Call for Papers - Brazilian International Meeting of Cognitive
Science, EBICC 2009

(Cognitive Technologies: Interdisciplinarity and Convergence)

September 2-4, 2009, Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil


* Deadline for submissions: April 2, 2009

Why and how does the use of cognitive technologies and artifacts (the
objects we call 'mind tools') change cognition fundamentally? How
these objects affect, and feed back into, cognitive processes? What
can we learn about the evolution of mind by studying how it
externalises itself? How the design of new cognitive technologies can
benefit from these results ? How the many approaches and perspectives
should converge in order to be integrated to explain the distributed
an externalized nature of cognitive processes ? This conference is a
place to explore the theme of cognitive technologies and artifacts, as
well as the use of designed artifacts to maximize cognitive
activities. The conference is a cross-disciplinary forum which brings
together researchers and practitioners to discuss the nature and
future of extended cognitive processes modeling and design.

In professional and disciplinary terms, the Conference traverse a
broad sweep to construct a transdisciplinary dialogue which
encompasses the perspectives of: cognitive science, artificial
intelligence, artificial life, computational neuroscience, cognitive
anthropology, design studies, linguistics, cognitive semiotics,
cognitive aesthetics, arts, psychology, e-learning, neuroengineering,
synthetic neurobiology, philosophy of mind, philosophy of technology.

)  Topics of interest include among others:

•       augmented intelligence
•       human augmentation
•       cognitive prosthesis
•       cognitive neural prosthesis
•       synthetic neurobiology
•       neurotechnology
•       ubiquitous computing
•       human-machine interfaces/interaction
•       immersive spaces
•       distributed cognition
•       embodied, embedded, extended mind
•       cognitive niche and artifacts
•       modeling and mental tools
•       smart environment
•       semiotic landscape
•       technologies and evolution of cognition artifacts,
•       creativity and abduction
•       distributed cognizers and collaborative cognition
•       epistemological and methodological issues

Accepted papers will be made public in the website (abstracts only)
and published in the Proceedings of the EBICC 2009, on CD-ROM (full
papers). Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version
to be published in a tentative special issue of an international
journal to be announced.

) Submission Instructions

- Full Papers

Papers must be written in English and may have a length of up to 10
pages, including tables, figures, and references. Papers must conform
to the Springer LNCC/LNAI style. It is recommended that authors use
Springer-Verlag template files (see
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html, section "Proceedings
and Other Multi-author Volumes" for formatting instructions) to
minimize possible conflicts of paper length when preparing the camera

Papers should be formatted in PDF, and submitted electronically only,
through the EBICC2009 Conference Management System web site at
[http://ebicc2009.fee.unicamp.br] Reviewing for papers will be double
blind, i.e. blind to the identities of the authors and their
institutions and to the identities of the reviewer. Please, EXCLUDE
AUTHORS' NAMES AND INSTITUTIONS from the submitted manuscript, they
will be included in camera ready versions only.

- Panels

Authors should submit an electronic version of an extended abstract
(total word count: approximately 1000 words). The file should also
contain a 300 word abstract that will be used for the conference web
site/booklet. The submission process is the same as for the full
paper, except that instead a full paper, the authors should submit an
abstract in PDF.

- Virtual Presentations

For authors which for some reason will not be able to be physically
present at the conference site, we are opening the possibility of
accepting virtual presentations. This modality of presentation
comprises the same rules as for full papers. The only difference is
that virtual presenters should provide the conference organizers with
an electronic presentation of their papers (an AVI or MPEG file),
which will be projected to the audience during the time slot allocated
for the paper. If possible, we recommend virtual authors to be
available at Skype during their papers time-slot, so we can direct
questions from the audience, just after the virtual presentation. We
will be video-recording all the presentations, and they will be
available for all conference participants after the event.

Any other questions regarding papers submission may be directed to one
of the organizers.
