This is based on the International Cognitive Modeling Conference
mailing list that I maintain.  I forward messages about twice a year.
(this is the third one for ICCM 2013, and I think last.)

The first announcement is driving this email -- tutorial program is up
for ICCM 2013 in Ottawa, and registration will open soon.  The rest
indicate new publication outlets, resources, and jobs in Cog Sci and in
cognitive modeling. I have also included an unusual item for the end.

If you would like to be removed, please just let me know.  I maintain
it by hand to keep it small.

I've added a conflict of interest note to each item.  I've become more
aware of CoI recently.  (As an aside, PSU's web site requires exact
dollar amounts for each stock owned and consulting fees, does yours?
PSU says most universities do, and I know of none that do. Happy to
correspond on this.)

1.  ICCM 2013,  Ottawa, 11-14 July 2013,

The conference will be held from 11 to 14 July 2013 in Ottawa, Canada
at Carleton Universitat.  The tutorials will be held 11 July 2013.
We hope to see you in Ottawa!

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.

The chairs are:
    Robert L. West <[log in to unmask]>
    Terrence C. Stewart ([log in to unmask])

2.  ICCM 2012 tutorials:  Soar/VPA/SDA/Quantum/C3trace,  Ottawa, 11 Jul 13

The Tutorials program at the International Conference on Cognitive
Modeling (ICCM) 2013 will be held on 11 July 2013. It will provide
conference participants with the opportunity to gain new insights,
knowledge, and skills from a broad range of areas in the field of
cognitive modeling.  It includes/co-exists with two tutorials from

The program includes:

  Quantum models of cognition and decision
  [Tutorial from the BRIMS Conference held jointly with ICCM]
  Busemeyer & Wang, Half day

  Modeling Human Performance in C3TRACE
  [Tutorial from the BRIMS Conference held jointly with ICCM]
  Warwick, Half day

  The Soar Cognitive Architecture
  John Laird, Full day

  How to analyze verbal protocols to support cognitive modeling
  Tenbrink, Half-day

  Measuring simulation-observation fit: An introduction to ordinal 
pattern analysis
  Throrngate, Half-day (1345-1700)

3.  BRIMS 2013 to be held concurrent with ICCM 2013

>From Dan Cassenti, the general chair of BRIMS

I am thrilled to announce that the BRiMS (Behavior Representation in
Modeling & Simulation) Conference will be held this year after
all. Originally, circumstances limiting financial support for BRiMS
caused its cancellation from a planned event in San Antonio this
March. After this cancellation, BRiMS executive leadership worked
diligently and gained the support of the International Conference on
Cognitive Modeling (ICCM) leadership to form a partnership. Their
gracious support allowed BRiMS to be co-located with ICCM 2013 (see

As a BRiMS supporter, I hope you will have the opportunity to join us
at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada from July 11 to July 14,
2013. Registration to BRiMS will be made through ICCM, so if you
register for ICCM, you will be entitled to attend BRiMS talks. The
presentation will be mostly mixed, except for serial BRiMS and ICCM
tracks on one day (please contact me directly if you wish to register
for only the serial BRiMS session, accommodations for this option will
not be available on site during the conferences). Please see our new
web site at for more information. If
you have questions or concerns, please contact me at
this email address or with the phone number below.

Hope you plan to attend!

Best Regards,
Dan Cassenti
