Digital & Cognitive Corporate Reality (DCR) is a scientific discipline that integrates Corporate Management and Business Science, Internet of Digital & Cognitive Reality and Cognitive Infocommunications leading to a higher conceptual level, adopting a holistic view. DCR includes all corners of co-evolved natural and artificial cognitive capabilities, spanning the entire range of individual and social levels as well as network aspects.
DCR research aims to explore interactions among the areas of digital corporate ecosystems (including processes, infrastructure, digital assets, organizational & human competencies, governance, regulatory and information security), and various approaches in Internet of Digital & Cognitive Reality (including ICT, AI & data science, 2D / 3D digital environments and network science), all within a conceptual framework of hybrid human, organizational and artificial cognitive capabilities. Within these areas, DCR targets the development of both new theoretical frameworks and practical solutions towards applications.

The topics include, but are not limited to:

 Cognitive aspects of corporate ecosystems
 Cognitive biases in digital corporations
 Artificial intelligence, machine/deep learning in corporations
 Human behaviour: Analysis and understanding
 Hybrid decision support with humans and machines
 Intelligent multi-agent solutions
 Business analytics, data science, big data
 Business processes management and reengineering
 Knowledge management, education and training
 Personalization and recommender systems
 Privacy, trust, interoperability, and security
 Risk governance and management
 Cognitive Infocommunications
 Human-Computer Interactions
 Internet of digital & cognitive realities in corporations
 Network science in a corporate context
 Corporate ecosystems
 Regulatory environment of DCR, policies and strategies
 Smart manufacturing
 Social innovation platforms

Track: Internet of Digital & Cognitive Realities
Track Organizers:

Digital Reality (DR) is a high-level integration of virtual reality (including augmented reality, virtual and digital simulations and twins), artificial intelligence and 2D digital environments which creates a highly contextual reality for humans in which previously disparate realms of human experience are brought together. DR encompasses not only industrial applications but also helps increase productivity in all corners of life (both physical and digital), thereby enabling the development of new social entities and structures, such as 3D digital universities, 3D businesses, 3D governance, 3D web-based digital entertainment, 3D collaborative sites and marketplaces. Beyond the concepts of the Internet of Things and Internet of Everything, the Internet of Digital & Cognitive Realities (IoD) already encompasses the networking of the widest range of digital & cognitive entities to be managed, transmitted and harmonized, focusing on a higher level of user accessibility, immersiveness and experience with the help of virtual reality and artificial intelligence. Given the holistic impact of IoD on society at large, papers on the social and legal aspects of IoD

The topics include, but are not limited to:

 Virtual, Augmented, Mixed and Digital Realities
 Cognitive aspects of Virtual Reality
 IoT and IoE
 Virtual and Digital Simulation Twins
 Artificial Intelligence
 Metaverse
 3D audio and sonification
 3D video and immersive experience
 Haptics and tactile modalities
 I/O and feedback devices
 Future Internet, Next Generation Internet
 Other…..

This track aims at gathering original works on communication, actions, perception and emotion from experimental and theoretical points of view. The ultimate goal of this research is to provide computational paradigms that may
implement culture-specific, trustful, credible, satisfactory and emotionally coloured human-machine interfaces and artificial agents.

The topics include, but are not limited to:

 Cross-cultural processing of social signals
 Linguistic and social interactional exchanges
 Social Robotics: analysis and applications
 Human behaviour: Analysis and understanding
 Linguistic sentiment analysis
 Changes in sentiment expressions
 Cognitive Economy
 Group behaviour, group cognition and cultural specificity
 Influence of context on perception, memory and decision making
 Cognitive systems for multimodal signal analysis
 Nonlinear processing of audio-video social signals
 Multimodal social signal processing
 Other…..
