Meeting Description:

AIC 2014: 2nd Edition of the International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Cognition

Turin, Italy, November 26-27 2014
Workshop website:


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 2nd edition of the AI and Cognition workshop (AIC 2014) 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.

Invited Speakers:

- Diego Marconi, University of Torino, Italy
- Aaron Sloman, University of Birmingham, UK
- Giulio Sandini, IIT, Italy

Call for Papers:

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.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Knowledge representation and cognition (e.g. Neural Networks models,
Ontologies and representation of common sense etc.)
- Cognitive architectures (e.g. SOAR, ACT-R) and cognitive modelling for
artificial systems
- B.I.C.A. (Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures) and systems
- Cognitive robotics
- Evaluation of cognitively driven AI systems compared with other AI approaches
- Cognition and semantic web
- Methodological open questions on AI and cognition
- Automated reasoning: Deductive, probabilistic, diagnostic, causal and
analogical inference
- Historical and theoretical relation among cognitive science and artificial
- Knowledge discovery and acquisition
- Modelling of human learning and knowledge acquisition in complex domains
- Computational linguistics, natural language processing & understanding
- Logic and reasoning
- Evolutionary computation
- Cognitively inspired machine learning
- Computational theories of learning
- Decision support systems
- Computational creativity

Important Dates:

September 21, 2014: Paper submission deadline


Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings published online by CEUR Workshop Proceedings (, with ISSN.

Special Issue:

As for the previous edition of the workshop we are currently trying to arrange a special issue for selected papers in an indexed international Journal.
