The research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been based, from a
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

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 2018 is the 6th appointment of the workshop series AIC (http://dblp.uni-, 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. The previous AIC workshops have been held in Turin (2013 to 2015 editions), New York (2016), Larnaca (2017).

*SPECIAL-TRACK*: AIC 2018 will host a special track on the theoretical and applicative perspectives of the framework of Conceptual Spaces (CS), as introduced by Peter Gärdenfors (2000). Such framework provides a geometric model for the representation of human conceptual knowledge that bridges the symbolic and the sub-conceptual levels of representation. The model has already proven to have a broad range of applicability, not only within cognitive science but also across a number of AI fields (e.g. Computer vision, Knowledge representation and Reasoning, Computational linguistics etc.).

As for the previous editions, the AIC 2018 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. The submission of papers regarding the presentation
of realized or under-development cognitively inspired systems and/or
applications is encouraged.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Knowledge Representation and Cognition (e.g. Neural Networks models,
Conceptual Spaces, Ontologies  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
- Cognition and Semantic Web
- Cognitive Systems Design
- 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
- 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
