The AIC 2023 is the 9th workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Cognition. The workshop series started in 2013. Aim of AIC workshop series is 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, Cognitive Artificial Systems and Computational Cognitive Science/Neuroscience.
The main motivation behind the AIC events lies in the fact that, from a historical standpoint (and due to the previous influences of the cybernetics in the study of natural and artificial systems), research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been based on a strong collaboration with Cognitive Science disciplines.
Many of the original founders of “AI” as a research discipline, indeed, aimed developing human-level AI systems by taking inspiration from the heuristics adopted by human (or animal) cognition. This goal is still pursued (with varied interpretations) by many researchers all around the world today and represents one of the main challenges for the AIC community.
The collaboration between AI and Cognitive Science, indeed, has produced – along the years – mutual benefits. In AI this partnership has driven to the realization of better intelligent systems. In turn, in cognitive science, this partnership allowed the development of cognitive models and architectures providing greater understanding on human thinking. In recent years, after a period of partial fragmentation of the research directions, the area of cognitively inspired artificial systems is progressively attracting a renewed attention both from academia and industry and the awareness about the need for additional research in this interdisciplinary field has gained widespread acceptance.
We invite every researcher interested in the overall goal and in the topics of interest (below) of the AIC workshop series to submit their scientific contribution to AIC.
AIC is a peer-reviewed scientific venue that particularly welcome papers raising challenging questions, innovative ideas and out of the box thinking and which, as a consequence, can help to promote interesting discussions at the workshop. The participation of younger researchers is encouraged as well.
Topics of interest for the AIC community include but are not limited to:
- Full research papers (8 to 14 pages)
- Short research papers (4 to 7 pages)
- Extended abstracts of recently published journal papers (1 to 2 pages)
- 16 June 2023
- 30 June 2023
- 14 July 2023
The AIC workshop will take place in the beautiful historic City of Bremen, in the Northwest of Germany. With a population of around 500,000, the city on the Weser River is a hub for economy, science, and culture.
The workshop will be held at the TAB Building and our Robotics Labs. All is locaed on campus of University of Bremen and within short walking distance to each other. SEE CAMPUS MAP
The AIC workshop will be held on 14 September and on 15 September 2023.
The AIC fee package is 250 EUR.

Travel and Visa
You can travel to Bremen by plane and train.
If traveling by plane, the nearest airport is City Airport Bremen. You can take Line 6 of the tram service BSAG, Bremer Straßenbahn AG, the local tram and bus service. The tram station is opposite the airport's entrance hall and goes directly from Bremen Airport (Bremen Flughafen) to Bremen University (Universität).
If traveling by train, you can also take Line 6 of the tram service as it stops at Central Station (Hauptbahnhof). Tickets can be purchased at automatic ticket machines that are operated by BSAG and located at the airport (exit), at Central Station, and on the trams. We recommend to buy a "7 Days Ticket" for 24,00 EUR that will be valid in Bremen-City (Zone 1) on seven consecutive days (no NightLine surcharge included).
If traveling by car, the venue of the AIR workshop is located directly at the A27.
