Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to consider contributing to the 9th edition of 
the *IEEE Conference on Cognitive and Computational Aspects of Situation 
Management (CogSIMA)*:
Sponsored by the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society, *CogSIMA 
2019* will take place at the *Luxor Las Vegas*, Nevada, USA, *8-11 April 
Please find more information on program and venue under 
www.cogsima2019.org <http://www.cogsima2019.org/>, which provides 
further details on our scientific program (including tutorials, 
keynotes, oral paper sessions, poster trailers session) as well as the 
complimentary social program.

Adhering to its successful interdisciplinary tradition, CogSIMA 2019 
will provide a lively exchange forum for scientists and practitioners 
from diverse backgrounds to advance the field of *cognitive situation 
management*. We aim to bring together researchers from cognitive 
science, human factors, artificial intelligence, computer science, 
modeling and simulation, robotics, systems engineering, and related 
areas, to progress towards the ambitious goal: Engineering complex 
cognitive systems of interacting humans, machines, computer agents and 
networks that correctly understand and intelligently act upon their 
environment's situations.

Application areas include autonomous vehicles, health care medical 
situation control systems, human-robot teams, intelligent transportation 
systems, disaster monitoring and recovery systems, physical and cyber 
security situation awareness systems, command and control systems, and 
many others.

We would like to invite you to contribute to this endeavor and present 
your research at CogSIMA 2019!
Please note that *Full Papers* and *Poster Presentations* are *due 10 
December 2018*.
For further information on submission guidelines and author 
requirements, please see www.cogsima2019.org.
Accepted papers and poster presentations will be submitted for 
publication in the IEEE Xplore® digital library.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Cognitive and computational foundations of situation awareness, 
situation control, decision making, and belief management
- Metaphysical studies of concepts and modeling of situations, context, 
events, goals, intentions, actions, and, behavior
- Situation sensing, perception, comprehension, prediction and truth 
- Big Data analysis, (multi-modal) situation learning (e.g., from text, 
images, video) and situation knowledge acquisition
- Social media processing for situation awareness
- Cognitive information fusion
- Integration of human and signal intelligence
- Multi-agent situation awareness, situation control and decision support
- Models of collaboration and emergent behavior in cognitive multi-agent 
- Situation recognition in autonomous vehicles (e.g., UAVs, self-driving 
- Situation assessment in Reinforcement Learning
- Biologically-inspired computational models of situation management
- Approaches to spatial and temporal reasoning, reasoning about goals, 
intentions and actions
- Metrics and evaluation of performance of hybrid human-machine systems
- Models of human-machine collaboration, hybrid and distributed 
cognition, situation understanding of cognitive agents and virtual 
- Ontology-based computing
- Context modeling and discovery
- Systems, platforms and tools for situation awareness, situation 
control and decision support
- System-level experiments
- Application-specific research
