MSCogComp 2012 : Modeling and Simulation for Cognitive Computation: IWish 2012 Track & Journal Special Issue
Call For Papers
Track: Modeling and Simulation for Cognitive Computation
The goal of this special session is to explore the use of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) in the emerging inter-disciplinary domain of Cognitive Computation that bridges the gap between life sciences, social sciences, engineering, physical and mathematical sciences, and humanities. Cognitive Computation is an exciting area of multi-disciplinary research covering biologically inspired computational accounts of all aspects of natural and artificial cognitive systems. Authors of selected papers presented at the Special Session will be invited to submit expanded and significantly revised versions of their manuscripts to a follow-on Special Issue of Springer’s Cognitive Computation journal (SCI-E Indexed). Details will follow the Conference.
For the proposed Special Session, we welcome papers, not submitted elsewhere for review, with a focus on modeling, simulation and engineering of systems in the domain of cognitive computation. Topics of interest range from, but are not limited to:
Techniques of interest:
· Agent-based Modeling
· Complex Network based Models
· Multimodal methods for analysis of data
· Other methods from Artificial intelligence, neural networks, cognitive neuromorphic engineering and other hardware implementations, cognitive robotics, autonomous cognitive systems, neuroscience, nanotechnology, self-organizing, swarm and immune systems, complex systems and control theory, and computational cognitive neuroscience.
· General purpose modeling & simulation paradigms
Areas of Application:
· Brain, cognition, perception, action, attention, learning, memory, decision-making, language processing, communication, reasoning, problem solving, and consciousness aspects of cognition.
· Modeling & Simulation of Cognitive disorders (Schizophrenia, dementia etc.)
· Modeling & Simulation of Brain and other cognitive functions
· Use of agent-based and complex network methods in the development of autonomous systems
· Social Network Analysis to study spread of Brain/Cognition related diseases
· Use of cognition, attention, consciousness in robotics, sensors and autonomous systems
· Management of Healthcare related to psychology/psychiatry
· Verification and Validation of Cognitive Computation related simulations
· Modeling and Simulation of Body Sensor Networks for cognitive health
· Modeling, Simulation and development of Pervasive and Ambient Assisted Living systems, Disease tracking and monitoring systems for Cognitive disorders
· Modeling and simulation of consensus formation in brain

Final Camera-Ready Submission: June 12, 2012
Authors' Guidelines (further information author’s instruction section)
Extended abstracts (minimum 2 pages), full draft papers or other proposals should be submitted for the review process through the submission section by April 12, 2012
The extended abstract or the full draft paper must contain title, authors, affiliations, addresses, main body and references.
Each extended abstract or full draft paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee taking into consideration scientific quality, originality and relevance. Only original papers, written in English will be accepted.
The extended abstract or the full draft paper should be prepared by following the final paper formatting. However any type of paper formatting can be accepted for the first submission.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE
Notification of acceptance will be sent by May 12, 2012.
CAMERA READY PAPER SUBMISSION
The International Program Committee will accept two types of camera ready papers: extended paper (10 pages, 2 columns); regular paper (6 pages, 2 columns) both for regular and special sessions.
The camera ready paper must adhere to the conference template. The .dot file contains the complete instructions for preparing a camera ready copy for the Proceedings. The final version of the paper must be a PDF file.
Your camera ready paper (extended paper or regular paper) in PDF format must be submitted by using the submission section before the June 12, 2012
The page limit for manuscripts is ten (10) pages (included in the author registration fee).Additional pages will require an additional fee.
If your work must be cleared or approved before publication by your institution, company, or governmental agency, please be sure that process will be completed by the due date above or we will not be able to include it in the CD Conference Proceedings.
