*Special Session on "Neurocomputation and Cognition"*
2020 IEEE International Joint Conference on Neural Networks -  World
Congress on Computational Intelligence (IJCNN-WCCI)
July 19-24 2020, Glasgow, UK

*Important Dates:*
Paper submission: 15 January 2020
Notification of acceptance: 15 March 2020

*Aims and Scope:*
The field of neurocomputation is concerned with the possibility of
computation in computers by following the paradigm and analysis of
computation that occurs in neurons and the brain. In recent years this has
resulted in breakthroughs in pattern recognition, machine learning theory,
clustering, associative memory and fault tolerant computation.

Consequently, the precision resulting from the computational and
mathematical viewpoint has led to insights helping to clarify aspects of
one of the ultimate human research endeavors: understanding the manner in
which human thought emerges from the organization of the human brain.

A session on this topic was presented in Rio de Janeiro IJCNN 2018 and was
very successful.  Extended papers developed from this session have been
submitted to a special issue of the veteran journal Annals of Mathematics
and Artificial Intelligence and this issue is scheduled to appear early in

We will again look into the possibility of another special issue with an
established veteran journal.

The special session invites submissions in any of the following (and
related) areas:

- Neurocomputation techniques as related to human cognitive issues
- Neurocomputational Models of Embodied Natural Language Processing
- Understanding brain information processing underlying real-world tasks.
- Validation of cognitive models using machine learning methods
- Computational Biomarkers for Diseases
- Computational Biomarkers for Cognitive Activity
- Neurocomputational and Architectural Models of Creativity
- Use of Neurocomputation and Machine Learning Tools to identify
Physiological Features
- Biologically Inspired Neural Computing
- Analysis of Time Dependent Information in cognition


Under "Main research topic*" select “S51. Neurocomputation and Cognition”
