of the Italian Association for Cognitive Sciences

DEADLINE EXTENDED - September 13th

Department of Psychology, Second University of Naples

Italian Association for Cognitive Sciences

The 6th Annual Conference of the Italian Association for Cognitive Sciences is the meeting place for Italian cognitive scientists, coming from various disciplines, who present original studies and researches on natural (human beings and animals) and artificial (computers, robots, computer networks, etc.) cognitive systems.
This year’s conference is organized within the scientific event "FuturoRemoto" ( and shares an afternoon of joint work with WIVACE09 (Italian Workshop of Artificial Life and Evolutionary Computation - which will be held in Naples from the 23rd to the 25th of November 2009.

In honour of the bicentenary of Charles Darwin’s birth, the organizing committees of the two events share the intention of inviting key speakers to thoroughly analyse the impact of Darwinism in scientific "non-biological" branches. Each day there will be a plenary talk on such topics as "Darwinism and technology", "Darwinism and cultural evolution", and so forth. The complete program will be published online by September 10th.

The AISC09 Organization Committee invites submissions of papers on a variety of Cognitive Science topics intended for an interdisciplinary audience (i.e. excluding excessively technical works or studies limited to particular disciplines or methodologies). Among the topics of interest for the Conference are:

Cognitive and Neurocognitive Models; Motivational and Emotive Aspects of Behaviour; Psychopathology; Agent-based Simulations; Biologically Plausible Computational Models; Social Cognitive Theory; Economy and Cognitive Science; Natural/Artificial Systems; Computation and Cognitive Science; Cognitive Science Epistemology; Philosophy of Mind; Applications of Cognitive Science; Cognitive Technologies; Reasoning; Cognitive Linguistics and Psycholinguistics; Linguistic, Social and Cultural Anthropology; Distributed Cognition.

Papers must be written in Italian and submitted using the Easychair system ( The length of each paper must be between 7000 and 12000 characters (including spaces). The template and detailed instructions are available on the Conference website ( The Programme Committee will select the accepted papers and will choose the form of presentation (oral or poster).

In order to make blind reviewing possible, authors must omit their names and affiliations from the paper. When referring to one's own work, use the third person rather than the first person. For example, say "Previously, X and Y (2007) have shown that...", rather than "In our previous work (2007) we have shown that...”

For accepted papers, such identifying information can be added to the final camera-ready version for publication.

All the accepted papers will be gathered in the Conference Proceedings, published by the University of Naples "Federico II" ( The print version of the proceedings will be distributed during the Conference to registered participants. The e-book version will be freely downloadable from the websites of the Conference (, of the Publisher ( and of the Italian Association for Cognitive Sciences (
