# Conference Theme (full text can be found on the conference page

During the last decade many scholars at various international and
national conferences, in the books and papers have said and
written about serious distortions in the development of the
personality (first of all, in the system of moral values) and
national cultures caused by stormy development of information and
communication technologies (ICT) and globalization processes. The
conviction that it is not only necessary but also POSSIBLE to
make something constructive and significant for compensating
these distortions has underlain the elaboration of the
foundations of a new scientific discipline called Cognitonics
(see free of charge the selected papers on Cognitonics on the
Social Science Research Network (SSRN) at
http://ssrn.com/author=1871348, in the Special Issue on the Human
Being in the Digital World of Informatica. An International
Journal of Computing and Informatics (Slovenia), 2012, Vol. 36,
No. 2, pp. 119-130, www.informatica.si/vol36.htm#No2, and in the
Proceedings of the Second International Conference on Cognitonics
(Slovenia, Ljubljana, 10-11 October 2011) - a subconference of
the 14th International Multiconference Information Society, Jozef
Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia;
http://is.ijs.si/is/is2011/zborniki.asp?lang=eng; Proceedings A,
Section "Cognitonics"). Cognitonics, first of all, aims (a) at
explicating the distortions in the perception of the world caused
by the information society and globalization and (b) at coping
with these distortions in different fields by means of
elaborating systemic solutions for compensating the negative
implications of the kind for the personality and society, in
particular, for creating cognitive-cultural preconditions of the
harmonic development of the personality in the information
society and for ensuring the successful development of national
cultures and national languages. One of the principal objectives
of Cognitonics is also looking for positive correlations between
(a) following high moral norms, decency, honesty, well-developed
aesthetic feeling, culture peculiarities and (b) economic
development, in particular, looking for positive correlations
between establishing and following the codes of business conduct
by the companies and their economic success. The goal of the
conference is to combine the efforts of the scholars from
numerous scientific fields and educators in order to establish a
new synergy aimed at ensuring the harmonic, well-balanced
development of the personality, national cultures, and national
economics in the modern information society and, as a
consequence, to compensate a number of broadly observed negative
distortions (one of most severe distortions is commercialization
of moral values). From the standpoint of educational practice,
Cognitonics proposes an answer to the following question: what
precious ideas and images accumulated by the mankind, at what
age, and in what a way are to be inscribed into the conceptual
picture of the world of a person in order to harmonize his/her
intellectual and spiritually-coloured emotional development and
to contribute to the successful development of national cultures
and national economics. Cognitonics formulates a new, large-scale
goal for the software industry and Web science: to develop a new
generation of culture-oriented computer programs and online
courses (in the collaboration with educators, linguists, art
historians, psychologists) - the computer programs and online
courses intended for supporting and developing
positively-oriented creativity, cognitive-emotional sphere, the
appreciation of the roots of the national cultures, the awareness
of the integrity of the cultural space in the information
society, and for supporting and developing symbolic information
processing and linguistic skills, associative and reasoning
abilities of children and university students.
