The collaboration between Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence had
a strong impact for both the disciplines. In AI this partnership has
driven to the realization of intelligent systems based on plausible models
of human cognition. In turn, in cognitive science, the partnership allowed
the development of cognitive models and architectures (based on
information processing, on representations and their manipulation etc.),
providing greater understanding on human thinking.

The 2nd edition of the AI and Cognition workshop (AIC 2014) aims at putting
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.

We also particularly welcome papers raising challenging questions,
innovative ideas and out of the box thinking and which, as a consequence,
can help to promote interesting discussions at the workshop.

Participation of younger researchers and the submission of research
papers also at early stage of work is encouraged as well.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Knowledge Representation and Cognition (e.g. Neural Networks models,
Ontologies and representation of common sense 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
- Evaluation of cognitively driven AI systems compared with other AI
- Cognition and Semantic Web
- Methodological open questions on AI and Cognition
- Automated reasoning: deductive, probabilistic, diagnostic,
causal and analogical inference
- 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
- Evolutionary Computation
- Cognitively inspired Machine Learning
- Computational Theories of Learning
- Decision Support Systems
- Computational Creativity


- September 21st, 2014: Paper submission deadline
- October 21st, 2014: Notification of acceptance
- October, 31st, 2014: Early registration
- November 5th, 2014: Final manuscripts due
- November 26th-27th, 2014: Workshop date


All papers must present original and unpublished work that is not
currently under review. Papers will be evaluated according to their
significance, originality, technical content and relevance to the
workshop. We welcome the following types of contributions:

- Full research papers (up to 8-14 pages)
- Short research papers (up to 4-6 pages)
- Position statements (up to 2-4 pages)

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 (, with ISSN. The proceedings
will be indexed on DBLP.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the workshop and
attend the workshop to present the paper.


As for the previous edition of the workshop we are currently trying to
arrange a special issue
for selected papers in an indexed international Journal.
