17th IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Informatics & Cognitive Computing

(ICCI*CC 2018)


Cognitive Machine Learning, Brain-Inspired Systems and Cognitive Robotics


July 18-20, 2018

University of California, Irvine, USA




Cognitive Informatics (CI) is a transdisciplinary field that studies the internal information processing mechanisms of the brain, the underlying abstract intelligence (aI) theories and denotational mathematics, and their engineering applications in cognitive computing, computational intelligence, and cognitive systems. Cognitive Computing (CC) is a cutting-edge paradigm of intelligent computing methodologies and systems based on cognitive informatics, which implements computational intelligence by autonomous inferences and perceptions mimicking the mechanisms of the brain. CI and CC not only synergize theories of modern information science, computer science, communication theories, AI, cybernetics, computational intelligence, cognitive science, intelligence science, neuropsychology, brain science, systems science, software science, knowledge science, cognitive robots, cognitive linguistics, and life science, but also reveal exciting applications in cognitive computers, cognitive communications, computational intelligence, cognitive robots, cognitive systems, and the AI, IT, and software industries.  


The IEEE ICCI*CC series is a flagship conference of its field sponsored by IEEE Computer, Computational Intelligence, and SMC Societies. Following the first thirteen successful conferences on Cognitive Informatics and Cognitive Computing (ICCI’02 through ICCI*CC’17), the 18th IEEE Int’l Conference on Cognitive Informatics and Cognitive Computing (ICCI*CC’18) focuses on the theme of Cognitive Machine Learning, Brain-Inspired Systems and Cognitive Robotics. ICCICC’18 welcomes researchers, practitioners, and graduate students to join the international initiative on cognitive informatics and cognitive computing toward the investigation of cognitive mechanisms and processes of human information processing, and the development of the next generation of cognitive computers and cognitive communication systems.
