Announcement: The International Journal of Synthetic Emotions 1(1)

Dear Colleagues,

The first issue of The International Journal of Synthetic Emotions, has been published and is now available on line:

You can file the table of contents here:,+Vol.+1,+Issue+1 

The International Journal of Synthetic Emotions (IJSE) covers the main issues relevant to the generation, expression, and use of synthetic emotions in agents, robots, systems, and devices.  Providing unique, interdisciplinary research from across the globe, this journal covers a wide range of topics such as emotion recognition, sociable robotics, and emotion-based control systems useful to field practitioners, researchers, and academics.  We are currently looking to publicise the journal, to encourage subscription, and to solicit top-quality submissions.

Call for Papers:
We would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal. The following describes the mission, the coverage and the guidelines for submission to the IJSE.

The mission of the International Journal of Synthetic Emotions (IJSE) is to provide a forum for the advancement of knowledge and methods necessary for the creation of artificial devices with emotions. IJSE approaches the field of synthetic emotions, offering a unique interdisciplinary platform for all international researchers on this topic. The journal presents a new common space of richest and best ideas about synthetic emotions. Also, discussed is a thinking frame that enables the conceptual synergy and symbiosis between computer scientists, cognitive scientists, robot and synthetic agent designers, as well as psychologists, neuroscientists, and philosophers.


Topics to be discussed in this journal include (but are not limited to) the following:

Affective computing
Cognition for ambient intelligence
Cognitive science
Diffusive emotional controls
Electronic art approaches to emotions
   Emotional architectures
Emotional computing
Emotional design
Emotional interfaces
   Emotional languages programming
Emotion-based control systems
Emotions recognition
Engineering approaches to emotions
Evolutionary approaches to the mind
