The 2nd IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Computing (IEEE ICCC 2018) since 2017

Sponsored by the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TCSVC), IEEE Computer Society

Cognitive Computing is an emerging technical field that combines computing and cognitive science to develop computational approaches, algorithms, and systems that operate effectively like human partners in real-world settings. Service Computing incorporates science, technology, and business for transforming goods into services and for modernizing traditional services into digital services ecosystems, focusing on the application of computing technologies to create value from interactions among multiple stakeholders in real-world settings. Focusing on complex sensing-centered service systems, the IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Computing (ICCC 2018) aims to combine cognitive science with service computing by combining the technical aspects of human-like computing with the business aspects of value-creation through service innovation lifecycle.

The 2nd IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Computing (ICCC 2018), owned by IEEE since 2017, combines technical aspects of cognitive computing with service computing, focusing on all of cognition, computation, and business to understand and engineer effective value-creation. in more detail, ICCC aims to cover all acts or processes of knowing, perceiving, judging, reasoning, and associating based on computing platforms and algorithms (see history).

The 2018 IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Computing (ICCC 2018) focuses on the integration of cognitive computing with service computing for providing intelligence as a service. Technical topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

I. Cognitive Computing Technologies and Infrastructure

  • Cognitive Computing Fundamentals such as Mind, Language, Perception, Memory, Attention, Reasoning, Emotion, Prediction, and Problem Solving
  • Cognitive Computing Techniques using Artificial Intelligence, Pattern and Speech Recognition, and Natural Language Processing
  • Cognitive Approaches using Data Mining, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning Techniques
  • Consciousness and Awareness
  • Cognitive Data Analytics
  • Systems for Brain - Machine Interface
  • Collective Intelligence and Wisdom
  • Semantics for Conversation and Pragmatics
  • Service Science for Cognitive Computing

II. Cognitive Computing Applications

  • Deep Learning for Cognition
  • Brain Analysis for Cognition
  • Big Data Infrastructure for Cognition
  • Distributed Processing for Cognition
  • Consciousness and Awareness Framework
  • Cognitive Agents and Robots
  • Semantics for Conversation and Pragmatics
  • Service Technologies for Cognitive Computing
  • Cyber cognitive systems and services
  • Internet of Cognitive Things
  • Big Data Analytics for Cognition

III. Intelligence Innovation Lifecycle

  • Intelligence Innovation Lifecycle (Such as Intelligence Producing, Extracting, Understanding, Perceiving, Responding, Inferencing, Correlating, Propagating, Billing, Exchanging, Trading, Replicating, Destroying, and Repairing)
  • Cognitive Sensing (Sight, Hearing, Taste, Smell, and Touch)
  • Cognitive Data (Image, Sound, Text, Web Data, Sensor Data, and Machine Generated Data)
  • Cognitive Environment (Kinesthesia, Balance, Acceleration, and Internal Stimuli)

IEEE Policy

Review Policy

IEEE Policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one with access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of the special knowledge, which that access provides. Contents of abstracts submitted to conference program committees should be regarded as privileged as well, and handled in the same manner. The Conference Publications Chair shall ensure that referees adhere to this practice.

Organizers of IEEE conferences are expected to provide an appropriate forum for the oral presentation and discussion of all accepted papers. An author, in offering a paper for presentation at an IEEE conference, or accepting an invitation to present a paper, is expected to be present at the meeting to deliver the paper. In the event that circumstances unknown at the time of submission of a paper preclude its presentation by an author, the program chair should be informed on time, and appropriate substitute arrangements should be made. In some cases it may help reduce no-shows for the Conference to require advance registration together with the submission of the final manuscript.
