Dear Robotics Worldwide subscriber,

I am a Managing Editor of "Paladyn. Journal of Behavioral Robotics" (http://www.versita.com/science/engineering/paladyn/). Paladyn is a new initiative of Versita (www.versita.com), one of the leading science publishers in Central and Eastern Europe. As the very first issue of the journal is just to be launched, we would like to cordially invite you to submit your contributions.

Paladyn is a peer-reviewed, online only journal intended to serve as a premier source of knowledge and an exchange platform for all those who are engaged or interested in the emerging field of behavioral robotics. The journal focuses on the original high-quality research results that cover such topics as: cognitive robotics, evolutionary robotics, robot control, learning and adaptation, artificial intelligence, machine vision, affective robotics and many more. Full Paladyn's scope, subject to constant changes, can be viewed at

In general, we will welcome good manuscripts whenever they present novel behavior-based or nature-inspired concepts, designs or applications of robots and other autonomous and intellligent systems. We are open to the contributions
