2024 IEEE Conference on Cognitive and Computational Aspects of Situation Management (CogSIMA)
7-10 May 2024 | McGill University, Montréal, Québec, Canada
Sponsored by the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society
Where Cognitive Science meets Computer Science
In its 14th year, the 2024 IEEE Conference on Cognitive and Computational Aspects of Situation Management (CogSIMA) is heading to French Canada, the city of Montréal.
CogSIMA 2024 will take place at the historical McGill University, Montréal, from May 7-10, 2024, sponsored by the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society (SMCS) and supported by the IEEE SMCS Technical Committees on Cognitive Situation Management and on Interactive and Wearable Computing and Devices.
The CogSIMA conference series provides an annual venue for presenting multi-disciplinary research on complex heterogeneous dynamical systems – of interacting humans, machines, computer agents and/or networks – whose individual and/or collective behavior depends on their situation awareness.
Examples of systems include command and control systems, disaster monitoring and recovery systems, human-robot teams, physical and cyber security situation awareness systems, intelligent transportation systems, health care medical situation control systems, and many others.
The theme of the conference will be "Human and Machines Together", reflecting values such as inclusion, trust and teaming while facing diversity (of information), desiring the transparency (of decisions) where each of the actors help manage complex situations: humans leveraging human intelligence to further advance (machine learning) algorithms (e.g. using human-in-the-loop) and computers providing decision aids by fast and intensive computations as well as providing their own computed decisions by algorithms/software systems.
The CogSIMA conferences are aimed at researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government, with a wide variety of backgrounds and experience including computer science, artificial intelligence, human factors, cognitive science, modeling and simulation, robotics, and systems engineering.
Accepted papers and poster presentations will be submitted for publication in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, which will be indexed by all major indexing and web discovery services (such as Google Scholar, Scopus, Web of Science, DBLP, Semantic Scholar etc.).
Please consult for further information and updates on our program, venue, submission guidelines and author requirements.
Topics of interest for CogSIMA include, but are not limited to:
- Situation sensing, perception, comprehension, prediction and truth maintenance
- “Big Data” analysis, situation learning and 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 systems
- Situation recognition in autonomous vehicles
- 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
- Ontology-based computing, Context modeling and discovery
- Systems, platforms and tools for situation awareness, situation control and decision support
- System-level experiments and application-specific research
Two types of paper submissions will be accepted:
- Regular Papers (5-8 pages) that describe new results that advance the state-of-the-art
- Poster Papers (3-5 pages) that describe preliminary work
All paper submissions will be handled electronically by EDAS. Authors should prepare a Portable Document Format (PDF) version of their full paper in 2-column style (main text in 10-point size). Please use the stylesheet templates provided by IEEE to assure that your submission is in line with the IEEE guidelines. The conference proceedings will be electronically published in the IEEE CogSIMA Conference Proceedings and will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library. At least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC/conference organizers grant permission for a virtual presentation or a substitute presenter. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper.
