Dear Colleagues: (with advance apologies for any cross-postings)

We are delighted to announce the publication of Volume 7, No.1 / Feb 2015
Issue, of Springer's Cognitive Computation journal - www.springer.com/12559

Important News: Increased Impact Factor & Six bi-monthly Journal Issues
from 2015!

As you will know, Cognitive Computation was selected for coverage in
Thomson Reuter’s products and services in 2011. Beginning with V.1 (1)
2009, this publication is now indexed and abstracted in: ♦ Science Citation
Index Expanded (also known as SciSearch®) ♦ Journal Citation
Reports/Science Edition ♦ Current Contents®/Engineering Computing and
Technology ♦ Neuroscience Citation Index®

Cognitive Computation received its first Impact Factor (IF) of 1.0 in 2011.

The IF for 2013/2014 increased to 1.1 (with a first 5 year IF of 1.387)
(Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports® 2013)

Quarterly to Bi-monthly Issues, from 2015!!

Due to continuously growing number of high quality submissions, the number
of Issues has increased from four (quarterly Issues) to six (bi-monthly
Issues) each year, starting Feb 2015!

The first six papers of the February 2015 Issue comprise a Special Issue on
"Neural Signal Processing", Guest Edited by: Jordi Sole´-Casals,
Francois-Benoit Vialatte, Justin Dauwels. The Guest Editorial titled:
"Alternative Techniques of Neural Signal Processing in Neuroengineering" is
available (for free download) here:

The 6 Special Issue papers are followed by 8 regular papers. The full
listing of 14 published articles (Table of Contents) for this inaugural
2015 Issue can be viewed here (and also at the end of this message,
followed by an overview of the previous Issues/Archive listings):

You may also be interested in the last Special Issue of 2014 (Vol. 6, No.4
/ Dec 2014) on "Modeling emotion, behaviour and context in socially
believable robots and ICT interfaces", Guest Edited by: Anna Esposito,
Leopoldina Fortunati, and Giuseppe Lugano. The Guest Editorial is available
(for free download) here:

listing of 24 articles can be found here:
<http://link.springer.com/journal/12559/6/2/page/1> This exciting Special
Issue was the outcome of a strategic trans-disciplinary Workshop organized
by EU COST (http://www.cost.eu/), on ‘‘The future concept and reality of
social robotics: challenges, perception and applications. Role of social
robotics in current and future society,’’ held in Brussels (Belgium).
