Mission and Scope

The International Journal of Software Science and Computational Intelligence (IJSSCI) is a transdisciplinary, archived, and rigorously refereed journal that publishes and disseminates cutting-edge research findings and technological developments in the emerging fields of software science and computational intelligence, as well as their engineering applications. The latest developments in computer science, theoretical software engineering, cognitive science, cognitive informatics, and intelligence science, and the crystallization of accumulated knowledge by the fertilization of these areas, have led to the emergence of a transdisciplinary and convergence field known as software and intelligence sciences.

Software Science is a discipline of enquiries that studies, theoretical framework of software as instructive and behavioral information, which can be embodied and executed by generic computers in order to create expected system behaviors and machine intelligence. The discipline of software science studies the common objects in the abstract world such as software, information, data, concepts, knowledge, instructions, executable behaviors, and their processing by natural and machine intelligence. From this view, software engineering is the engineering discipline that applies software science theories and methodologies to efficiently, economically, and reliably organize and develop large-scale software systems.

Computational Intelligence is a human enquiry of both natural and machine intelligence at the reduction levels of biology, physiology, psychology, cognition, computation, logic, and philosophy from the bottom up. Intelligence science is naturally interdisciplinary in vertical and based on reductionism and is transdisciplinary in horizontal based on holism. Intelligence science studies theories and models of the brain at all levels, and the relationship between the concrete physiological brain and the abstract soft mind. Intelligence science is a new frontier with the fertilization of biology, psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, philosophy, information science, computer science, anthropology, and linguistics.

The transdisciplinary field between software science and computational intelligence brings two logically and interactively related disciplines together. This new field of human enquiry will be helpful to explain how natural intelligence is generated on the basis of fundamental biological and physiological structures; how intelligence

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.
