Международные конференции по когнитивному моделированию

The International Conference on Cognitive Modeling (ICCM) is the premier conference for research on computational models and computation-based theories of human behavior.
ICCM is a forum for presenting, discussing, and evaluating the complete spectrum of cognitive modeling approaches, including connectionism, symbolic modeling, dynamical systems, Bayesian modeling, and cognitive architectures.
ICCM includes basic and applied research, across a wide variety of domains, ranging from low-level perception and attention to higher-level problem-solving and learning.

Research topics include:
• cognitive modeling
• cognitive architectures
• agent architectures
• expert systems
• user modeling
• adaptive behaviour
• symbolic AI
• distributed representations
• neural spike coding
• semantic web

Международные конференции по по когнитивному моделированию
Международная конференция по когнитивному моделированию (ICCM) является ведущей конференцией для исследования вычислительных моделей и основанных на вычислениях теорий человеческого поведения. Конференция ICCM - это форум для представления, обсуждения и оценки полного спектра подходов когнитивного моделирования, в том числе коннекционизма, символического моделирования, динамических систем, Байесовского моделирования и когнитивных архитектур.
Конференция ICCM  включает в себя фундаментальные и прикладные исследования в самых различных областях, начиная от низкоуровнего восприятия и внимания до высокоуровнего решения задач и обучения. Также поощряются исследования, которые используют вычислительные модели для лучшего понимания данных нейровизуализации.
В ходе конференций проходят пленарные и секционные доклады, сообщения со стендовыми докладами, практикумы и семинары для исследователей и студентов.
Труды конференций публикуются на английском.

Периодичность: раз в год/раз в 2 года. Проводятся с 1996 года в различных странах мира.

While the 2001 meeting was called the 4th ICCM, in fact the first two meetings did not use the ICCM title.
The first meeting, in 1996, was called the European Workshop on Cognitive Modeling.
The second meeting, in 1998, was called the European Conference on Cognitive Modeling.
The third meeting, held at Groningen in The Netherlands in 2000, was the first to be called an International Conference on Cognitive Modeling.

Interactive Task Learning (full-day workshop)
John Laird – University of Michigan
Kevin Gluck – U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory
Invited Presentations:
Michael Beetz (Robotics; University of Bremen)
Ken Forbus (Artificial Intelligence; Northwestern University)
Advances in Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science, and Robotics are leading us to future autonomous systems that will have the cognitive and physical capabilities to perform a wide variety of tasks, with applications across science, health care, business, military, home, and entertainment. How will these robotic and agent systems learn the unanticipated and evolving complex tasks we want them to perform? Although many related areas of science and technology will play a role in answering this question, the focus of this workshop is on how cognitive modeling research can inform the quest for achieving interactive task learning – agents and robots acquiring new tasks through natural interactions with humans. What capabilities can we identify and model in humans that enable (and are potentially necessary for) interactive task learning, what are the most important relevant successes so far, and what are the most important research challenges that need to be addressed?

Computational Models and Simulation of Classical Conditioning (half-day tutorial)
Eduardo Alonso – School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering, City University London, UK
Esther Mondragon – Centre for Computational and Animal Learning Research Ltd., St Albans, UK
It is widely accepted that classical conditioning is at the basis of most learning phenomena and behavior and thus paramount that we understand well how its mechanisms have been modeled computationally.
This tutorial will focus on two influential implementations, namely Rescorla and Wagner’s model (RW) and Temporal Difference (TD, aka Reinforcement Learning). In the first hour we will present the fundamentals of classical conditioning and error-correction learning, and explain in more detail how these are instantiated in both trial-based (RW) and real-time (TD) representations. The next two hours will be dedicated to run simulations of the two models in specialized software, RW Simulator and TD Simulator respectively. The tutees will learn the basics of their functioning, how to input data (experimental designs, parameter values) and how to interpret output against a selected collection of experimental data as well as with regards to novel predictions.
Nengo, Neural Engineering, and Cognition (full-day tutorial)
Terry Stewart & Peter Blouw - University of Waterloo, Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience
This tutorial introduces the Neural Engineering Framework, a general-purpose method for implementing computational algorithms using realistic spiking neurons. It has been used to develop biologically realistic models of visual processing, motor control, planning, mental arithmetic, and analogy, as well as Spaun, the first large-scale brain simulation capable of performing multiple tasks. This tutorial covers the underlying theoretical framework while giving hands-on examples of building and running models using Nengo Simulator, our cross-platform open-source neural simulation software.
The newest version of Nengo has extensive support for running on different hardware such as GPUs, allowing for significantly larger neural models. These larger models allow for more complex cognitive models, including novel approaches to linguistic processing and complex rule following.

ACT-R  architecture (Christian Lebiere and Dieter Wallach)
This tutorial will cover the fundamentals of the ACT-R architecture. ACT-R is a cognitive architecture based on experimental results andtheoretical assumptions about the acquisition, organization and application of human knowledge. It is a fully implemented simulation system that has been applied to tasks ranging from simple reaction time to complex air traffic control.
See also ACT-R Architectures.

COGENT modeling environment (Richard Cooper)
COGENT is a graphical environment for the rapid construction, development and evaluation of (primarily symbolic) models of cognitive processes. Construction of a model in COGENT involves first "sketching" the functional components of the model (using a graphical editor for drawing box and arrow diagrams), and then fleshing out the individual components by setting parameters or specifying production-like rules. The environment includes a set of predefined components, structured data and rule editors, facilities for graphing and tabulating data, and mechanisms for specifying and running computational experiments.
For more details of the COGENT system see the COGENT web site, at http://cogent.psyc.bbk.ac.uk

COGNET modeling environment. Building and Applying Cognitive Models in Real-Time, Multi-tasking Domains (Wayne Zachary, CHI Systems Inc., Lower Gwynedd, PA, USA)
This tutorial introduces participants to COGNET, an integrated cognitive/behavioral modeling method and toolset designed to facilitate the process of applying cognitive models to problems in system design, system operation, and human user performance/training support. The COGNET system has a particular focus on modeling human behavior and cognition in domains characterized by real-time transactions and/or multi-tasking demands on attention (e.g., human-computer interaction, complex system operation).

ECCM-98 The 2nd European Conference on Cognitive Modelling, April 1-4, 1998, Nottingham, UK

The workshop was introduced to establish interdisciplinary co-operation in the domain of cognitive modeling. About 60 researchers from Europe and USA working in the fields of artifical intelligence, cognitive psychology, computer linguistics and philosophy of mind participated in the workshop.
The workshop integrated the 10th EuroSoar workshop.
The modeling methods presented covered general architectures (as SOAR and ACT) as well as other kinds of modeling approaches.
