First International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Cognition

AI*IA 2013 Workshop


    AIC 2013 is an official AI*IA 2013 workshop, co-located with the XIII International Conference of the Italian Association on Artificial Intelligence.

  • NEWS: The Proceedings of AIC 2013 are now available on CEUR, VOL.1110.

  • Scientific Motivation

    The collaboration between Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence had a strong impact for both the disciplines. In AI this partnership has driven to the realization of intelligent systems based on plausible models of human cognition. In turn, in cognitive science, the partnership allowed the development of cognitive models and architectures (based on information processing, on representations and their manipulation etc.) providing greater understanding on human thinking.

The AI and Cognition workshop 2013 (AIC 2013) aims at putting together researchers coming from different domains (e.g., artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science, engineering, philosophy, social sciences, etc.) working on the interdisciplinary field of cognitively inspired artificial systems. Both papers spotlighting theoretical issues and experimental research in the field are welcome. The submission of papers regarding the presentation of realized or under-development cognitively inspired systems and/or applications is encouraged.

We also particularly welcome papers raising challenging questions, innovative ideas and out of the box thinking and which, as a consequence, can help to promote interesting discussions at the workshop.

Participation of younger researchers and the submission of research papers also at early stage of work is encouraged as well.


    - Selected and updated papers will be published in special issue of the Connection Science Journal, (ISI, SCOPUS and DBLP indexed).
