CALL FOR PAPERS: Special Issue of Knowledge-based systems on cognitive models and reasoning for human-aware interaction

To appear in Knowledge-Based Systems (published by Elsevier)

** Guest editors **

- Mark Hoogendoorn VU University Amsterdam, Amsterdam, the Netherlands 
- Catholijn M. Jonker Delft University of Technology, Delft, the Netherlands 

** Important dates **

- Manuscript submission: 16 March 2012
- Notification of review results: 20 April 2012
- Submission of revised papers: 18 May 2012

** Theme and topics **

In keeping with the goals of Knowledge-Based Systems in providing a platform 
for focusing on systems that use knowledge-based techniques to support human 
decision-making, learning and action, and for emphasizing the practical 
significance of such systems in modern computer development and usage, we 
solicit original articles for the special issue on CMRHAI: ?Cognitive Models 
and Reasoning for Human-Aware Interaction?. In the development of 
knowledge-based systems, the interaction with the user is of utmost importance. 
In order to truly understand the behavior of a user, and to provide a good 
means for support, the utilization of cognitive models and reasoning can prove 
to be highly beneficial. In this special issue, the main aim is advancing both 
the theoretical understanding as well as enhancing the current knowledge about 
the practical benefits of the utilization of these cognitive models and 
reasoning. Works that describe theoretical computational cognitive models (also 
including related domains, such as neuro-cognitive models), computational 
reasoning approaches inspired by cognitive theories or models, the application 
of cognitive approaches (either explicit or implicit) in interaction with 
users, and the evaluation of such systems are invited for this Special Issue.

** Submission instructions **

Authors should submit their papers via EES: 
and select ?Special Issue: CMRHAI? when asked to indicate the ?Article Type? in 
the submission process. The same homepage contains detailed information for 
authors. It is recommended that a paper does not exceed 20 pages.

Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently 
under consideration for publication elsewhere. Refereeing and the selection of 
papers will be carried out according to the standards of the journal of 
Knowledge-Based Systems
