Aptima Sponsors Best Applied Paper Award at 10th International Conference on Cognitive Modeling

Siegel-Wolf Award recognizes best applied research paper

Woburn, MA, August 30, 2010 – Aptima, Inc., a leader in human-centered engineering, was the sponsor of the Siegel-Wolf Award at the 10th International Conference on Cognitive Modeling (ICCM) held at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA, on August 5-8, 2010. The ICCM is the premier conference for research on computational models and computation-based theories of human behavior. This award, given for the best applied research paper, is named in recognition of Art Siegel and Jay Wolf, who worked on human performance models for more than 20 years.

This year’s winners were:

Task-Constrained Interleaving of Perceptual and Motor Processes in a Time-Critical Dual Task as Revealed Through Eye Tracking [Archived Link No Longer Available] – Anthony J. Hornof & Yunfeng Zhang

About The International Conference on Cognitive Modeling

ICCM is a forum for presenting, discussing, and evaluating the complete spectrum of cognitive modeling approaches, including connectionism, symbolic modeling, dynamical systems, Bayesian modeling, and cognitive architectures. ICCM includes basic and applied research, across a wide variety of domains, ranging from low-level perception and attention to higher-level problem-solving and learning. https://iccm2010.cs.drexel.edu/proceedings/index.html. [Archived Link No Longer Available]
