www.comco2019.com <http://comco2019.com/>

** An interdisciplinary networking event / scientific workshop **

We would like to draw your attention to an upcoming scientific community

A lot is known about the neural signals underlying basic sensorimotor
processes and also a fair bit about the cognitive processes
involved in reasoning, problem-solving, or language. However, explaining
how high-level cognition can arise from low-level
mechanisms is a long-standing open problem in Cognitive Science. Therefore,
this workshop tackles problems such as grammar
learning, structured representations, or the production of complex
behaviors with neural modeling, aiming to contribute to the
re-integration of Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence.

*COMCO 2019* brings together experts studying the mind from a computational
point of view to better understand human and
machine intelligence. Thus, if you are interested in the following or
related fields, this event is for you:

– Cognitive Science
– Artificial Intelligence
– Deep Learning
– Neuroscience
– Linguistics

This workshop will combine poster sessions and, invited speakers and
participants contributed talks in a networking and
ideas-exchanging event on the splendid setting of the Botanical Garden in

Invited and confirmed speakers:

– *Karl Friston*, University College London
– *Colin Phillips*, University of Maryland
– *Roger Levy*, Massachusets Institute of Technology
– *Terrence Stewart*, University of Waterloo
– *Will Monroe*, Standford University and Duolingo
– *Dieuwke Hupkes*, University of Amsterdam

We encourage participants to submit a 1-page (A4 format) abstract for
presenting their research projects at the poster session
and/or to give a 20 minute contributed talk among our invited speakers. For
that, please note the following deadlines:

– Abstract submission: September 1st

CfP for WS on Language Learning at ICDL Epirob

Dear Colleagues,

As part of the upcoming ICDL Epirob Conference in Oslo (Norway) we are inviting abstracts for our workshop on language learning.

Please find the Call for Papers in the following lines (apologies for multiple postings):

Call for Papers: 3rd Workshop on Language Learning

19th August 2019, Oslo, Norway

This workshop is part of the 2019 IEEE ICDL-EPIROB conference (ICDL-EPIROB 2019)

Important Dates

June 30th, 2019, Deadline for Abstract submission
Notification of acceptance: 1-2 days after submission

Workshop Topic

Language Learning

Children acquire language in interactions with caregivers and peers in a socio-cultural environment. When children start to talk, their visual perception, body movement, navigation, object manipulation is already reaching some level of competence. Together with developing auditory control, initial schemas for social interactions (games), communication arises gradually and embedded into the social-interactionist environment. Even though there are various efforts in developmental robotics to model communication, the emergence of symbolic communication is still an unsolved problem. We are lacking convincing theories and implementations that show how cooperation and interaction knowledge could emerge in long-term experiments with populations of robotic agents.

Workshop format – Invited Speakers

The workshop is planned as a full day workshop, allowing for three sessions of three talks each (20 minutes plus discussion each). There will be a total of 9 invited talks by senior researchers. Talks by senior researchers are followed by a poster session (at the end and during the first coffee break).

Measuring Creativity – A CogSci 2019 Workshop

The workshop “Measuring Creativity” is part of the CogSci 2019 – the 41st Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society, to be held in Montreal, Canada on Wednesday, July 24th – Saturday, July 27th, 2019 (Wednesday, July 24th is the Tutorials and Workshops day).

Links to the Measuring Creativity 2019 workshop <http://creacogcomp.com/MeasuringCreativity2019/measuringcreativity2019.html>, CogSci 2019 <https://cognitivesciencesociety.org/cogsci-2019/>, our CFP webpage <http://creacogcomp.com/MeasuringCreativity2019/cfp_measuringcreativity2019.html> are here.


Various methods exist for measuring creativity, most of them in the form of creativity tests, like the Remote Associates Test, the Alternative Uses Test, TTCT, the Wallach-Kogan tests, insight problems, etc.

However, the feasibility and dependability of various types of psychometric assessment and administration of measures, as pertaining to various creativity tasks, have recently been questioned and enriched. The thought and work on the measurement of creativity are witnessing a new revival.

Recently, new methods of computationally creating stimuli for greater measurement accuracy have been developed, inspired by artificial cognitive systems that solve creativity tests. Such computational psychometrics methods have already shown to provide designs with greater control and the computational resurrection of tests which were initially proposed theoretically.

This workshop will focus on building a red thread of discussion on the current state of creativity psychometrics, integrating topics on existing classic and novel, manual and computational methods of testing and measuring creativity. The following questions will be addressed:

What creativity measuring methods exist and what are their strengths and weaknesses?
Which creativity factors are measured by the existing creativity methods? Is there an overlap of measuring methods for different factors? Are they the factors for which no methods exist or current methods are not yet up to the task?
What is the suitability of existing current methods for empirical testing versus computational modelling?
How can comparability be ensured across creativity test item sets?
What creativity metrics and methods can be used in evaluating the computational modelling of creativity?
What is the impact of artificial cognitive systems and their evaluation on creativity metrics? Of computational creativity systems and their evaluation?
What are the new computational and automatized measures of creativity, and what is their role in the ecosystem of measures?
Subjective and objective measures of creativity.
The workshop will involve three elements:
Three invited speakers from different backgrounds (Cognitive Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Cognitive Systems – Computer Science) will present existing creativity measuring methods
Short presentations of papers and posters will be accepted on the topic.
The workshop will end with a panel discussion, focused on establishing future directions for methods and systems aimed at supporting creativity and problem-solving.

Measuring Creativity welcomes papers on one or more of the general topics of Cognitive and Computational methods, creative problem solving and computational creativity. Both theoretical, computationally applied and empirical papers will be accepted. We especially welcome papers which aim to bring together some of these topics.

CFP: Mental Representations in a Mechanical World, Bochum, 28.-29.11.2019

Date: 28.-29.11.2019
Venue: Beckmanns Hof, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany


The concept of representation is ubiquitous in cognitive science and in
the philosophy of mind. It seems to play two roles: on the one hand,
neural representationsare postulated by neuroscientists to explain
sub-personal phenomena such as the processing of visual information in
the brain. On the other hand, mental representations are taken to
explain person-level phenomena, such as imagination, or consciousness.
Mental representations are used to make sense of beliefs and other
propositional attitudes and posits of folk psychology.
Non-representationalists contend that postulating representations of any
sort is unnecessary or problematic. Especially the traditional objection
against representationalism, the causal impotence of representational
content, gets new force in the light of the new-mechanical approach to
explanation in life sciences. According to the new mechanists, to
explain a phenomenon is to show how it is produced by an underlying
mechanism. The challenge for representationalists is to explain how
representations can figure in these mechanisms and show that mental
representations have a place in a mechanical world.
One core question of this workshop is whether the status of neural and
mental representation is equally problematic. While sub-personal
phenomena seem to be less resistant to mechanistic explanation, many
personal-level mental phenomena seem to be “representation hungry”.
A second core question concerns the relationship between neural and
mental representations. It is often assumed that the former are needed
to account for the latter. However, naturalising neural representations,
and accounting for their explanatory utility in a mechanistic
neuroscience proves difficult. How intertwined are beliefs and desires
with neural representations? Do they only come together, or is a
conceptual repertoire including one but not the other a coherent
