      in conjunction with ICAI'07, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (June 25-28, 2007)


      Call for Papers
      The fields of cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and the social
      sciences can together create a better understanding of cognition and social
      processes than they can independently of each other. Some efforts in social
      sciences, especially social simulations, have evolved an understanding of
      social processes in societies independently from the other two fields.
      However Sun (2006) among other has shown that there is relation between
      individual cognition and social processes. Can this connection be understood
      by exploring the relationship between computational cognitive modeling and
      social simulation? How is the cognition of a society different from
      individual cognition? In this session we will examine
      these questions and many more. We invite submissions of research that
      investigate any of the following topics: (1) the relation between individual
      and social cognition, (2) multi-agent models that are related to advances in
      individual cognition, (3) social simulations that utilize cognitive science
      or artificial intelligence techniques, (4) aspects of social cognition that
      require modeling, and (5) the integration of cognitive models of learning
      into multi-agent

      Submission of Papers
      Authors are invited to submit their draft paper (between 5 to 7 pages -
      single space, font size of 10 to 12) to Sule Yildirim (suley@...)
      or Bill Rand (wrand@...) before the deadline. E-mail
      submissions in MS document or PDF formats are preferable. All reasonable
      typesetting formats are acceptable. These are general guidelines, if you
      would like to submit in a different format please contact the coordinators.
      Papers must not have been previously published or current submitted for
      publication elsewhere. Upon acceptance authors will be asked to follow the
      IEEE style format in preparing their papers for publication (max. 7 pages).
      The first page of the submission should include:

      -Title of the paper
      -Name, affiliation, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number and fax
      number for each author
      -Name of the author who will present the paper should be indicated
      -A maximum of five keywords

      Session Format

      The session will begin with an overview of the topic by the coordinators,
      and the peer-reviewed papers will then be orally presented. If time permits
      a wrap-up discussion will take place at the end of the session.

      Important Dates
      Extended Submission deadline: 20 March, 2007.
      Notification of acceptance: 7 April, 2007.
      Camera-ready due: 27 April, 2007.
      Conference registration deadline: 27 April, 2007.

      Conference dates: June 25-28, 2007

      See ICAI'07 website for complete details.

      The conference proceedings will be published by CSREA Press (ISBN) in
      hardcopy. The proceedings will be available for distribution at the
      conference .

      Some accepted papers will also be considered for journal publication (soon
      after the conference). All conference proceedings published by CSREA Press
      are considered for inclusion in major database indexes that are designed to
      provide easy access to the current literature of the sciences (database
      examples: ISI Thomson Scientific, IEE INSPEC, DBLP, ...).
