research papers (up to 8-12 pages)
- Short research papers (up to 4-6 pages)
- Position statements (up to 2-4 pages)

All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted
according to the information for LNCS Authors:
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0.

Please submit your contributions electronically in PDF format to EasyChair:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aic2013


PROCEEDINGS
-----------

Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings published
on-line by CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org), with ISSN.

At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the
workshop to present the paper and should then register to the AI*IA
conference.

SPECIAL ISSUE
---------

Selected and updated papers of AIC 2013 will be published in a

Special Issue of the Connection Science Journal
(http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/ccos20/current#.Ud7At0H0Fsk)
which is ISI, SCOPUS and DBLP indexed.
