SCS welcomes high-quality research that goes beyond looking at social aspects of individual cognition or the properties of individuals in social systems and seeks to truly integrate these two layers. We particularly welcome interdisciplinary research, work that seeks to tackle areas that have been ignored before and novel approaches to relating the cognitive and the social. We are agnostic about the kind of approach or tools used, but favour approaches with an identifiable empirical or computational/formal content – both systems constructed for a particular goal in mind and models of observed or theoretical systems. However, the aim is to give new insights – into social science, cognitive science and Artificial Intelligence – merely formalising or implementing a system is not enough. We welcome contributions from a wide range of standpoints as long as this does not involve an effective reduction to only the individual or social levels.
Papers will undergo the normal review process and are selected on the basis of quality. However, when choices have to be made we will try to spread the accepted papers over the main themes of the workshop. Interesting ideas are more important in this respect than detailed results on fringe topics.
We encourage participants to submit a paper (15 pages max), describing their work on one or more of the topics mentioned above. All non-presenting participants will need to submit a one-page position statement which presents their view on socio-cognitive systems relative to (one of) the workshop topics.
All submissions must include the author’s name(s), affiliation, complete mailing address, phone number, fax number and email address. Please use the LNCS format for formatting your paper.
All accepted submissions and position statements will be published in the workshop proceedings.
Submissions should be submitted through the EasyChair system in PDF format to:
The deadline for receipt of submissions is 1st May 2018. Papers received after this date will not be reviewed.
