The research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been based, from an historical standpoint, on a strong collaboration with Cognitive Science. This collaboration, has produced - along the years - mutual benefits.  In AI this partnership has driven to the realization of intelligent systems based on plausible models of human cognition.
In turn, in cognitive science, this partnership allowed the development of cognitive models and architectures providing greater understanding on human thinking.

In recent years, after a period of partial fragmentation of the research directions, the area of cognitively inspired artificial systems is progressively attracting a renewed attention both from academia and industry and the awareness about the need for additional research in this interdisciplinary field is gaining widespread acceptance.

AIC 2017 is the fourth appointment of the workshop series AIC (, started in 2013 and stemming from the need of creating an international scientific forum for the discussion and the presentation of the theoretical and applied research developments in the field of cognitively inspired Artificial Intelligence.

SPECIAL-FOCUS: AIC 2017 particularly welcome papers related to the problems concerning cognitively-inspired methods of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Knowledge Acquisition and Learning, Knowledge Processing Mechanisms in Cognitive Systems and Architectures
As for the previous editions, the AIC 2017 workshop aims at putting together researchers coming from different domains (e.g., artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science, engineering, philosophy, social sciences, etc.) working on the interdisciplinary field of cognitively inspired artificial systems.
Both papers spotlighting theoretical issues and experimental research in the field are welcome. We also particularly welcome papers raising challenging questions, innovative ideas and out of the box thinking and which, as a consequence, can help to promote interesting discussions at the workshop.

Argument & Cognition: AIC 2017 will host the launching of a new workshop on Argument and Cognition as a special session/track within the AIC program. This will aim to examine the kinks between the computational nature of human reasoning and the dialectical nature of argumentation. In particular, it will address the question of how argumentation could form an underlying theoretical and practical basis for building Cognitive Systems. Papers in this special session will concern the synthesis of work from Cognitive Science and Psychology on (high-level) aspects of cognition with work on Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence and other fields. (Some further information on this link of Argument and Cognition can be found at


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Knowledge Representation and Cognition (e.g. Neural Networks models, Ontologies and representation of common sense etc.)
- Cognitive Architectures (e.g. SOAR, ACT-R) and Cognitive modelling for Artificial Systems
- B.I.C.A. (Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures) and systems
- Cognitive Robotics
- Human-Robot Interaction
- Evaluation of cognitively driven AI systems compared with other AI approaches
- Cognition and Semantic Web
- Methodological open questions on AI and Cognition
- Automated reasoning: deductive, probabilistic, diagnostic, causal and analogical inference
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Historical and theoretical relation among Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence
- Knowledge discovery and acquisition
- Modelling of human learning and knowledge acquisition in complex domains
- Computational Linguistics, Natural Language Processing & Understanding
- Logic and Reasoning
- Evolutionary Computation
- Cognitively inspired Machine Learning
- Computational Theories of Learning
- Computational Models of Narrative for Artificial Systems (Visuo-Auditory Narrativity, Perception)
- Cognition and Moving Image
- Computational Creativity
- Decision Support Systems

Topics for the special session on Argument and Cognition include links of
Argumentation with:

- Human Reasoning
- Human Decision Making
- Comprehension
- Persuasion
- Learning

All papers must present original and unpublished work that is not
currently under review. Papers will be evaluated according to their
significance, originality, technical content and relevance to the
workshop by the PC. We welcome the following types of contributions:

- Full research papers (up to 8-14 pages)
- Short research papers (up to 4-7 pages)

All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted
according to the information for LNCS Authors:

Please submit your contributions electronically in PDF format to the AIC 2017 EasyChair:


Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings published
on-line by CEUR Workshop Proceedings (, with ISSN.
AIC proceedings are DBLP indexed:

At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the workshop and
attend the workshop to present the paper.


We are planning a journal special issue focused on the AIC’17 Special Focus themes.
