Summaries

Summary Sentence: The Third Annual Conference on Advances in Cognitive Systems will take place May 29-31, 2015, at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia.

Full Summary: This goal of the meeting is to bring together researchers with interest in building cognitive systems that are distinguished by a focus on high-level cognition and decision making, reliance on rich, structured representations, a systems-level perspective, use of heuristics to handle complexity, and incorporation of insights about human thinking.

The Third Annual Conference on Advances in Cognitive Systems will take place May 29-31, 2015, at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia. This goal of the meeting is to bring together researchers with interest in building cognitive systems that are distinguished by a focus on high-level cognition and decision making, reliance on rich, structured representations, a systems-level perspective, use of heuristics to handle complexity, and incorporation of insights about human thinking.

The Conference provides a venue for dissemination of research results pertaining to the original, yet unanswered, questions of Artificial Intelligence: to produce computational artifacts that reproduce a broad range of human cognitive abilities.

The conference welcomes work on any topic related to the representation or organization of complex knowledge structures, their use in multi-step cognition, or their acquisition from experience or instruction. Some functional capabilities that arise in this context include, but are not limited to:

  • Conceptual Inference and Reasoning
  • Memory Storage and Retrieval
  • Language Processing
  • Social Cognition and Interaction
  • High-level Execution and Control
  • Problem Solving and Heuristic Search
  • Cognitive Aspects of Emotion and Personality
  • Metacognition and Meta-level Reasoning
  • Structural Learning and Knowledge Capture

We especially encourage participation from researchers working in these and other areas who are interested in complex cognition, human-level intelligence, and related topics.

Paper submissions are 16 pages. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and also may be invited to appear in the online journal, Advances in Cognitive Systems.Submissions should be formatted according to instructions provided at http://www.cogsys.org/formatting, which provides Latex and Word templates.

Each submission should state explicitly the problem or capability it addresses, describe its response to this problem, make claims about this approach, and provide evidence in support of these claims. Every paper should also discuss related efforts, examine limitations of the reported work, and outline plans for future research.

Important Dates for Paper Submission:
February 22 (midnight PDT):  Deadline for paper submission
March 30, 2015:  Decisions about paper acceptance
April 27, 2015:  Deadline for final papers
May 8, 2015:  Deadline for early registration
May 29-31, 2015:  Conference

Workshop Proposals:
ACS invites proposals for half-day workshops to be held at the end of the conference on the afternoon of Sunday, May 31, 2015. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to meet and discuss targeted issues pertaining to cognitive systems — providing an intimate and informal setting for active exchange among researchers, developers, and users on topics of current interest. The format of workshops will be determined by their organizers. Organizers are highly encouraged to propose alternative formats beyond paper/poster presentations, and should encourage the submission and presentation of position papers that discuss new research ideas. Proposals for workshops should be 2-3 pages in length and describe the topic, the format, and an explanation of target participation. Workshop organizers must submit their proposals via email to Mark Riedl (riedl@cc.gatech.edu) by March 1, 2015.
