The Third Annual Conference on Advances in Cognitive Systems will take place May 28-31, 2015, at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The main conference will be held on May 29-31 and related workshops including the student workshop and a workshop on Goal Reasoning will be held on May 28. An independent workshop on Computational Models of Narrative will be co-located with the Advances in Cognitive Systems conference. This workshop has a separate registration.
The goal of the Conference 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 meeting 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.The conference fee will cover conference materials, lunches, and refreshments and also includes registration (and refreshments) for the ACS workshops.
