Twenty-Five Years of COSIT: A Brief and Tasty History (Invited Talk)

LIPIcs-COSIT-2019-20.pdf (0.3 MB)


In this talk, I offer a few thoughts in celebration of COSIT '14, said to be the 25th anniversary of the Conference on Spatial Information Theory. I reminisce about some of the many interesting and entertaining people who have participated in COSIT over the years, and wax nostalgic over many of the incredible memories it has engendered, from Pisa to L'Aquila, and now Regensburg. Many fascinating and truly interdisciplinary explorations have occurred, and continue to occur, at this international meeting of the minds and bodies and symbol systems. I specifically touch on three of the "curious concepts of COSIT" in my talk: cognitive maps, qualitative reasoning, and ontologies.
