Welcome to Montréal!

In its 14th year, the 2024 IEEE Conference on Cognitive and Computational Aspects of Situation Management (CogSIMA) is heading to French Canada, the city of Montréal.

CogSIMA 2024 will take place at the historical McGill University, Montréal from May 7-10, 2024, sponsored by the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society (SMCS) and supported by the IEEE SMCS Technical Committees on Cognitive Aspects in Situation Management and on Interactive and Wearable Computing and Devices.

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.

The theme of the conference will be "Human and Machines Together", reflecting values such as inclusion, trust and teaming while facing diversity (of information), desiring the transparency (of decisions) where each of the actors help manage complex situations: humans leveraging human intelligence to further advance (machine learning) algorithms (e.g. using human-in-the-loop) and computers providing decision aids by fast and intensive computations as well as providing their own computed decisions by algorithms/software systems.

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.
