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.
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

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:
