Advances in Cognitive Systems (ISSN 2324-8416) publishes research articles, review papers, and essays on the computational study of human-level intelligence, integrated intelligent systems, cognitive architectures, and related topics. Research on cognitive systems is distinguished by a focus on high-level cognition, reliance on rich, structured representations, a systems-level perspective, use of heuristics to handle complexity, and incorporation of insights about human thinking. Advances in Cognitive Systems reviews submissions within approximately three months and publishes accepted papers on the journal Web site immediately upon receipt of final versions. Articles are distributed freely over the internet by the Cognitive Systems Foundation.

Advances in Cognitive Systems also organises a meeting for research on the initial goals of artificial intelligence and cognitive science, which aimed to explain the mind in computational terms and to reproduce the entire range of human cognitive abilities in computational artifacts. Many researchers remain committed to this original vision, and Advances in Cognitive Systems provides a place to present recent results and pose new challenges for the field. The meetings bring together researchers with interests in human-level intelligence, complex cognition, integrated intelligent systems, cognitive architectures, and related topics.
The 2011 AAAI Fall Symposium on Advances in Cognitive Systems took place in Arlington, Virginia, in November 2011. The pages for the 2011 Symposium can be found here.
The First Annual Conference on Advances in Cognitive Systems took place in Palo Alto, California, in December 2012. The pages for the 2012 Conference can be found here.
The Second Annual Conference on Advances in Cognitive Systems will take place in Baltimore, Maryland, in December 2013. The pages for the 2013 Conference can be found here.
Authors are welcome to submit papers for publication either to the electronic journal Advances in Cognitive Systems or to the annual conference of the same name.
Submissions to the journal should be at most 16 pages in length. If a journal submission is received at least one month before the conference deadline and is accepted for publication, its authors will be invited and encouraged to present a talk at the conference based on its content.
Submissions to the conference should be either short (at most eight pages) or long (at most 16 pages). Short papers accepted for presentation at the meeting will appear in a separate conference proceedings. Long papers accepted for presentation may either be included in the proceedings or be invited to appear in the journal, depending on the program chairs' decision.
