Submission Guidelines

All papers must represent original and unpublished work that is not currently under review. Each paper will be reviewed by at least three independent referees. Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference. Two types of paper submissions will be accepted:

  • Oral presentation paper (4-7 pages): Papers that describe new results that advance the state-of-the-art
  • Poster presentation paper (3-5 pages): Papers that describe work in progress
Oral and poster papers should address at least one of the following topics: Science & Technology, Modeling & Architectures, or Application and Emerging Technology specific research and development.

Science & Technology

  • Theories of situation management, cognitive methods, or decision support in human-machine systems
  • Studies of concepts of situation, context, event, goal, intention, action, activity, behavior in the context of hybrid interactive human-machine systems
  • Situation perception, comprehension, tracking, prediction and management
  • Collaborative decision support
  • Approaches to spatial and temporal reasoning, reasoning about goals, intentions and actions, and collective reasoning by teams of human and/or machine agents
  • Metrics and evaluation of performance of hybrid human-machine systems

Mathematics, Modeling, and Architectures

  • Situation dependent data integration
  • Information fusion
  • Modeling of situations - model acquisition, construction, adaptation and learning
  • Models of human-machine collaboration, hybrid and distributed cognition
  • Computer architectures
  • System architectures

Applications and Emerging Technology

  • Systems, platforms and tools for situation awareness and decision support
  • System level experiments
  • Application specific basic and applied research


Submitted papers should clearly indicate on the first page the submission type (oral or poster). The Organizing Committee reserves the right to move accepted papers between the oral and poster sessions after consultation with the authors. Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an IEEE copyright release form and present their paper at the conference. All paper submissions will be handled electronically in EDAS via the CogSIMA 2016 submission page. Up to date information and submission links will be provided on our webpage as they come available. Authors should prepare a Portable Document Format (PDF) version of their full paper in 2-column style (main text in 10-point size) including figures and correct margins. Please use the style sheet templates provided by IEEE to assure that your submission is in line with our guidelines. For more information contact us at cogsima@gmail.com.


The conference proceedings will be digitally published by IEEE Communications Society and will be included into the IEEE Explore Digital Library. To be published in the IEEE CogSIMA 2016 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 papers. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE CogSIMA 2016 Conference Proceedings and in IEEE Xplore.
