International Workshop Series

AIC - Artificial Intelligence and Cognition

AIC in Short

The AIC workshop series on Artificial Intelligence and Cognition (http://dblp.uni-trier.de/db/conf/aic/index"), started in 2013 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, Cognitive Artificial Systems and Computational Cognitive Science/Neuroscience.

The main motivation behind the AIC events lies in the fact that, from a historical standpoint (and due to the previous influences of the cybernetics in the study of natural and artificial systems), research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been based on a strong collaboration with Cognitive Science disciplines.

Many of the original founders of "AI" as a research discipline, indeed, aimed developing human-level AI systems by taking inspiration from the heuristics adopted by human (or animal) cognition. This goal is still pursued (with varied interpretations) by many researchers all around the world today and represents one of the main challenges for the AIC community.

The collaboration between AI and Cognitive Science, indeed, has produced - along the years - mutual benefits. In AI this partnership has driven to the realization of better intelligent systems. In turn, in cognitive science, this partnership allowed the development of cognitive models and architectures providing greater understanding on human thinking. 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 has gained widespread acceptance.

We invite every researcher interested in the overall goal and in the topics of interest (below) of the AIC workshop series to submit their scientific contribution to AIC.

AIC is a peer-reviewed scientific venue that 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. The participation of younger researchers is encouraged as well.

Topics of interest for the AIC community include but are not limited to:


List of the AIC Workshops and Proceedings (AIC papers are indexed in DBLP and Scopus)

List of the AIC Keynote Speakers and Invited Panelists

Special Issues and Dedicated Journal Sections

Community, Mailing List and Social
