Description

The development and the cross fertilization between the aforementioned science and engineering disciplines have led to a whole range of extremely interesting new research areas known as cognitive informatics and natural intelligence. The International Journal of Cognitive Informatics and Natural Intelligence (IJCINI) encourages submissions that transcend disciplinary boundaries, and is devoted to rapid publication of high quality papers. The themes of IJCINI are natural intelligence, autonomic computing, and neuroinformatics. IJCINI is expected to provide the first forum and platform in the world for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students to investigate cognitive mechanisms and processes of human information processing, and to stimulate the transdisciplinary effort on cognitive informatics and natural intelligent research and engineering applications. IJCINI publishes regular papers, technical correspondences, case studies, letters to the editor, book reviews, conference reports, and special issues.

Mission and Scope

Cognitive Informatics (CI) is a cutting-edge and multidisciplinary research area that tackles the fundamental problems shared by modern informatics, computation, software engineering, AI, cybernetics, cognitive science, neuropsychology, medical science, systems science, philosophy, linguistics, economics, management science, and life sciences. CI is the transdisciplinary study into the internal information processing mechanisms and processes of the Natural Intelligence (NI) – human brains and minds – and their engineering applications in computing, ICT, and healthcare industries.

The development and the cross fertilization between the aforementioned science and engineering disciplines have led to a whole range of extremely interesting new research areas known as CI and NI. The International Journal of Cognitive Informatics and Natural Intelligence (IJCINI) encourages submissions that transcends disciplinary boundaries, and is devoted to rapid publication of high quality papers. The themes of IJCINI are natural intelligence, autonomic computing, and neuroinformatics. IJCINI is expected to provide the first forum and platform in the world for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students to investigate cognitive mechanisms and processes of human information processing, and to stimulate the transdisciplinary effort on cognitive informatics and natural intelligent research and engineering applications.

Reviews and Testimonials

Cognitive Informatics is a transdisciplinary research area. Thus, the most interesting aspect of IJCINI is the originality of many of the papers. They show us that the relation of, on one hand, neuroscience, psychology, and other biological disciplines and, on the other hand, computer science, is twofold. The close cooperation and synergy of these areas may help them to unveil new trends that would keep hidden otherwise.

– Fernando Rubio, University Complutense de Madrid, Spain

The International Journal of Cognitive Informatics and Natural Intelligence is an important resource for researchers to keep up with how the latest developments in a wide variety of disciplines impact the study of cognition and intelligence. The breadth of topics that it covers, as well as the wide range of expertise of tis contributing authors, indicate the interdisciplinary nature of cognitive informatics.

– Michael Dawson, University of Alberta, Canada

The field of cognitive informatics and natural intelligence sits at the crossroads between neuroscience, psychology, linguistics, and artifical intelligence. The multidisciplinary approach of IJCINI to the study of human information processing and engineering applications in computing has opened new vistas to the understanding of human behavior.

Editor(s)-in-Chief Biography

Yingxu Wang is professor of cognitive informatics, brain science, software science, and denotational mathematics, President of International Institute of Cognitive Informatics and Cognitive Computing (ICIC, www.ucalgary.ca). He is a Fellow of ICIC, a Fellow of WIF (UK), a P.Eng of Canada, and a Senior Member of IEEE and ACM. He was visiting professor (on sabbatical leave) at Oxford University (1995), Stanford University (2008), UC Berkeley (2008), and MIT (2012), respectively. He received a PhD in Computer Science from the Nottingham Trent University in 1998 and has been a full professor since 1994. He is the founder and steering committee chair of the annual IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Informatics and Cognitive Computing (ICCI*CC) since 2002. He is founding Editor-in-Chief of Int. Journal of Cognitive Informatics & Natural Intelligence, founding Editor-in-Chief of Int. Journal of Software Science & Computational Intelligence, Associate Editor of IEEE Trans. on SMC - Systems, and Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Advanced Mathematics & Applications.

Dr. Wang is the initiator of a few cutting-edge research fields such as cognitive informatics, denotational mathematics (concept algebra, process algebra, system algebra, semantic algebra, inference algebra, big data algebra, fuzzy truth algebra, and fuzzy probability algebra, visual semantic algebra, granular algebra), abstract intelligence (?I), mathematical models of the brain, cognitive computing, cognitive learning engines, cognitive knowledge base theory, and basic studies across contemporary disciplines of intelligence science, robotics, knowledge science, computer science, information science, brain science, system science, software science, data science, neuroinformatics, cognitive linguistics, and computational intelligence. He has published 400+ peer reviewed papers and 29 books in aforementioned transdisciplinary fields. He has presented 28 invited keynote speeches in international conferences. He has served as general chairs or program chairs for more than 20 international conferences. He is the recipient of dozens international awards on academic leadership, outstanding contributions, best papers, and teaching in the last three decades. He is the most popular scholar of top publications at University of Calgary in 2014 and 2015 according to RG worldwide stats.
