CFP: Workshop Cognitive Collaborative Appliances (CCA) - ECAI 2008

http://cca.samos.aegean.gr

Workshop
                            on
           Cognitive Collaborative Appliances:
                   From Theory to Praxis

               To be held with ECAI 2008
                     21-22 July 2008
                     Patras, Greece
               http://cca.samos.aegean.gr

Objectives
>From cognitive ergonomics to intelligent assistants, cognitive
robotics, and human-robots interaction there is a wide breadth
of theories and techniques concerned with the development of
intelligent artifacts that are able to exhibit helpful behavior
to their (software and human) peers.
The ultimate objective is the development of systems that will
act in a seamless and adaptive manner in the environment of their
peers, serving their purpose with respect to the intentions,
goals and restrictions of the peers, as any benevolent partner
would do. We call such systems Cognitive Collaborative Appliances (CCA).
Cognitive Collaborative Appliances are systems that have an
extended knowledge of the context in which they act including
the knowledge about the tasks, goals, and constraints of their
peers, as well as the ability to recognize situations, to
learn and manage their plans, and to adapt, exhibiting helpful
behavior.

  Examples of such appliances include "cognitive TVs", which
helps people locate the best TV programs that fit their mood
and preferences, "cognitive wheel chairs", which helps people
with severe limitations to reach a target location safely and
according to their preferences, "cognitive PDAs", which helps
the user to schedule her obligations that maybe complex and
conflicting, and appliances for gaming and entertainment, which
change the scenario based on the user's mood, abilities, and
preferences.


Scope and Topics
 Major issues to be discussed at this workshop include the
 following:
1.        What exactly are the principles upon which we can develop
        CCAs?
2.        To what extend these principles should drive the
        development of the target CCAs?
3.        Are domain/context-independent frameworks and technologies
        available that can readily be used for the development of
        CCA systems? How far are we from having such tools?
4.        How should we evaluate the performance of the available
        tools and systems?

The list of topics within the interest of this workshop includes:
-        Computational frameworks/theories/methodologies for CCAs:
      state-of-the art, issues and challenges
-        Context awareness (context sensing, affect/mood recognition,
      situation/event recognition, context-sensitive reactivity
      and plan management) for CCAs
-        User profiling and system adaptation (including single-
      and multi-agent system adaptation)
-        Decision making (plan management techniques, reasoning
      with uncertainty)
-        Intelligent interaction (dialogue management, natural
      multimodal interfaces, human-robot interaction)
-        Applications (ambient intelligence, medical therapy, games,
      entertainment, personal wellness, etc.)

Important Dates

10 April 2008        Deadline for paper submission.
10 May 2008        Notification of papers acceptance/rejection.
26 May 2008        Deadline for camera-ready paper.
