Celebrating the 10th anniversary conference!

We are proud to announce that the IEEE Conference on Cognitive and Computational Aspects of Situation Management (CogSIMA) will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2020!

Organized by the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society's Technical Committee on Cognitive Situation Management, the CogSIMA conference series provides the premier venue for discussing complex heterogeneous dynamical systems - of interacting humans, machines, and computer agents - whose collective behavior depends on their cognitive capabilities to comprehend, explain, predict and act upon the surrounding operational situations.

Adhering to its successful interdisciplinary tradition, CogSIMA 2020 will provide a stimulating forum for scientists and practitioners from diverse backgrounds to advance the field of cognitive situation management. We aim to bring together researchers from computer science, artificial intelligence, human factors, cognitive science, modeling and simulation, robotics, systems engineering, and related areas, to progress towards this ambitious goal.

Application areas include autonomous vehicles, command and control systems, disaster monitoring and recovery systems, human-robot teams, physical and cyber security situation awareness and cyber warfare systems, intelligent transportation systems, health care medical situation control systems, and many others.
