Special Issue "Cognitive Robotics & Control"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
Robotics and control are research and application domains that have been frequently engineered by the use of transdisciplinary approaches like cybernetics. In this sense, cognition is a particular concept of this approach, abstracted from the context of living organisms to that of artificial devices, about knowledge acquisition and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses. Hence, cognitive robotics and control refer to knowledge processing as much as knowledge generation from problem understanding, leading to special forms of architectures enabling systems to behave in an autonomous way.
The main aim of this Special Issue is to seek high-quality submissions that highlight emerging applications and address recent breakthroughs in the domain of cognitive robotics and control and related areas. Procedures, algorithms, architectures and implementations for reasoning, problem solving or decision making in the domain of robotics and control are elements under consideration. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Cognitive social/service robots
- Cognitive environments
- Cognition in human-computer interaction
- Knowledge and representation in cognitive architectures
- Autonomy in robotics and control
- Sensorimotor contingencies
- Action and perception cognitive coupling

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 papers will be 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. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1400 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.
