Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas!

In its 9th year, the IEEE Conference on Cognitive and Computational Aspects of Situation Management (CogSIMA) is heading to the glamorous resort city in the desert: CogSIMA 2019 will take place at the Luxor Las Vegas, Nevada. We are pleased to announce that CogSIMA 2019 will be sponsored again by the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society.

The CogSIMA conference series provides an annual venue for presenting multi-disciplinary research on complex heterogeneous dynamical systems - of interacting humans, machines, computer agents and/or networks - whose individual and/or collective behavior depends on their situation awareness.

Examples of systems include command and control systems, disaster monitoring and recovery systems, human-robot teams, physical and cyber security situation awareness systems, intelligent transportation systems, health care medical situation control systems, and many others.

Common to these systems is the need to adequately perceive, reflect, act, and communicate according to the current situation and expected changes - both in the environment and within the systems themselves.

The CogSIMA conferences are aimed at researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government, with a wide variety of backgrounds and experience including computer science, human factors, cognitive science, modeling and simulation, robotics, and systems engineering.
