CogSIMA 2018 : 2018 IEEE Conference on Cognitive and Computational Aspects of Situation Management
Call For Papers
CogSIMA 2018 is sponsored by the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society of the IEEE
Call for Papers and Tutorials
CogSIMA 2018 continues and expands the research domain of situation management that was established by the first conference CogSIMA 2011. The aim of CogSIMA conferences is to provide a venue for presenting scientific results on interdisciplinary studies of complex heterogeneous dynamical systems that include humans, physical systems, and computer agents whose behaviors depend on situations.
All papers must present original and unpublished work that is not currently under review elsewhere. Each paper will be reviewed by at least three independent referees. Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference. Three types of paper submissions will be accepted:
Oral Papers (5-7 pages): Papers that describe new results that advance the state-of-the-art
Poster Papers (3-5 pages): Papers that describe work in progress
Late Breaking Reports (2-3 pages): Papers to present early findings of cutting-edge research
Quantitative and/or qualitative methods and results are welcome, as well as hypotheses-driven or more open-ended exploratory work. Submissions must clearly outline the methodology (manipulations, measurements, environment and context, etc.) and technologies used, for both replicability and enabling in-depth review. In addition, research providing novel system designs, algorithms, interface technologies, and computational methods supporting elements of situation management are encouraged. It is assumed that the submitted papers address the issues related to the general domain of situation management
Cognitive models of situation awareness, decision making, and situation management
Studies of concepts of situation, context, event, goal, intention, action, activity, behavior in interactive human-machine systems
Situation sensing, perception, comprehension, tracking, prediction and management
Collaborative decision support
Approaches to spatial and temporal reasoning, reasoning about goals, intentions and actions, and collective reasoning by teams of human and/or machine agents
Metrics and evaluation of performance of hybrid human-machine systems
Situation-dependent data integration
Modeling of situations – model acquisition, construction, adaptation and learning
Models of human-machine collaboration, hybrid and distributed cognition
Context modeling and discovering
Systems, platforms and tools for situation awareness and decision support
Call for Special Sessions
Interested attendees are encouraged to propose special sessions, which consist of five papers that provide a focused discussion of new or innovative topics. Each proposal must include the session title, description, and organizers. Special session papers will undergo the same review process. Special session papers must be clearly indicated when submitted with a copy sent to the designated special session organizer.
Call for Tutorials
Proposals are invited for half-day tutorials. Tutorials will be held on 11 June 2018. Tutorial proposal must include tutorial title, outline and description, and bio of the tutorial instructor. Tutorial should be submitted via EDAS as paper submissions with page limit of 1. For inquiries, please contact email@example.com.
Submitted papers should clearly indicate on the first page the submission type. Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an IEEE copyright release form and present their paper at the conference. The conference proceedings will be digitally published by IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society and will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library.
All paper submissions will be handled electronically in EDAS via the CogSIMA 2018 submission page. Authors should prepare a Portable Document Format (PDF) version of their full paper in 2-column style (main text in 10-point size) including figures and correct margins. Please use the stylesheet templates provided by IEEE to assure that your proposal is in line with our guidelines. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The conference proceedings will be electronically published in the IEEE CogSIMA Conference Proceedings and will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library. At least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 papers.
Oral/Poster Papers and Tutorials: March 18, 2018 (Extended Deadline)
Late Breaking Reports: April 2, 2018
