[visionlist] call for submission to special issue on cognitive neuroscience and neuroengineering from Journal of Neuroscience and Neuroengineering

Journal of Neuroscience and Neuroengineering (JNSNE) is an
international peer-reviewed journal that covers all aspects of
neuroscience and neuroengineering. The journal publishes original
full-length research papers, letters, tutorials and review papers in
all interdisciplinary disciplines that bridge the gaps between
neuroscience, neuroengineering, neurotechnology, neurobiology, brain
disorders and diseases, novel medicine, neurotoxicology, biomedical
engineering and nanotechnology.

The special issue “Bridging the Understanding of Mind and Brain with
Neuroengineering” aims to publish novel research which applies
engineering techniques to study or modulate the relationship between
brain and cognition, or studies which develop novel hardware/software
based on empirical findings in relationship between brain and
cognition. Potential topics for the special issue include (but not
limited to): applications of electroencephalograpy (EEG),
magnetoencephalography (MEG), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), near
infra-red spectroscopy (NIRS), transcranial magnetic stimulation
(TMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in studying
perception, attention, memory, language, emotion, motor control,
decision making, learning, nerual plasticity, and
neuro-rehabilitation; sensors, signal transmission and storage
architectures, and computatoinal algorithm developed for solving
practical issues or inspired by findings in cognitive neuroscience.

Special Issue on Human Behavior Analysis for Inducing Behavior Change

Submission Deadline: 15 September 2012
Notification of Final Acceptance: 20 January 2013
Publication: July–September 2013
Works in Progress Submission Deadline: 15 December 2012

New technology and algorithms are empowering computers with several
ways to analyze human behavior, allowing the systems to attribute
meaning to users’ attitudes, preferences, personality, and social
relationships. This has the potential to redefine the relationship
between the computer and the interacting human, moving the computer from
a passive observer to a socially active participant that can influence
the attitudes and behaviors of people in their everyday natural
environments. This special issue aims to see where this change is taking
us, as well as how computers can be used to change human behavior to
promote individual, organizational, and societal values.

The aim of this special issue is to explore the problems of modeling
and analyzing human behavior under its multiple facets (expression of
emotions, display of complex social and relational behaviors, etc.).
Particular attention will be placed on systems that aim to induce
behavioral change in their users. The guest editors also seek
contributions that leverage social media in the selection, improvement,
and delivery of behavior-inducing messages. They invite original and
high-quality submissions addressing all aspects of this field, as long
as the connection to the focus topic is clear and emphasized. Relevant
topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Systems that observe and promote health
Technologies that promote sustainable behavior
Human-computer interaction
Interaction design
Interactive and immersive games
Reality mining
Interactive marketing
Human-computer dialogue
Persuasive systems design
Art and creative applications
Educational technologies
Action and gesture recognition
Recognition of daily living activities and lifestyles
Spatiotemporal models
Behavior semantics
Social behavior analysis
Social signal processing
Affect and emotion recognition
Corpora for behavioral analysis

Submission Information

Submissions should be 4,000 to 6,000 words long and should follow the
magazine’s guidelines on style and presentation. All submissions will be
anonymously reviewed in accordance with normal practice for scientific

In addition to full-length submissions, IEEE Pervasive Computing also
invites work-in-progress submissions of 250 words or less (submit to
pervasive@computer.org). These will not be peer-reviewed but will be
reviewed by the Department Editor and, if accepted, edited by the staff
into a feature for the issue. The deadline for work-in-progress
submissions is 15 December 2012.
