5th Conference on Cognitive Infocommunications CogInfoCom 2014 Vietri sul Mare, Italy 5-7 November, 2014
Welcome to CogInfoCom 2014
Scope:

CogInfoCom is a new interdisciplinary field of science defined as follows:
Cognitive infocommunications (CogInfoCom) investigates the link between the research areas of infocommunications and cognitive sciences, as well as the various engineering applications which have emerged as the synergic combination of these sciences. The primary goal of CogInfoCom is to provide a systematic view of how cognitive processes can co-evolve with infocommunications devices so that the capabilities of the human brain may not only be extended through these devices, irrespective of geographical distance, but may also interact with the capabilities of any artificially cognitive system. This merging and extension of cognitive capabilities is targeted towards engineering applications in which artificial and/or natural cognitive systems are enabled to work together more effectively.

Topics:

The conference is open for topic proposals that cover the definition of cognitive infocommunications.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Socio-cognitive ICT including any approach that uses or influences collective knowledge through sensing and actuation of Internet activities and streams (see Tracks 4 & 5). Application-oriented papers focusing on smartphone based approaches are highly welcome.
Embodied and enactive cognitive systems based on e.g. cognitive robotics and autonomous mental development
Cognitive biases in CogInfoCom: how biases in human perception and high-level reasoning can be put to use in CogInfoCom systems
Cognitive control: control theoretical solutions based on or targeting cognitive and other human body related processes. More information on cognitive control - e.g. on its scope and goals - can be found here
Industrial applications of CogInfoCom including e.g. production engineering, production management and relevant industrial applications
Ergonomics-based aspects of CogInfoCom
CogInfoCom channels based on e.g. sensory substitution, sensorimotor extension and high-level mapping between conceptual information and sensory data (for more details, cf. here)
Speechability e.g. all areas contributing to cognitive linguistics and speech technologies
Ethology-inspired engineering / Etho-robotics
Mathability: modeling and understanding mathematical capabilitiesof merged human-ICT systems (for more details, cf. here)
Cognitive informatics and media
Future Internet CogInfoCom aspects of e.g. Internet of Things and 3D Internet
Infocommunication-related aspects of the cognitive sciences
Intelligent vehicle and transportation systems based on e.g. enhanced driver awareness, advanced driver assistance systems
Interaction capabilities of CogInfoCom systems including e.g.
  • physiological interfaces including aspects of BCI, BAN, etc.
  • modality-oriented CogInfoCom including all aspects of human-and-"X" interaction
  • augmented content management and cognition based on e.g. 3D visualization, immersive augmented/virtual interaction, virtual avatars, etc.
