ICCM 2016

The International Conference on Cognitive Modeling will take place 4-6 August 2016 at Penn State, University Park, Pennsylvania.

All paper, poster, symposium, and tutorial submissions are due on 8 April 2016, 5pm EDST. They should be submitted via our online submission system at:


The International Conference on Cognitive Modeling (ICCM) is the premier conference for research on computational models and computation-based theories of human behavior. The goal of ICCM is to bring researchers together who are interested in using computational modeling to better understand human cognition. 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. Finally, we also welcome contributions that use computational models to
better understand neuro-imaging data.

There are three types of regular submissions:

Papers: refereed papers of up to 6 pages. If a submission is accepted to be published as a paper, the paper will be presented at the conference either as a talk or as a poster.

Posters: refereed poster abstracts of up to 2 pages. If accepted, the corresponding poster will be presented at the conference in a dedicated poster session.

Symposia: refereed symposia abstracts of up to 2 pages. If accepted, the conference committee will contact the authors to help organize and schedule the symposium.

Notification of acceptance by 6 May 2016.

The website has further details.


The day before the conference (3 Aug 16) will be devoted to tutorials on various cognitive modelling techniques and approaches. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for a tutorial, please see the tutorial page for more information.

Tutorial proposals will be evaluated by the organising committee on the basis of their estimated benefit for prospective participants and on their fit within the tutorials program as a whole. If you are
interested in organising a tutorial, please send us an email at frank.ritter(at)psu.edu by 8 Apr 2016 with the following information:

  • – a 150 word description of the tutorial
  • – duration (half-day or full-day)
  • – who the tutors will be
  • – any pre-requisites that participants need to follow the tutorial

We will notify you of acceptance or rejection by 1 May 2016.
