Call for papers

All researchers interested in the cognitive sciences are invited to submit their work to the conference. Submissions are accepted as short articles of either single papers or symposia (details below): the deadline for submission is set to September 25, 2016.

 

Submissions:

All articles must be submitted via Easychair at the following link:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aisc2016

All accepted articles will be published in the proceedings of the conference (with ISBN code).

 

Single papers:

Each contribution should not exceed 1500 words (including references). Articles, in English or Italian, must be formatted according to the following template:

http://www.aisc-net.org/home/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/MODELLO-PAPER.doc

The Scientific Committee will select accepted contributions, and decide their format of presentation (talk or poster session). Reviewing is blind to the identities of the authors. The first page, on which the paper body begins, should include the title, but not the names or affiliations of the authors and acknowledgments. When referring to one’s own work, use the third person, rather than the first person, e.g.  “(X and Y, 2007) in their study” rather than “In our previous study (2007)”. Try to avoid including any information in the body of the paper that would identify the authors or their institutions. Such information may be added to the final camera-ready version for publication in the proceedings.

Among accepted contributions, the Scientific Committee will select, after the conference, those considered of exceptional quality, to be short listed as candidates to the “Vittorio Girotto prize for the best AISC paper 2016”. Authors of selected contributions will then receive an invitation to submit an extended version of their work to the journal Sistemi Intelligenti (tentative deadline: April 15, 2017). The Editorial Board of Sistemi Intelligenti will determine the winning paper, and its decision will be final. The winning paper will be published with special mention on the journal, and the authors will receive a 300 euro book voucher from the publisher of the journal, Il Mulino. Also other finalist papers will be mentioned on the journal, and it is possible that they will be published there as well, if deemed of adequate scientific value by the Editorial Board.

 

Symposia:

Proposals for thematic symposia and panel discussion must be prepared according to the following guidelines:

  • the proposed topic must fall within the scope of cognitive sciences;
  • the best symposia present different perspectives, drawn from a wide range of disciplines, on a common issue;
  • a contributed symposium is allotted 100 minutes sufficient for four 25 minute talks including questions
  • each symposium proposal should be no longer than 1500 words (including references), written in English or Italian, and must include:
  • title of the symposium
  • names, affiliations and contact details of all organizers
  • a short introduction explaining the importance of the topic
  • title and a short abstract of each talk
  • names, affiliations and contact details of the speakers.

Symposium proposals will be evaluated by the Scientific Committee. The organizers of accepted symposia must register to the conference and ensure that all speakers of their symposium register as well.

 

Important dates:

Deadline for submission (papers & symposia): 25 September 2016
Notification of acceptance: 25 October 2016
Early registration: 1 November 2016
Camera-ready version of accepted contributions: 1 November 2015
Conference dates: 24-26 November 2016
Deadline for finalist papers, Vittorio Girotto prize for best paper AISC 2016: 15 April 2017 (by invitation only)
