In response to many requests, the deadline for regular & poster paper
submissions has been extended to _December 10, 2019_./


*2020 IEEE Conference on Cognitive and Computational Aspects of
Situation Management (CogSIMA 2020)*
4-7 May 2020
University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada


/Sponsored by the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society/


*/Where Cognitive Science meets Computer Science/*

We are proud to announce that the IEEE Conference on Cognitive and
Computational Aspects of Situation Management (CogSIMA) will celebrate
its 10th anniversary in 2020!

Organized by the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society's Technical
Committee on Cognitive Situation Management, the CogSIMA conference
series provides the premier venue for discussing complex heterogeneous
dynamical systems - of interacting humans, machines, and computer agents
- whose collective behavior depends on their cognitive capabilities to
comprehend, explain, predict and act upon the surrounding operational

Continuing a decade of interdisciplinary cognitive situation management
research, CogSIMA 2020 again invites scientists and practitioners from
diverse backgrounds - human factors, cognitive science, computer
science, artificial intelligence, modeling and simulation, robotics,
systems engineering, and related areas - to present their cutting-edge
findings and developments on cognitive situation management issues.

Application areas of interest include autonomous vehicles, command and
control systems, disaster monitoring and recovery systems, human-robot
teams, physical and cyber security situation awareness and cyber warfare
systems, intelligent transportation systems, health care medical
situation control systems, and many others.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Situation sensing, perception, comprehension, prediction and truth
• "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
• (Team) decision making
• Models of collaboration and emergent behavior in cognitive multi-agent
• Situation assessment methodology & applications, e.g.,
     • Situation recognition in autonomous vehicles
     • Situation assessment by 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


We invite two types of submissions, regular papers and poster
presentations, which will undergo a competitive review process. All
papers must present original and unpublished work that is not currently
under review elsewhere. Each paper will be reviewed by at least three
independent referees. Papers will be evaluated according to their
significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and
relevance to the conference.

Quantitative and/or qualitative methods and results are welcome, as well
as hypotheses-driven or more open-ended exploratory work. Submissions
must clearly outline the methodology (manipulations, measurements,
environment and context, etc.) and technologies used, for both
replicability and enabling in-depth review. In addition, research
providing novel system designs, algorithms, interface technologies, and
computational methods supporting elements of situation management are
encouraged. Submitted papers should address issues related to the
general domain of situation management.

*Regular Papers (5-8 pages)*: describe new results that advance the
state-of-the-art. Each accepted paper will be allocated approximately 25
minutes for the oral presentation during the conference.

*Poster Presentations (3-5 pages)*: describe work in progress. Each
accepted poster will be presented in a 5 min. talk in the poster
session, and will be included in the final conference proceedings
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 (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be
presented by an author of that paper at the conference, unless the TPC
grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the
event who is qualified both to present and answer questions. All paper
submissions will be handled electronically in EDAS. Authors should
prepare a Portable Document Format (PDF) version of their paper using
the stylesheet templates provided by IEEE.


*Regular Papers and Poster Papers: December 10, 2019*
Acceptance Notification: February 4, 2020
Camera Ready due: March 6, 2020


Accepted papers and poster presentations will be submitted for
publication in the *IEEE Xplore® Digital Library*, which will be indexed
by major indexing and web discovery services (such as Google Scholar,
DBLP, Semantic Scholar etc.).
