Call for Papers: Special Journal Issue on Cognitive and Neural
Aspects in Robotics with Applications 2012 (CNAR'12), Journal of


It is our pleasure to announce a new call for papers for the third
special issue on cognitive and neural aspects of robotics with
applications for the Journal of Robotics. The call for papers on
cognitive and neural sciences related to robotic systems was a
successful challenge.

Robotics has been widely applied for various fields such as
and other control and engineering systems. Recent developments of
humanoid and human-like robots are a milestone in the field of
robotics, and they can be a platform for breaking new ground of
robotics applications for human-friendly medical and welfare systems.
Cognitive and learning aspects for such robots are, however, still
underdeveloped compared to highly controlled mechanisms of recent
robotic systems.

Like the previous calls for papers of CNAR, the main challenges of
this new call for papers for the special issue are cognitive aspects
of robotics, especially the neural and fuzzy basis of human
intelligence and the fundamental model of human cognitive and motor
functions from the brain sciences point of view. We welcome research
papers focused on special and newest hardware and biocomputing
implementations that enhance cognitive capabilities in the field of

We invite authors to submit original research articles as well as
review articles that will cross-fertilize the fields of cognitive
sciences and robotics. Potential topics include, but are not limited
to, the following:

-- Cognitive aspects of robotics
-- Neural network and fuzzy basis for robotic intelligence
-- Current applications and future prospects of cognitive sciences
-- Human–robot perceptions and interactions
-- Biocomputing for cognitive computation for robotics
-- New algorithms of computational intelligence for robotics
-- New hardware implementations of cognitive algorithms in robotics
-- Robotics for assisting physical and mental disability
-- Cognitive algorithms in robotics to support biomedical

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's
author guidelines, which are located at
Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their
manuscript through the journal manuscript tracking system at according to the following timetable:
