Symposium onNonconscious Intelligence:From Natural to Artificial
21st - 24th March 2001
The scientific program and schedule of events has now been finalized. Check it out!
This symposium will be devoted to interdisciplinary discussion of the processes of nonconscious information processing and implicit learning, in humans and in artificial intelligent agents.Ê AI systems with implicit learning capabilities and computational models of implicit learning will be presented, reflecting cognitive, connectionist and composite methodologies and paradigms. A major issue examined will be the degree of salience that is to be ascribed to the possession of implicit knowledge and the ability to acquire and employ it through nonconscious mechanisms exhibited by different classes of information-processing agents: humans, artificial agents and animals.
The role of nonconscious information processing in many central issues of artificial intelligence and the cognitive sciences will be explored, including but not limited to, representation and inference, problem-solving, perception, natural language understanding, learning and induction, creativity and scientific discovery. Theoretical contributions, computer simulations and reports of empirical studies are solicited from researchers in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, psychology, computer science and philosophy.
Call for Papers
The following are some areas of research from which we would like to attract both theoretical and empirical contributions. This is not meant to be an exclusive list, and submissions concerning any related topic are encouraged.
We invite extended abstracts of up to 4 pages in length describing original completed work, work in progress, or interesting problems to be solved. The selection will be fully refereed and it will be based on the originality and significance of the ideas as well as on technical aspects. Accepted extended abstracts should be followed by full papers up to 15 pages in length. At least one author of each accepted paper should attend the symposium and be prepared to present the work.
Submissions should be emailed to the symposium chairs:
in either postscript or pdf before 21 December 2000.
PLEASE NOTE: thesubmission deadline of full papers is strict as the convention starts very soon after this.
