[Apologies for multiple postings]

Hope everyone is doing well. We are accepting additional submissions
for the workshop. The new deadline is ***September 17, 2020***.

This workshop follows the logistic decision of the IJCAI main conference.

Should you have any questions, please forward them to Sejong (yoons at tcnj.edu

===== Revised CfP =====
We are pleased to announce the call for contributions for the inaugural
IJCAII 2020 Workshop on  Neuro-Cognitive Modeling of Humans and
Environments, which will be held in Yokohama, Japan on Monday, 13th of
July, 2020. The workshop is a half-day workshop that aims to initiate
multidisciplinary gathering of experts interested in the area of dynamic
human crowd motion and behavior, and their relationships to environmental

We are looking for two-page extended abstracts that can be presented in
poster and spotlight sessions. Please find the details of the submission
instructions below. Additional information (e.g., invited speakers) will be
available on our website (https://ncmhe.github.io/).

We are looking forward to seeing you @ IJCAI!

=== SUMMARY ===
Title: Neuro-Cognitive Modeling of Humans and Environments
When: January, 2020 (scheduled)
Where: Yokohama *or *Kyoto, Japan (***REMOTE PRESENTATION OPTION AVAILABLE*
What: ***2 page*** extended abstract in IJCAI format
How: Submit to CMT site (now accepting submissions) --
Deadline: ***September 17, 2020***

=== DETAILS ===
1. Background
Recent advances in AI help improve our understanding on dynamic human crowd
motion and behavior. These advances provide essential grounds for modeling
and simulating human crowds under various environmental conditions such as
architectural structures (e.g. buildings, stations, stadiums, museums,
airports). There is a growing recent interest in identifying the
relationship between human (crowd) behavior and the built environmental
structures, utilizing recent developments in AI and machine learning
techniques as well as incorporating findings from perceptual, cognitive

This inaugural IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 Workshop aims to initiate the
first-of-its-kind gathering of multidisciplinary experts interested in this
area. This multidisciplinary approach combines cognitive principles and
many different areas of machine learning to study the relationship between
human behavior and the spaces they inhabit. It will also provide a platform
for discussion on collecting appropriate data and challenges in the future

We are looking for submissions of position papers and work-in-progress
extended abstracts (2 pages) on the relevant topics, including but not
limited to:

- Identifying existing challenges in the modeling of humans and environments
- Identifying and analyzing the relationships between human (crowd) and
various environments
- Novel neuro-cognitive models for human (crowd) motion and behavior
- Deep learning-based models
- Reinforcement learning-based models
- Graph-based representation learning models
- Applications of neuro-cognitive models for human (crowd) and environment
- Datasets for studying human (crowd) and environment relationships

2. How to Submit
Papers must be written in English, and no longer than ***2 pages*** in
IJCAI-PRICAI format. Only the list of references may go beyond this page
limit. Optionally, you may submit supplementary materials (e.g. videos) up
to 20 MB.

The reviewing process will follow the double blind policy. *Position
papers, forwarding looking work (work yet to be done), and summaries of
recently published work* are all welcome.

The official template can be downloaded from:

Ths link to the submission CMT site is open:

Submission deadline: ***September 17, 2020***
Acceptance notification: September 24, 2020
Camera ready deadline: September 29, 2020
Workshop date: January, 2020 (scheduled)

4. Program Schedule
The inaugural event will be scheduled as a half-day workshop, with 1~2
invited talks and spotlight presentations followed by a poster session. The
details will be announced closer to the workshop date on the website:
https://ncmhe.github.io/ For each accepted paper, an author is expected to
register and attend the workshop to present the work.
