Call for Papers

 CIFMA 2019

1st International Workshop on
Cognition: Interdisciplinary Foundations, Models and Applications

Oslo, Norway, 17 September 2019

Co-located with SEFM 2019

Submission link
Submission deadline: Thursday 13 June 2019
Notification: Friday 4 July 2019

Cognition encompasses many aspects of intellectual functions and
processes such as
attention, knowledge, memory, judgment, reasoning, problem solving,
decision making,
comprehension and production of language. Although it originated from
the field of
psychology, it goes beyond the individual human mind and behaviour, and involves
and affects the interaction with the environment in which humans act.
The increasing complexity of the environment with which humans
interact is no longer
restricted to their natural living environment and the other humans
populating it,
but includes a large technological support consisting of physical and
systems, virtual worlds and robots. This fact has expanded the scope of studying
cognition to a large number of disciplines well beyond psychology.
Cognitive processes are analysed from different perspectives within different
contexts, notably in the fields of linguistics, anesthesia,
neuroscience, psychiatry,
psychology, education, philosophy, anthropology, linguistics, biology,
logic, and computer science. These and other different approaches to
the analysis
of cognition are synthesised in the developing field of cognitive science, a
progressively autonomous academic discipline.

The objectives of this new international workshop are:

1. to bring together practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and
   research institutions who are interested in the foundations and
applications of
   cognition from the perspective of their areas of expertise and aim at a
   synergistic effort in integrating approaches from different areas;
2. to nurture cooperation among researchers from different areas and establish
   concrete collaborations;
3. to present formal methods to cognitive scientists as a general modelling and
   analysis approach, whose effectiveness goes well beyond its application to
   computer science and software engineering.


Authors are invited to submit, via Easychair, research contributions
or experience
reports. The submission link is:

All papers should be written in English and prepared using the specific LNCS
templates available at

There are six categories of submissions

RESEARCH PAPERS to present original research and the analysis,
interpretation and
validation of the research findings.

POSITION PAPERS to present innovative, arguable ideas, opinions or frameworks
which are likely to foster discussion at the workshop.

INTERDISCIPLINARY PROJECT PAPERS to describe a new interdisciplinary research
project, or the status of an ongoing project or the outcomes of a recently
completed project.

CASES STUDY PAPERS to report on case studies, preferably in a
real-world setting.

TOOL PAPERS to present a new tool, a new tool component or novel
extensions to an
existing tool.

TOOL DEMONSTRATION PAPERS to demonstrate the tool workflow(s) and
human interaction
aspects, and evaluate the overall role of the tool and impact to
cognitive science.

Contributions will be in the form of

* FULL PAPERS between 12 and 15 pages for submission (and between 12
and 16 pages
  for post-proceedings camera-ready).
* SHORT PAPERS between 6 and 8 pages for submission (and between 6 and 9 pages
  for post-proceedings camera-ready).
* PRESENTATIONS extended abstract up to 4 pages, which will be included in the
  pre-proceeding but not published in the post-proceedings.

"Short papers" and "Presentations" can discuss new ideas which are at an early
stage of development and which have not yet been thoroughly evaluated.

The program committee may reject papers that are outside these lengths on the
grounds of length alone.

Submitted papers will be refereed for quality, correctness, originality and
relevance. Notification and reviews will be communicated via email.
Accepted papers
(both "Full papers" and "Short papers") will be included in the
workshop programme and
will appear in the workshop pre-proceedings as well as in the LNCS
Pre-proceedings will be available online before the Workshop.


Contributions to the workshop cover the areas of education, research
and tecHnology,
either in general or with a focus on formal methods. Topics are
organised in possibly
overlapping categories and include, but are not restricted to:

* philosophy of cognition;
* human memory and memory processes;
* attention;
* perception, visual cognition and situated cognition;
* cognitive models and architectures;
* languages for cognitive science;
* social cognition.

* autonomous knowledge acquisition;
* motor babbling;
* learning by imitation;
* cognitive architectures for robotics.

* cognitive approaches to grammar;
* cognitive and conceptual semantics;
* conceptual organisation;
* cognitive phonology;
* dynamical models of language acquisition;
* computational models of metaphor and language acquisition.

* learning theories;
* cognitive development;
* problem solving;
* metacognition.

* biomedical signal and image processing;
* biomedical sensors and wearable systems;
* brain-computer interfaces and neural prostheses;
* brain mapping;
* neural and rehabilitation engineering.

LOGICS and their application to
* human-computer interaction;
* human behaviour;
* human reasoning and problem solving;
* visual reasoning;
* human-robot interaction;
* linguistics.

* integration of cognitive models and cognitive architectures within
the software
  design and verification process;
* cognitive aspects in cyber-physical systems and their verification;
* socio-technical systems;
* cognitive aspects in safety analysis and verification of
safety-critical systems;
* cognitive security;
* cognition hacking;
* formal frameworks for trust reasoning;
* formal methods for the modeling and analysis of robotic systems;
* formal methods for the modeling and analysis of human behaviour;
* formal methods for the modeling and analysis of human interaction
with computers
  and robots;
* application of formal methods to cognitive psychology.

Accepted regular and short papers will be published after the Workshop
by Springer
in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (,
which will collect contributions to some workshops co-located with SEFM 2019.
Condition for inclusion in the post-proceedings is that at least one of the
co-authors has presented the paper at the Workshop.

One or more journal special issue(s) with selected papers may be
planned, depending
