EXTENDING COMPUTATIONAL COGNITIVE MODELLING TO ISSUES OF MULTI-AGENT
INTERACTION (ECM_MAI 2007)
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

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
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.
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
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, ...).
