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-

trier.de/db/conf/aic/index), 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

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 EasyChair:




Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings published

on-line by CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org), with ISSN.

AIC proceedings are DBLP indexed: http://dblp.uni-trier.de/db/conf/aic/index
