# 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,
       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

        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.
