==== Cognitive Computing Track @ The 33rd ACM Symposium on Applied
Computing - ACM SAC 2018 - Call for Paper ====
Cognitive Computing Track website:
ACM SAC 2018 website:

Dates: April 9-13, 2018
Venue: Pau, France

*** Aim & Scope ***
The SAC2018 special track on Cognitive Computing (
aims to promote a forum for scientists, engineers and practitioners, in
academia and industry, to share and discuss latest advances, breakthrough
results, and real-world experiences in the Cognitive Computing area. This
is an interdisciplinary emerging research area, at the core of Artificial
Intelligence, investigating the development of self-learning systems, that
naturally interact with humans in complex environments, and are capable to
adapt to context and changes in language and meaning.
Original and unpublished papers dealing with all facets of the Cognitive
Computing area --- such as Natural Language Processing, Knowledge
Representation and Reasoning, Audio and Video Analysis, Computer-Human
Interaction, Neuroscience and Cognition --- are invited.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Cognitive Knowledge Acquisition
---- Frameworks for acquiring Cognitive Knowledge
---- Tools and Methodologies for Cognitive Knowledge acquisition
---- Natural Language Processing for Cognitive Knowledge acquisition
---- Sentiment Analysis and Opinion Mining
---- Linguistic Resources and Cognitive Knowledge Acquisition
---- Machine Learning techniques (e.g., Deep Learning) for Cognitive
Knowledge acquisition
---- Acquisition from media other than text (e.g., audio, video, images)
---- Linked Data and Cognitive Knowledge Acquisition
---- Emerging approaches for Cognitive Knowledge acquisition (e.g.,
crowd­based approaches).
---- Principled evaluation of acquired Cognitive Knowledge
- Representing, Formalizing and Reasoning with Cognitive Knowledge
---- Ontologies for Cognitive Systems
---- Representation languages for Cognitive Knowledge
---- Reasoning about Cognitive Knowledge
- Development of Cognitive Systems
---- Architectures for Cognitive Systems
---- Scalability of Cognitive Systems
---- Complex Cognitive Systems
---- Fuzzy Cognitive Systems
- Applications
---- Real­world applications that exploit Cognitive Knowledge
---- Cognitive Systems for Big Data scenarios
---- Cognitive Techniques for Deep Learning
---- Cognitive Techniques for Persuasion and Recommender Systems
---- Cognitive Robotics
---- Cognitive Techniques for Information Retrieval
---- Deployment of Cognitive Systems in specific domains. For example:
------- Digital Humanities and Social Sciences
------- eGovernment and public administration
------- Life sciences, health and medicine
------- Social Media, News, and Data Streams

*** Paper Submission ***
Research papers and experience reports related to the above topics are
solicited. Submissions must not have been published or be concurrently
considered for publication elsewhere. Papers should be submitted in PDF
using the ACM-SAC proceedings format via the SAC 2018 website. Authors'
names and affiliations should be entered separately at the submission site
and not appear in the submitted papers. Each submission will be reviewed in
a DOUBLE-BLIND process according to the ACM-SAC Regulations. Student
Research Competition submissions are welcome (see for details).

Full papers are limited to 8 pages, in camera-ready format, included in the
registration fee. Authors have the option to include up to two (2)
extrapages at additional fee of US$80 per page.
Posters are limited to 3 pages, in camera-ready format, included in the
registration fee. Authors have the option to include only one (1) extra
page at additional fee of US$80.
SRC Abstracts are limited to 2 pages, in camera-ready format, included in
the registration fee. No extra pages allowed.

*** Submission sites: ***
(for regular papers)
(for SRC papers)
Paper selection is based on the originality, technical contribution,
presentation quality, and relevance to the Cognitive Computing Track. Some
papers may be accepted as posters.

Authors of selected papers of the Cognitive Computing track will be invited
to submit an extended version of their work to a forthcoming Special Issue
in Progress in Artificial Intelligence (Springer journal).

*** Important Dates ***
September 15, 2017: Regular Paper & SRC Abstract Submission Due - EXTENDED
November 10, 2017: Author Notification
November 25, 2017: Camera­ ready copies of accepted papers/SRC
