CALL FOR PAPERS: 2nd Symposium on Problem-solving, Creativity and Spatial Reasoning in Cognitive Systems, ProSocrates 2017, 20-21 July, Hanse Wissenschaftskolleg, Delmenhorst, GERMANY
Problem-solving, human creative cognition, spatial cognition and computational creativity are topics often treated separately, despite their major potential for synergies. The ProSocrates Symposium aims to investigate these synergies. The 2nd Edition of the Problem-solving, Creativity and Spatial Reasoning Symposium will take place on the 20-21st of July 2017 at the Hanse Wissenschaftskolleg in Delmenhorst, Germany. Topics ProSocrates welcomes papers on one or more of the general topics of problem-solving, human creative cognition, spatial cognition and computational creativity. Theoretical, computationally applied and empirical papers will be accepted for review. We especially welcome papers which aim to bring together some of these topics. Topics are centered around but not limited to: • Creative cognition • Problem solving • Spatial cognition • Spatial problem solving • Computational creativity • Natural and artificial Cognitive systems • Cognitive modeling • Qualitative Spatial Reasoning • Inductive Reasoning • Deductive Reasoning • Case-Based Reasoning • Image Schemas • Analogy • Concept blending • Visuospatial creativity • Insight and re-representation • Knowledge Representation for creativity and problem-solving • Evolutionary approaches, genetic algorithms Submission Two types of papers are welcome: • Full research papers up to 10 pages in LNCS format + references • Poster abstract submissions - up to 4 pages in LNCS format. Accepted papers will be published in Symposia proceedings as part of CEUR Workshop Proceedings. The best papers will be invited to be submitted in extended form to a Special Issue of the Cognitive Systems Research Journal which is currently under negotiation. Submission will be open from February via easychair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=prosocrates2017 Important Dates Submission of abstracts for full research papers -1st of March, 2017. Submission of full papers and poster abstracts - 1st of April, 2017. Notification of acceptance –1st of May, 2017. Camera ready version - 15th of June, 2017.
