Call For Papers
Cognitive Computing is a highly interdisciplinary research topic studied in several fields including but not limited to neuroscience, psychology, biology, computer science, electronic engineering, ergonomics, information theory, physics, mathematics and statistics. It has been a very important area in which the SMC community has a lot of interests and been conducting active research. The SMC Society has a dedicated Technical Committee on Cognitive Computing, in order to promote research in this area and collaboration with researchers in other fields. Since cognitive computing looks at human cognitive processes, it plays a key role in all human-involved systems, thus has a lot of overlaps with cybernetics since the latter often involves human users in the whole process.

CYBCONF 2017 has a dedicated topic in Track 2 on Cognitive Systems, but cognitive computing research spans across almost all topics within all three tracks. This special session will cover research going beyond theoretical and foundational issues around Cognitive Systems, focusing mainly on practical applications of cognitive computing in emerging topics less studied in cybernetics, including but not limited to multimedia computing, image and video processing, information retrieval, cyber security and user privacy, and social computing.

By Cognitive Computing, we consider techniques covering all aspects of cognitive systems and processes including capturing, monitoring, modelling, simulating and evaluating cognitive elements and automated algorithms inspired by knowledge learned from such research especially on how humans behave and how automated algorithms can better serve humans.

We welcome submissions addressing research problems in the following (but not limited to these) topics:

    Applications of cognitive computing in image and video processing
    Applications of cognitive computing in image and video coding
    Applications of cognitive computing in biometrics
    Applications of cognitive computing in image and video retrieval
    Applications of cognitive computing in cyber security
    Applications of cognitive computing for protection of user privacy
    Applications of cognitive computing in social computing
    Applications of cognitive computing for better understanding of human behavior in different computer systems
    New approaches to facilitating application-oriented cognitive computing research e.g. eye-tracking and EEG analysis
    Application-specific or adaptive cognitive computing techniques
    Application-specific human-computer interface with key cognitive computing elements
