3rd Call for Papers

Cognitive Computation - Celebrating the legacy of the late Professor John G
Taylor

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 * DESCRIPTION

The scope of the special issue is to celebrate the work of the late
Professor John G Taylor. Professor Taylor began his career in 1956 as a
theoretical physicist and has contributed many seminal papers and books to
high energy physics, black holes, quantum gravity and string theory. He
held positions in leading Universities in the UK, USA and Europe in physics
and mathematics. He created the Centre for Neural Networks at King‘s
College, London, in 1990, and was its Director until his death. He was
appointed Emeritus  Professor of Mathematics of London University in 1996.
He was Guest Scientist at the Research Centre in Juelich,  Germany, 1996-8,
working on brain imaging and data analysis. He has acted as consultant in
Neural Networks to several companies. He is the Director of Research on
Global Bond products and Tactical Asset Allocation for a financial
investment company involved in time series prediction. He is presently
European Editor-in-Chief of the journal *Neural Networks *and was President
of the International Neural Network Society (1995) and the European Neural
Network Society (1993/4). Since 2009, he is founding Chair of the Advisory
Editorial Board for the  journal *Cognitive Computation*.



Prof. Taylor worked in the field of Neural Networks since 1969. He has
contributed ever since to all aspects of neural networks and cognitive
computation including their applications to finance and robotics.
