[CfP] ACM SAC 2017 Track on Cognitive Computing - Call for Paper

Mauro Dragoni
Dear Member of the Semantic Web mailing list,
please find below the call for paper for the Cognitive Computing track that will be presented at the next SAC 2017.
There some topics that are inline with the ones included in this mailing list.
Therefore, I hope that during the next month you will receive some inspiration about a contribution to submit.


==== Cognitive Computing Track @ The 32nd ACM Symposium on Applied Computing - ACM SAC 2017 - Call for Paper ====
Cognitive Computing Track website: https://saccoco.fbk.eu

Dates: April 3-7, 2017
Venue: Marrakech, Morocco
Hashtag: #SacCoCo2017

*** Aim & Scope ***
The SAC2017 special track on Cognitive Computing (https://saccoco.fbk.eu) aims to promote a forum for scientists, engineers and practitioners, in academia and industry, to share and discuss latest advances, breakthrough results,
and real­world experiences in the Cognitive Computing area. This is an interdisciplinary emerging research area, at the core of Artificial Intelligence, investigating the development of self­learning systems, that naturally interact with
humans in complex environments, and are capable to adapt to context and changes in language and meaning.
Original and unpublished papers dealing with all facets of the Cognitive Computing area ­­­ such as Natural Language Processing, Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Audio and Video Analysis, Computer­Human Interaction, Neuroscience and Cognition ­­­ are invited.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Cognitive Knowledge Acquisition
---- Frameworks for acquiring Cognitive Knowledge
---- Tools and Methodologies for Cognitive Knowledge acquisition
---- Natural Language Processing for Cognitive Knowledge acquisition
---- Sentiment Analysis and Opinion Mining
---- Linguistic Resources and Cognitive Knowledge Acquisition
---- Machine Learning techniques (e.g., Deep Learning) for Cognitive Knowledge acquisition
---- Acquisition from media other than text (e.g., audio, video, images)
---- Linked Data and Cognitive Knowledge Acquisition
---- Emerging approaches for Cognitive Knowledge acquisition (e.g., crowd­based approaches).
---- Principled evaluation of acquired Cognitive Knowledge
- Representing, Formalizing and Reasoning with Cognitive Knowledge
---- Ontologies for Cognitive Systems
---- Representation languages for Cognitive Knowledge
---- Reasoning about Cognitive Knowledge
- Development of Cognitive Systems
---- Architectures for Cognitive Systems
---- Scalability of Cognitive Systems
---- Complex Cognitive Systems
---- Fuzzy Cognitive Systems
- Applications
---- Real­world applications that exploit Cognitive Knowledge
---- Cognitive Systems for Big Data scenarios
---- Cognitive Techniques for Deep Learning
---- Cognitive Techniques for Persuasion and Recommender Systems
---- Cognitive Robotics
---- Cognitive Techniques for Information Retrieval
---- Deployment of Cognitive Systems in specific domains. For example:
------- Digital Humanities and Social Sciences
------- eGovernment and public administration
------- Life sciences, health and medicine
------- Social Media, News, and Data Streams

*** Paper Submission ***
Research papers and experience reports related to the above topics are solicited. Submissions must not have been published or be concurrently considered for publication elsewhere. Papers should be submitted in PDF with no more
than 6 pages using the ACM­SAC proceedings format via the SAC 2017 website. Authors' names and affiliations should be entered separately at the submission site and not appear in the submitted papers. Each submission will be reviewed in a DOUBLE­BLIND process according to the ACM­SAC Regulations. Student Research Competition submissions are welcome (see http://www.sigapp.org/conferences/sac/sac2017/src17.htm for details).

*** Submission sites: ***
(for SRC papers) https://www.softconf.com/h/sac­src2017/
Paper selection is based on the originality, technical contribution, presentation quality, and relevance to the Cognitive Computing Track. Some papers may be accepted as posters.

*** Important Dates ***
September 15, 2016: Regular Paper & SRC Abstract Submission Due
November 10, 2016: Author Notification
November 25, 2016: Camera­ready copies of accepted papers/SRC
December 10, 2016: Author Registration Due

*** Proceedings & Registration ***
The camera ready version of accepted papers is limited is limited to 6 pages with the option for up to 2 additional pages at cost (US$80 per page) and Posters are limited to 3 pages with the option for up to 1 additional page at cost
(US$80). Papers accepted for the Cognitive Computing track will be published by ACM both in the SAC 2017 proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.
Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper/poster in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the paper: This is a requirement for the paper/poster to be included in the
ACM/IEEE digital library. No­show of scheduled papers and posters will result in excluding them from the ACM/IEEE digital library.
Authors of selected papers of the Cognitive Computing track will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to an international journal.
