Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Research in cognitive mimetics combined with artificial intelligence techniques is fundamental to advancing the understanding of the human mind and the development of more advanced technologies. This can have a positive impact on people's lives by improving the efficiency of human–computer interactions and the ability of technology to solve complex problems.

The combination of different AI techniques makes it possible to create more complex and realistic systems that mimic human behaviour. Understanding these processes can have a significant impact in areas such as education, psychology, and technology. For example, multi-agent systems make it possible to simulate the interaction of several individuals and thus understand how social dynamics work. Machine learning allows models to be adjusted based on real data, improving the accuracy of imitations. Fuzzy logic allows modelling the uncertainty and subjectivity that characterise human behaviour. Expert systems offer an alternative to data-driven models to mimic human decision making in specific situations. Finally, the internet of things allows the integration of digital and physical systems to create more realistic environments for research.

In conclusion, research in cognitive mimetics combined with AI techniques is essential to improve the understanding of the human mind and human behaviour and to develop more advanced technologies. The combination of different techniques allows the creation of more complex and realistic models that simulate human behaviour, which can have a significant impact in areas such as education, psychology, and technology.

For this Special Issue, we invite researchers to submit original, high- quality studies on the cognitive mimetics systems domain, and we urge them to address its main subdisciplines, including:

  • Cognitive mimetics;
  • Simulating cognitive mimetics systems;
  • Simulation, modelling and analysis techniques;
  • Reasoning in complex systems;
  • Fuzzy logic systems;
  • Mathematical modelling;
  • Agent-based simulation;
  • Multi-agent systems (MAS);
  • Virtual agent organisations (VAO);
  • IoT and MAS;
  • CPS and MAS;
  • Ambient intelligence.

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. Systems 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 1600 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.
