*2020 IEEE Conference on Cognitive and Computational Aspects of 
Situation Management (CogSIMA 2020)*
4-7 May 2020
University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada


/Sponsored by the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society/


*/Where Cognitive Science meets Computer Science/*

We are proud to announce that the IEEE Conference on Cognitive and 
Computational Aspects of Situation Management (CogSIMA) will celebrate 
its 10th anniversary in 2020!

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 

Continuing a decade of interdisciplinary cognitive situation management 
research, CogSIMA 2020 again invites scientists and practitioners from 
diverse backgrounds - computer science, artificial intelligence, human 
factors, cognitive science, robotics, modeling and simulation, systems 
engineering, and related areas - to present their cutting-edge findings 
and developments on cognitive situation management issues.

Application areas of interest include autonomous vehicles, command and 
control systems, disaster monitoring and recovery systems, human-robot 
teams, physical and cyber security situation awareness and cyber warfare 
systems, intelligent transportation systems, health care medical 
situation control systems, and many others.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Situation sensing, perception, comprehension, prediction and truth 
• "Big Data" analysis, situation learning and knowledge acquisition
• Social media processing for situation awareness
• Cognitive information fusion
• Integration of human and signal intelligence
• Multi-agent situation awareness, situation control and decision support
• (Team) decision making
• Models of collaboration and emergent behavior in cognitive multi-agent 
• Situation assessment methodology & applications, e.g.,
     • Situation recognition in autonomous vehicles
     • Situation assessment by Reinforcement Learning
• Biologically-inspired computational models of situation management
• Approaches to spatial and temporal reasoning, reasoning about goals, 
intentions and actions
• Metrics and evaluation of performance of hybrid human- machine systems
• Models of human-machine collaboration
• Ontology-based computing, context modeling and discovery
• Systems, platforms and tools for situation awareness, situation 
control and decision support
• System-level experiments and application-specific research


We invite two types of submissions, regular papers and poster 
presentations, which will undergo a competitive review process. All 
papers must present original and unpublished work that is not currently 
under review elsewhere. Each paper will be reviewed by at least three 
independent referees. Papers will be evaluated according to their 
significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and 
relevance to the conference.

Quantitative and/or qualitative methods and results are welcome, as well 
as hypotheses-driven or more open-ended exploratory work. Submissions 
must clearly outline the methodology (manipulations, measurements, 
environment and context, etc.) and technologies used, for both 
replicability and enabling in-depth review. In addition, research 
providing novel system designs, algorithms, interface technologies, and 
computational methods supporting elements of situation management are 
encouraged. Submitted papers should address issues related to the 
general domain of situation management.

*Regular Papers (5-8 pages)*: describe new results that advance the 
state-of-the-art. Each accepted paper will be allocated approximately 25 
minutes for the oral presentation during the conference.

*Poster Presentations (3-5 pages)*: describe work in progress. Each 
accepted poster will be presented in a 5 min. talk in the poster 
session, and will be included in the final conference proceedings 
submitted to the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library.

At least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the 
conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be 
presented by an author of that paper at the conference, unless the TPC 
grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the 
event who is qualified both to present and answer questions. All paper 
submissions will be handled electronically in EDAS. Authors should 
prepare a Portable Document Format (PDF) version of their paper using 
the stylesheet templates provided by IEEE.


*Regular Papers and Poster Papers: November 1, 2019*
Acceptance Notification: February 4, 2020
Camera Ready due: March 6, 2020


Accepted papers and poster presentations will be submitted for 
publication in the *IEEE Xplore® Digital Library*, which will be indexed 
by major indexing and web discovery services (such as Google Scholar, 
DBLP, Semantic Scholar etc.).
