Cognitive Agents: Theory & Applications

A workshop within the framework of ICCS 2010



Home Program Committee Important Dates Instructions for Authors



Traditional agent-based models accurately approximate the behaviour of simple or simplified natural and man-made systems by mimicking and often bio-mimicking simple entities. They fall short of mimicking the behaviour of “sophisticated” animals and humans. “Cognitive agents” partially solve this problem by performing “Cognitive Acts” (i.e., a sequence consisting of all of the following acts: Perceiving, Reasoning, Judging, Responding, and Learning) as opposed to Agents, who perform “Reflexive Acts” (i.e., Perceiving and Responding).

This workshop running within the framework of ICCS 2010 , the International Conference on Computational Science 2010, focuses on current research on theory and applications of cognitive agents and on the computational intelligence methodologies employed to allow Cognitive Agents performing Cognitive Acts.

If you share our interest in cognitive agents and conduct either theoretical or applied research on this topic, we invite you to submit a paper on your research. We seek papers on unpublished, mature, and original research work that has not been previously submitted anywhere else.

Instructions For Authors


Top
This workshop runs within the framework of ICCS 2010 , the International Conference on Computational Science 2010, and follows ICCS 2010 rules for paper submission, review, and publication.

The submitted paper must be camera-ready and formatted according to the rules of Procedia Computer Science (for formatting information see for text/latex and for MSword). PostScript and source versions of your paper must be submitted electronically through the paper submission system.

Please, note that papers must not exceed ten pages in length, when typeset using the Procedia format.

To submit your paper go to http://www.iccs-meeting.org/iccs2010/papers/upload.php, follow the instructions, and submit your paper. Please, make sure that you submit your paper to the "Cognitive Agents: Theory & Applications" workshop. Additionally, after you have submitted your paper using the ICCS 2010 paper submission system, please, e-mail your paper to both the Workshop Chair, Anna T. Lawniczak (alawnicz@uoguelph.ca), and to the Workshop Vice-Chair, Bruno N. Di Stefano (b.distefano@ieee.org).

Papers accepted for this workshops will be published in the ICCS 2010 Proceedings printed by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series (on-line and CD/USB stick). Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. The submitted paper must be camera-ready and formatted according to the rules of Procedia Computer Science.
