Full Title: Cognitive Computation Journal
Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Computational Linguistics
Call Deadline: 16-May-2011
Pointing at Boundaries: Integrating Computation and Cognition on Biological
Spurred by the advancement in synthetic biology (Gibson et al., 2010) at
the J. Craig Venter Research Institute the editors of Cognitive Computation
Journal (Springer Publishers) invite submissions to a special issue on
biological substrates as a computational diaphragm. This topic leads to
further research questions on computation and the bio-signals produced by
We anticipate submissions will contribute to the identification of a new
breed of technologies: 1.) bio-computing applications (synthetic biology);
2.) chemical/microbial induced biological configurations; 3.) enhancing
cognition and animal models; and 4.) neuroengineering sensory circuits and
clinical/biomedical research. This special issue will provide a forum for
interdisciplinary discussion that points towards the next step in cognition
and computing through the excitability of biological substrates.
Authors are invited to submit unpublished research, original position
papers, or literature reviews that address challenges unique to
bio-inspired computation. Relevant areas of investigation and
expertise include, but are not limited to:
- synthetic biology, systematic biology, soft-computing
- computation theory (membrane, natural, quantum, or evolutionary)
- linguistic or philosophic barriers to bio-computing
- bio-nanotechnology, computational biology, computational linguistics
- bio-optics: quorum sensing, bio-markers, molecular probes
- neurobiology, gene regulation, neural circuits
- neural signal transduction, neurotransmitters
- neuroimaging, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology
- mirror neurons, neuropsychology, theory of mind, simulation theory
- swarm intelligence, theory of intelligence, consciousness
Deadline: May 16, 2011
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $67,000. This money will go to help
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
