This conference contributing to the 2021 Summit of the International Society for the Study of Information (IS4SI) is about how data and data architecture is used and implemented in theory and practice in agent-based systems using cognitive architectures that are inspired in large part by the human and animal mind. All aspects of information theory and information architecture in a Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures (BICA) based system may be covered. This conference is about information theory from the BICA perspective.
Who is BICA
The Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures Society for Artificial Intelligence (AI), or BICA Society, is an international nonprofit organization based in the US. The purpose of the Society is to promote and facilitate the transdisciplinary study of biologically inspired cognitive architectures (BICA), aiming at the emergence of a unifying, generally accepted framework for the design, characterization, and implementation of human-level cognitive architectures.
Abstracts should be English, sufficiently extensive to describe the content of the presented work clearly with 300-500 words or 1-2 pages. All presentations should have their abstracts or papers for presentations submitted before the deadlines listed below, including any suggestions for special presentations or panels as early as possible and must be in clear English. All accepted abstracts will be published in the book of abstracts online before the summit. Short versions of papers (ca. 5 pages) will be published with the summit proceedings in a Special Edition of MDPI Proceedings after peer review with some additional publication options that will be announced.
TYPES OF PRESENTATION
All presentations fit into several categories, including topical, plenary presentations, or panels on related topics. Presentation times will be 20 minutes for topical presentations and 30 minutes for plenary presentations. Discussions may be up to 45 minutes but must be worked with and approved by the organizing committee.
IMPORTANT DATES/DEADLINES: (June 15 is the date to worry about)
Expression of the intent for a presentation with the submission of a short abstract (from 5 sentences to 1 page): June 15, 2021
Expression of the intent for a session or panel organization with a tentative title: June 15, 2021
Extended Abstracts of 300-500 words or 1-2 pages should be submitted by June 15, 2021, to be published in the summit proceedings in a special issue of Proceedings MDPI. High-quality submissions are eligible to go to Cognitive Systems Research Journal.
Short versions of papers up to ca. 5 pages can be submitted by September 30, 2021, for publication in the Special Issue of MDPI Proceedings.
