Special Issue on "Higher-Level Cognition and Computation"

	-- Call for Papers -- DEADLINES EXTENDED --

Human higher-level cognition is a multi-faceted and complex area of thinking which includes the mental processes of reasoning, decision making, creativity, and learning among others. Logic, understood as a normative theory of thinking, has a widespread and pervasive effect on the foundations of cognitive science. However, human reasoning cannot be completely described by logical systems. Sources of explanations are incomplete knowledge, incorrect beliefs, or inconsistencies. Still, humans have an impressive ability to derive satisficing, acceptable conclusions. Generally, people employ both inductive and deductive reasoning to arrive at beliefs; but the same argument that is inductively strong or powerful may be deductively invalid. Therefore, a wide range of reasoning mechanisms has to be considered, such as analogical or defeasible reasoning.

The topics of interest for the special issue of the Künstliche Intelligenz journal, appearing in autumn 2015, include, but are not limited to:

* analogical reasoning
* common sense and defeasible reasoning
* deductive calculi for higher-level cognition
* inductive reasoning and cognition
* preferred mental models and their formalization
* probabilistic approaches of reasoning
