The research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been based, from an
historical standpoint, on a strong collaboration with Cognitive Science.
This collaboration, has produced - along the years - mutual benefits.  In
AI this partnership has driven to the realization of intelligent systems
based on plausible models of human cognition.
In turn, in cognitive science, this partnership allowed the development of
cognitive models and architectures providing greater understanding on human

In recent years, after a period of partial fragmentation of the research
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 is gaining widespread acceptance.

AIC 2015 is the third appointment of the workshop series AIC, 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.

As for the previous editions, the AIC 2015 workshop 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
- 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
- Computational Creativity

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 by the PC. We welcome the following types of contributions:

- Full research papers (up to 8-14 pages)
- Short research papers (up to 4-7 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 must register to the workshop and
attend the workshop to present the paper.
