Call For Papers

The Seventh Annual Conference on Advances in Cognitive Systems (ACS 2019) will occur this coming August from Friday the 2nd through Monday the 5th. The event will take place in the Stata Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. The meeting welcomes many types of research, including demonstrations of new capabilities, empirical studies of implemented systems, and formal analyses of complex tasks. The term "cognitive" refers to any artifact that thinks or reasons, whether or not it works the same way as humans. As explained on the ACS-19 web site (, the objective is to bring together a diverse set of researchers who pursue the original goals of artificial intelligence. That is, the overarching theme of the conference is to explain cognition in computational terms and to reproduce a broad range of intelligent behaviors and human abilities in computational artifacts.

Some functional abilities that arise in this context include the following.

* Cognitive Aspects of Emotion and Personality
* Conceptual Inference and Reasoning
* High-level Execution and Control
* Language Processing and Dialogue
* Memory Storage and Retrieval
* Metacognition and Meta-level Reasoning
* Multi-Tasking and Attention
* Problem Solving, Planning, and Heuristic Search
* Social Cognition and Interaction
* Structural Learning and Knowledge Capture
* Vision and High-level Perception

Some research communities already address such issues, including those dealing with cognitive architectures, commonsense reasoning, cognitive robotics, qualitative modeling, and many others. We encourage participation from anyone who is interested in computational approaches to complex cognition, human-level intelligence, and related topics.

The submission deadline is May 24, 2019. Technical submissions are single-column and up to sixteen pages in length. See for specific formatting instructions. Accepted papers will have a final, expanded length of twenty pages and will appear in Advances in Cognitive Systems, an electronic journal that serves both as conference proceedings and archival publication. If you decide to submit, please examine the review form at Referees will expect authors to address the questions found at this location.


This year we offer three workshops at the beginning of the conference (Friday, August 2) to provide participants an intimate setting where they can share ideas and discuss directed topics within cognitive systems research. The current topics center on high-level goal reasoning; human-robot interaction; and cognitive vision. Papers will be published as separate volumes but will use the same ACS short and long formats. Conference attendees that wish to participate without paper submissions may submit a brief statement of interest. For detailed information about these workshops, consult the following links.
