Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Cognitive Robotics is currently an actively developing domain, aiming to construct autonomous robots capable of becoming aware of their body schema and physical abilities; mapping their environment (indoors and outdoors); discovering affordable actions; as well as interacting with humans in a socially acceptable manner, both physically and dialogically, thus enabling human–robot collaboration.
The aim of this Special Issue on "Design, Optimization, and Performance Analysis in Cognitive Robotics" is to collect and disseminate scientific articles addressing challenges currently encountered in Cognitive Robotics, which include but are not limited to the following topics:
- Knowledge representation in robots;
- Knowledge grounding;
- Navigation and mapping;
- Grasping, manipulating, and placing;
- Affordance discovery and tool use;
- Machine learning for robotics;
- Benchmarking robotic algorithms;
- Planning with dynamically constructed planning domains;
- Reasoning with dynamic goal management;
- Dialogue systems;
- Human–robot interaction; and
- Designing appropriate cognitive architectures that link all of these aspects.
We particularly invite contributions that survey important open problems in these domains in order to provide informed guidance to researchers.
We also invite submissions on formal (non-bio-inspired) approaches for solving the problem of the cognitive architecture design.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
