CFP: IEEE TNNLS special issue on "New Developments in Neural Network Structures for Signal Processing, Autonomous Decision, and Adaptive Control"

There has been continuously increasing interest in applying neural networks to identification and adaptive control of practical systems that are characterized by nonlinearity, uncertainty, communication constraints, and complexity. The past few years have witnessed a variety of new developments in neural-network-based approaches for behavior learning, information processing, autonomous decision, and system control. Biologically inspired neural network structures can significantly enhance the capabilities of information processing, control and computational performance. New discoveries in neurocognitive psychology, sociology, and elsewhere reveal new neurological learning structures with more powerful capabilities in complex problem solving and fast decision in dynamic environments.  The goal of the special issue is to consolidate recent new developments in neural network structures for signal processing, autonomous decision, and adaptive control with application to complex systems. It welcomes contributions from a wide range of research aspects relevant to the topic, including neural computing, adaptive control, cooperative control, autonomous decision systems, mathematical and computational models, neuropsychology decision and control, algorithms, simulation, applications and/or case studies.

SCOPE OF THE SPECIAL ISSUE

We invite original contributions related to new neural network structures and methods, adaptive neural network control, from theories, algorithms, modelling to experimental studies and applications. Topics include but are not limited to:
  • Bio-inspired neural network structures for signal processing
