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 AI and Cognition workshop 2013 (AIC 2013) 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.

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 approaches
  • 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


  • September 21st, 2013: Paper submission deadline
  • October 21st, 2013: Notification of acceptance
  • October, 31st, 2013: Early registration
  • November 4th, 2013: Final manuscripts due
  • December 3rd, 2013: 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 8-12 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.

At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the workshop to present the paper and should then register to the AI*IA conference.


Selected and updated papers of AIC 2013 will be published in a Special Issue of the Connection Science Journal ( which is ISI, SCOPUS and DBLP indexed.
