The 28th Modern Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science Conference (MAICS 2017)

April 28-29, 2017

Indiana University/Purdue University – Fort Wayne (IPFW)
Fort Wayne, IN


The MAICS conference traditionally serves as a small but vital forum in the wide range of endeavors that relate to Machine Intelligence and Cognitive Science. Young and old, faculty, researchers, and students can test out ideas, report results, and learn what other people are doing in related fields. You can describe your own interesting research in progress. Graduate students and junior faculty are especially encouraged to submit papers. All submitted papers are peer reviewed for the proceedings publication and conference presentations, and reviewers are encouraged to provide helpful guidance to beginning authors. MAICS provides a friendly complement to more specialized conferences, while fostering quality scholarship.

This year’s theme is Hybrid Human/Machine Reasoning. A special track will be created for papers focusing on human reasoning, machine reasoning, and work allowing the two to complement and augment, rather than replace, each other. This is an active area in cognitive science, AI, and many recent funding areas. Keynote speakers specializing in this theme will be invited. Submissions are not, however, required to fit this theme.


Submissions: Jan. 15 – Mar. 1, 2017
Notifications: March 15, 2017
Revised submissions: March 30, 2017
Early registration: Feb. 15 – Apr. 5, 2017
Conference: April 28-29, 2017


We are accepting either full papers (5-8 pages) or poster abstracts (up to 2 pages). Conference proceedings will be published and archived in CEUR-WS, and indexed by DBLP.
Submissions are accepted through EasyChair. Please see details at the MAICS 2017 website:
