The Ninth Annual Conference on Advances in Cognitive Systems will take place from Monday, November 15, through Thursday, November 18, 2021. Workshops will occur on Monday and the regular program will begin on Tuesday. The event will be virtual, as it was last year, due to COVID-19.
The conference welcomes many types of research, including demonstrations of new capabilities, empirical studies of implemented systems, and formal analyses of complex tasks. The term "cognitive" refers to any computational entity that thinks or reasons, whether or not it works the same way as humans.
The objective of the conference is to bring together researchers who pursue the original goals of artificial intelligence and cognitive science. That is, the overarching theme is to explain cognition in computational terms and to reproduce a broad range of intelligent behaviors in computational artifacts. Functional abilities that arise in this context include:
Some research communities already address such issues, including those dealing with cognitive architectures, commonsense reasoning, cognitive robotics, qualitative modeling, and human-machine teaming. We encourage participation from anyone who is interested in computational approaches to complex cognition, human-level intelligence, and related topics.
We invite researchers to submit papers for presentation at the conference.
Authors of papers accepted for oral presentation may be invited to publish an expanded version as an article in Advances in Cognitive Systems, an archival electronic journal associated with the conference.
Details on the submission, review, and publication process can be found HERE, including the review form used for evaluation.
The Ninth Annual Conference on Advances in Cognitive Systems will run from the morning EST on Monday, November 15, through the afternoon on Thursday, November 18, 2021. Workshops will be on Monday, November 15, and technical talks will begin on Tuesday. The meeting will include invited addresses, technical presentations, and poster sessions in Zoom breakout rooms to foster interactions among participants. Details about conference presentations will be available in the coming months.
