The Tenth Annual Conference on Advances in Cognitive Systems will take place from Saturday, November 19, to Tuesday, November 22, 2022. Our plans for the event have changed and it will now be a hybrid meeting to take place physically in at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia, and virtually via Zoom.

The conference brings together a diverse set of researchers who pursue the original goals of artificial intelligence. That is, the overarching theme of the conference is to explain cognition in computational terms and to reproduce a broad range of intelligent behaviors and human abilities in computational artifacts.

The conference welcomes many types of research, including demonstrations of new capabilities, empirical studies of implemented systems, and formal analyses of complex tasks. The term "cognitive" refers to any computational artifact that thinks or reasons, whether or not it works the same way as humans. Topics of interest include:

  • Conceptual Inference and Reasoning
  • Problem Solving, Planning, and Heuristic Search
  • Common Sense and Qualitative Modeling
  • Memory Storage and Retrieval
  • Structural Learning and Knowledge Capture
  • Natural Language Understanding and Generation
  • Discourse and Dialogue Processing
  • Vision, Audition, and High-level Perception
  • Mental Imagery and Iconic Processing
  • Cognitive Models and Architectures
  • Cognitive Robotics and Embodied Cognition
  • High-level Execution and Control
  • Multi-Tasking and Attention
  • Social Cognition and Interaction
  • Cognitive Aspects of Emotion and Personality
  • Metacognition and Meta-level Reasoning

We encourage participation from anyone who is interested in computational approaches to complex cognition, human-level intelligence, and related topics.


We invite researchers to submit papers for presentation at the conference. The deadline for submissions to the EasyChair site is Friday, September 2nd, 2022. Authors of papers accepted for oral presentation may be invited to publish an expanded version as an article in Advances in Cognitive Systems, an archival electronic journal associated with the conference. Details on the submission, review, and publication process can be found HERE, including the review form used for evaluation.
