CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Advances in Cognitive Systems Journal

Advances in Cognitive Systems ( is
a new electronic journal, now in its second year, that publishes
contributions in the original spirit of AI, which aimed to explain the
mind in computational terms and reproduce the entire range of human
cognition in computational artifacts.

Advances in Cognitive Systems is associated with an annual conference
of the same name, the first instance of which took place last December.
The second volume of the journal served as the electronic proceedings
of that meeting. I am writing to tell about a new policy that alters the
relationship between journal and conference slightly:

- Authors are still welcome to submit papers for publication either
   to the electronic journal or to the annual conference.

- If a journal submission (16 pages) is received at least one month
   before the conference deadline and is accepted for publication,
   its authors will be invited to present a talk at the conference.

- If a long submission (16 pages) to the conference is accepted
   for presentation at the meeting, it may either be included in the
   annual proceedings or be invited to appear in the journal.

- If a short submission (8 pages) to the conference is accepted
   for presentation at the meeting, it will be included in the annual
   proceedings but not in the journal.

This policy should spread submissions across the year, giving
more flexibility to authors and reducing the load on reviewers while
letting more researchers present their results at the conference.

You can find more details at and
in the call for papers to the Annual Conference on Advances in Cognitive
Systems, which should be available shortly.
