     International Conference on

     Cognitive Informatics (ICCI)

The International Journal of

     Cognitive Informatics (IJCiNi)

 

Scope

Cognitive Informatics (CI) is a cutting-edge and multidisciplinary research area that tackles the fundamental problems shared by modern informatics, computation, software engineering, AI, cybernetics, cognitive science, neuropsychology, medical science, philosophy, linguistics, and life sciences. CI is the transdisciplinary study of cognitive and information sciences, which investigates into the internal information processing mechanisms and processes of the natural intelligence – human brains and minds – and their engineering applications in computing and ICT industries.

 

The development and the cross fertilization between the above science and engineering disciplines has led to a whole range of extremely interesting new research areas known as CI. Following the successful organization of the First and Second IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Informatics (ICCI’02 and ICCI'03), the theme of the Third IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Informatics (ICCI'04) is on "Autonomous Computing and Cognitive Processes." The objectives of ICCI'04 are to draw attention of researchers, practitioners and graduate students on the investigation of cognitive mechanisms and processes of human information processing, and to stimulate the international effort on cognitive informatics research and engineering applications. Original papers are invited from multidisciplinary perspectives on subject areas including, but not limited to, the following:

· Informatics · Cognitive Science · Cognitive Informatics (CI)
Nature of software Natural intelligence Autonomous computing
Quantum information processing Philosophy of mind Intellectual foundations of informatics
Bioinformatics Brain organization Information models of the brain
Quantum information processing Cognitive mechanism and process Informatics foundations of software engineering
Artificial intelligence Memory Expressive mathematics
Fuzzy logic Learning Internal information processing mechanisms
Machine learning Thinking Software agent systems
Neural networks Reasoning Ergonomics
Pattern recognition Problem solving Informatics laws of software
Agent technologies Cognitive linguistics Knowledge representation
Web-based information systems Neuropsychology Neural computation

* Selected papers from the ICCI'04 proceedings will be published in International Journal(s), such as IEEE-TSMCC and IJCiNi.

The City:  Victoria is the capital of British Columbia, Canada, located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island (map). The city of 300,000 is renowned for its natural beauty and mild climate, while the Pacific Ocean and majestic Olympic Mountains provide a spectacular backdrop. Unlike most other Canadian cities, winters are mild, and it hardly snows in Victoria.

 

Vancouver Island has regular ferry connections to Vancouver, and Victoria is served by an International Airport 30 minutes from the University.
