IEEE Transactions on Autonomous Mental Development (TAMD) will be renamed as IEEE Transactions on Cognitive and Developmental Systems (TCDS) with a view to broadening its scope yet keeping main thrust of TAMD in its core. The official scope of TCSD is:
This journal focuses on advances in the study of development and cognition in natural (humans, animals) and artificial (robots, agents) systems. It welcomes contributions from multiple related disciplines including cognitive systems, computational intelligence, cognitive robotics, developmental and epigenetic robotics, autonomous and evolutionary robotics, social structures, multi-agent and artificial life systems, computational neuroscience, and developmental psychology. Articles on theoretical, computational, application-oriented, and experimental studies as well as reviews in these areas are considered.
Transactions on Cognitive and Developmental Systems is financially sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, Robotics and Automation Society, and the Consumer Electronics Society, and it is technically co-sponsored by the Computer Society. With this new focused title and revised scope, TCDS is going to emerge as a premier publication covering various aspects of Cognitive Systems, Robotics, and Developmental Systems.
TCDS is financially co-sponsored by the Computational Intelligence Society (CIS), Robotics and Automation Society (RAS), and Consumer Electronics Society (CES), and technically co-sponsored by the Computer Society. Following the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by the co-sponsors, the Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of TCDS will be appointed for a period of two years beginning January 1, 2016. Following the guidelines in the MOU, IEEE CIS Executive Committee has formed an Adhoc Search Committee for recommending to the CIS President a list of potential candidates to serve as EIC of TCDS.
The Search Committee is seeking nominations /applications for this. The nominees/applicants should be dedicated volunteers with outstanding research profiles and extensive editorial experience. The nomination/application package should include complete CV along with separate description on each of the following items: Vision Statement; Editorial Experience; IEEE-CIS/RAS/CES Publication Experience; IEEE CIS/RAS/CES Volunteer Experience; Leadership Skills; Institutional Support; Networking with Community; Challenges ahead with the publication, if any, and how to deal with them; and Why the candidate considers himself/herself fit for this position.
The nomination/application package should be emailed as a single PDF at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 30, 2015.
