Call for Papers with Extended Deadline of July 1, 2011: Special
Journal Issue on Cognitive and Neural Aspects in Robotics with
Applications 2011 (CNAR 2011), Journal of Robotics

It would be appreciated if you could forward this call for papers to
anyone who might be interested in it.


It is our pleasure to announce a new call for papers for the second
special issue of Journal of Robotics in year 2011. The call for
papers on cognitive and neural sciences related to robotic systems
appeared to be a successful challenge.

Robotics has been widely applied for various fields such as automation
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.

Similarly to the previous call of CNAR, the main challenges of this
new call for the special issue are the 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 papers focused on special
and newest hardware and biocomputing implementations that enhance
cognitive capabilities in the field of robotics.

We invite authors to present 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 for
-- 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 applications

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 complete
manuscript through the journal manuscript tracking system at according to the following timetable:
