AIC 2020 is the 8th international appointment of the International Workshop Series AIC on "Artificial Intelligence and Cognition". The AIC series started in 2013, stemming from the need of creating an international scientific forum for the discussion and the presentation of the theoretical and applied research developments in the field of cognitively inspired Artificial Intelligence.
In recent years, after a period of partial fragmentation of the research directions between the AI and Cognitive Science community, the area of cognitively inspired artificial systems has attracted a renewed attention both from academia and industry. Thus, the awareness about the need for additional research in this interdisciplinary field is gaining again widespread acceptance.
In this spirit, the AIC 2020 workshop aims at putting together researchers coming from different domains (e.g., artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science, philosophy, social sciences, etc.) working on the interdisciplinary field of cognitively inspired artificial systems. AIC 2020 will take place in Centre for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS) at Örebro University, Sweden, on September 2-4, 2020, joint with SweCog 2020, the 16th conference of the Swedish Cognitive Science Society.
