Cognitive processes, such as inference, categorization, and memory, are not
independent from their physical instantiations. Individuals’ choices,
perception, and actions emerge and are dynamically affected /enhanced by the
interaction between sensory‐motor systems and the inhabited environment
(that includes the organizational, cultural, and physical context). This
interplay brings up instantiations of cognitive behavioural systems.

In this context, we are pleased to announce a call for papers for a special
issue of the Cognitive Computation journal on “Cognitive Behavioural
Systems”. This call is open to all researchers involved in the field.

Submissions are invited in the following areas:

Human factors and behavioural patterns;

Interactive and unsupervised multimodal systems;

Analysis of verbal and nonverbal communication signals;

Cross modal analysis of audio and video;

Spontaneous face‐to‐face interaction;

Advanced acoustical and perceptual signal processing;

Audiovisual data encoding;

Fusion of visual and audio signals for recognition and synthesis;

Identification of human emotional states;

Analysis of gesture, speech and facial expressions;
