- Fourth International Conference on Cognitive Modeling.
Computational modeling has emerged as a central, but complex
sometimes fractionated theme in research on cognition. ICCM
a worldwide forum for cognitive scientists who build such
computational cognitive models and test them against empirical
goal of ICCM-2001 is to bring researchers from diverse
backgrounds together to compare cognitive models, to evaluate
using human data, and to further the development, accumulation,
integration of cognitive theory. We expect to have researchers
wide variety of modeling approaches, including symbolic,
system, connectionist, Bayesian, dynamic systems, and various
approaches. We also expect to have work being presented
from a wide
variety of domains, ranging from low-level perception and
to higher-level problem-solving and learning.
features of ICCM-2001 include the Newell Award for best
paper, the Best Applied Research Award, a Doctoral Consortium,
Competitive Symposia. The ICCM Doctoral Consortium provides
opportunity for doctoral students to explore their dissertation
in a multi-approach workshop (the day before the conference)
the guidance of a panel of distinguished research faculty.
Competitive symposia are submitted symposia consisting of
3 to 6
participants and presenting multiple competitive models
related to a
given domain or phenomena.
research being presented at ICCM-2001 will appear in a conference
proceedings being published by Erlbaum. The proceedings
6-page extended descriptions for paper presentations and
extended abstracts for poster presentations.
conference chair is Wayne Gray (email@example.com),
and the local host
is Christian Schunn (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Sponsors of the conference
include the National Science
Foundation, the Office
Research, Air Force
Research Laboratory, Human Effectiveness Directorate,
CHI Systems, and
George Mason University.
