CogInfoCom is a new interdisciplinary field of science defined as follows:
Cognitive infocommunications (CogInfoCom) investigates the link between the research areas of infocommunications and cognitive sciences, as well as the various engineering applications which have emerged as the synergic combination of these sciences. The primary goal of CogInfoCom is to provide a systematic view of how cognitive processes can co-evolve with infocommunications devices so that the capabilities of the human brain may not only be extended through these devices, irrespective of geographical distance, but may also interact with the capabilities of any artificially cognitive system. This merging and extension of cognitive capabilities is targeted towards engineering applications in which artificial and/or natural cognitive systems are enabled to work together more effectively.

The conference is open for topic proposals that cover the definition of cognitive infocommunications. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Human-computer combo focusing on the complex mixture of human and artificial cognitive capabilities in human computer interaction processes, as in HCI, HMI, HRI
Infocommunication-related aspects of the cognitive sciences
Artificial cognitive capabilities of infocommunication systems
Socio-cognitive ICT including any approach that uses or influences collective knowledge
Embodied and enactive cognitive systems based on e.g. cognitive robotics and autonomous mental development
