Call For Papers

Due to international challenges which include the pandemic, we have decided to extend the deadline for paper and poster submissions to January 31, 2021 (final extension).
In addition, we are changing the paper acceptance notification date to March 1, 2021.

The organizing committee has decided that CogSIMA 2021 will be held as a virtual conference.
Even though there is hope with the vaccine coming out, we feel that with the hot spots going on around the world and slow roll out of the vaccine, it is unlikely that a large percentage of the CogSIMA community will feel safe to travel.

Where Cognitive Science meets Computer Science!

Organized by the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society's Technical Committee on Cognitive Situation Management, the CogSIMA conference series provides the premier venue for discussing complex heterogeneous dynamical systems - of interacting humans, machines, and computer agents - whose collective behavior depends on their cognitive capabilities to comprehend, explain, predict and act upon the surrounding operational situations.

Since 2011 the CogSIMA conferences promote a holistic cognitive approach to multidisciplinary research on dynamic cyber-physical-social systems of systems, whose constituent systems can be autonomous, and often collaborate and interoperate with organisations, machines, computer agents and humans situated in complex dynamic environment. Critical to these systems of systems are their cognitive capabilities to sense, perceive and comprehend situations, reason and act on situations, demonstrate abilities of learning, self-organization and collective intelligence, and their ability to consider the impact of interdependencies with the other systems.
Adhering to its successful interdisciplinary tradition, CogSIMA 2021 will provide an inspiring forum for scientists and practitioners from diverse backgrounds including cognitive science, computer science, artificial intelligence, psychology, and human factors.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
A) Situation Management – Foundations
- Conceptual frameworks, architectures, and models of cognitive situation management and control
- New advances in situation awareness, control, and decision support
- Situation awareness: public vs. organizational vs. team vs. individual; distributed vs. shared awareness
- Formalization of situations and situational reasoning
- Situational “Big Data” analysis, situation mining, discovery, early detection of anomalies and patterns
- Stimuli-reaction, negative feedback, and predictive situation control
- Situation modeling, comparison, assessment, validation, metrics, and performance measurements
- Near real-time situation awareness and control
- Mental models, self-awareness, cognitive processes, and impact of barriers (environmental, physiological, psychological, and social barriers)
B) Collective Situation Management and Control
- Collective intelligence and emergent behavior in situation management
- Biologically inspired computational models of situation management
- Cooperation and collaboration in multi-agent situation management
- Models of shared and distributed situation awareness and control
- Adaptation and self-organization in cognitive situation management and control
- Models of collective, autonomous, and resilient situation control in hostile environments
- Integration of self-awareness and self-X capability models into cognitive situation management
C) Human-Artificial Intelligence Situation Management
- Socially sensitive design and socially responsive design
- Situation management in cyber-physical-social systems
- Integration of human and signal intelligence
- Human teaming with autonomous systems, human-AI teaming
- Computer-aided human decision-making in incomplete known, conflicting, and stressful situations
- Processing social media and other related human considerations to improve situation awareness
- The impact of human competence and motivation in situation management
- Distressed and handicapped persons in CogSIMA control loop
D) Situation Management Applications
- System-level experiments and application-specific research
- Situation awareness and control for cybersecurity
- Autonomous vehicles and transportation systems
- Health care and pandemic situation management
- Political cooperation and disruption of fake data
- Defence and autonomous mission control applications

Two types of paper submissions will be accepted:
• Regular Papers (5-8 pages): describe new results that advance the state-of-the-art.
• Poster Presentations (3-5 pages): describe work in progress.

Quantitative and/or qualitative methods and results are welcome, as well as hypotheses-driven or more open-ended exploratory work. Submissions must clearly outline the methodology (manipulations, measurements, environment and context, etc.) and technologies used, for both replicability and enabling in-depth review. In addition, research providing novel system designs, algorithms, interface technologies, and computational methods supporting elements of situation management are encouraged. Submitted papers should address issues related to the general domain of situation management.

All papers must present original and unpublished work that is not currently under review elsewhere.
Each paper will be reviewed by at least three independent referees. Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the conference.
At least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference, unless the TPC grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event who is qualified both to present and answer questions. All paper submissions will be handled electronically in EDAS.
For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 papers.
Accepted papers and poster presentations will be included in the final conference proceedings and submitted for publication in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library

Regular & Poster Papers: January 31, 2021 (Final Extended deadline)
Acceptance Notification: March 1, 2021
Camera Ready: March 31, 2021
