Call For Papers


The central theme of EBICC-2015 is Situated Embodied Cognition - Information and Autonomous Action, and focuses on questions concerning the role of the informational coupling between the cognitive agent, and the environment and its epistemological implications.

This theme provides the main guideline for the debate, and alternative views and proposals are expected and welcomed for work submission and presentation.

The key questions under the main theme are:

How does an agent construct knowledge with the information gathered from its interactions with the environment ?
What is the role played by the agent's cognitive embodiment ?
What are the issues concerning knowledge representation by the mind from the perspective of situated embodied cognition ?
Can the processes underlying cognition in natural systems be emulated by machines, or be investigated by means of computer programs, or be simulated in computers, considering the viewpoint of situated embodied cognition ?
Which mathematical approaches should be used to lay the foundations of the modelling of cognitive processes ?
Are there methods to assess the significance of hypotheses and the efficacy of models constructed to conform to the principles underlying the viewpoint of situated embodied cognition ?
What are the epistemological questions and the ethical consequences concerning the development of technological artifacts that may affect the cognitive attributes of individuals ?


In addition to the central theme, we expect and encourage the submission of works in all subjects relevant to cognitive science research and thinking, and here we indicate some examples of topics for submission:

Cognitive architectures; related topics in computational intelligence; connectionist cognitive architectures; artificial intelligence; machine learning; self-organized cognitive systems; adaptive perception-action based systems; cognitive robotics; developmental robotics.
Cognitive modeling; theoretical and empirical approaches to cognitive modeling; neuromathematics; insights on cognition obtained through functional brain imaging; logical modeling of cognitive processes; cognitive agents, and artificial life .
Semiotic and pragmatic aspects of cognition; information, knowledge and cognition; cognitive linguistics; representation issues; context and cognition.
Theories of mind and cognition: philosophical and theoretical approaches; philosophical questions about cognitive features; history of the conceptions of mind and cognition.
Cognitive technology ethics and epistemological questions; philosophical questions and methodological issues concerning the development of technologies that affect or modify cognition of individual and social behavior, and related to: human-machine interfaces, transhumanism, telepresence, ubiquitous computing, affective robotics, cognitive games, and intelligent objects.


EBICC-2015 features several sub-themes that can be considered as suggestions for submission topics:

• Information, mind, and cognition.
• Information, structure, and cognition.
• Logic, information, and intelligence.
• Semiotics and cognition.
• Language, communication, and cognition.
• Perception, action, and attention.
• Art, emotion, neuromodulation, and cognition.
• History of the concepts of cognition, mind, and brain.
• Computational modeling of cognition.
• Machine learning, neuromathematics, and cognition.
• Cognitive computational architectures.
• Cognitive robotics.
• Cognition, technology, and action.
• Cognitive appliances and technological applications of cognitive systems.
• Agents and cognitive games and their educational and socio-cultural roles.
• Ubiquitous Computing and its relations with cognition and society.
• Computational ubiquity, telepresence and personal identity.
• Ethical consequences of information technology and cognitive issues.
• Information and autonomous action: ethical issues and epistemological questions.

EBICC-2015 will accept the following categories for submissions:

Full papers - for reporting complete original works of all researchers and students, with up to 10 pages of text , including abstract, references, and information about the authors, and up to two extra pages of figures
Brief papers - letters for communicating new works or findings of non-student researchers or post-doctoral scholars, with up to 5 pages of text, including abstract, figures, references, and information about the authors.
Posters - for reporting current works of students (undergraduate or graduate). The poster proposal must be submitted in the form of a one-page abstract with references and indication of the sponsoring institution and advisor. Accepted posters should be printed and assembled by the authors.
