Cognitive Infocommunications (CogInfoCom) is a newly emerging research field that investigates the link between infocommunications and the cognitive sciences, with the goal of creating engineering systems in which artificial and natural cognitive systems can work together more effectively. In this paper, we describe the structure of CogInfoCom systems from an interaction perspective. Through the discussions in this paper, our goal is to further clarify the relationship between CogInfoCom and the various research areas that deal with behavioral and structural systems modeling. In order to demonstrate the theoretical aspects of the subject, we describe a pilot application which was developed during the EtoCom project.
