Photos from our Special Session @ IEEE SMC 2019 – Bari

The Special Session on Computational Models of Cognition and Situated Behavior in Cyber-Physical-Human Systems, organized in the context of the IEEE SMC 2019 Conference, has been held on Monday, 7th October,  at the Nicolaus Hotel in Bari, Italy.

Great presentations and discussions on hot topics of Cognitive Situation Management have characterized our Special Session, with the intervention of the six speakers and the interesting discussion with the audience.

A big thank you goes to all the participants in our Special Session.

Here some photos of the speakers and attendees of the Special Session Computational Models of Cognition and Situated Behavior in Cyber-Physical-Human Systems.

2020 IEEE Conference on Cognitive and Computational Aspects of Situation Management (CogSIMA)

4 -7 May 2020

University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Organized by the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society’s Technical Committee on Cognitive Situation Management, the CogSIMA conference series provides the premier venue for discussing complex heterogeneous dynamical systems – of interacting humans, machines, and computer agents – whose collective behavior depends on their cognitive capabilities to comprehend, explain, predict and act upon the surrounding operational situations. Adhering to its successful interdisciplinary tradition, CogSIMA 2020 will provide a stimulating forum for scientists and practitioners from diverse backgrounds to advance the field of cognitive situation management. We aim to bring together researchers from computer science, artificial intelligence, human factors, cognitive science, modeling and simulation, robotics, systems engineering, and related areas, to progress towards this ambitious goal. Application areas include autonomous vehicles, command and control systems, disaster monitoring and recovery systems, human-robot teams, physical and cyber security situation awareness and cyber warefare systems, intelligent transportation systems, health care medical situation control systems, and many others.
