The Steering Committee of IEEE

International Conference on

Cognitive Informatics (ICCI)

The International Journal of

Cognitive Informatics and Natural Intelligence (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, systems science, philosophy, linguistics, economics, management science, and life sciences. CI is the transdisciplinary study 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 aforementioned science and engineering disciplines have led to a whole range of extremely interesting new research areas known as CI. Following the first four successful conferences on Cognitive Informatics (ICCI’02 through ICCI’05), the 5th IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Informatics (ICCI’06) focuses on the theme of Natural Intelligence, Autonomic Computing and Neuroinformatics. The objectives of ICCI’06 are to draw attention of researchers, practitioners and graduate students to the investigation of cognitive mechanisms and processes of human information processing, and to stimulate the international effort on cognitive informatics research and engineering applications.
