Paladyn. Journal of Behavioral Robotics
Versita, ISSN: 2080-9778

Dear Robotics Worldwide mailing list subscriber, 

I would like to kindly invite you to submit a manuscript to "Paladyn. Journal of Behavioral Robotics" – a new journal launched by Versita (http://www.versita.com).

Paladyn is a peer-reviewed, online only journal intended to serve as a premier source of knowledge and an exchange platform for all those interested or engaged in the emerging field of behavior-based robotics. The journal focuses on the original high-quality research results that cover such topics as: cognitive robotics, evolutionary robotics, robot swarms, robot control, learning and adaptation, human-robot interaction, artificial intelligence, bio-inspired machine vision and many more. Full Paladyn's scope, subject to constant changes, can be viewed at http://www.versita.com/science/engineering/paladyn/authors/aims_and_scope/ . 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 contributions from all over the world and we are ready to promote different viewpoints on robotics, regardless of the authors' research background, from robot engineers and computer scientists to physicists, biologists or psychologists.

Regarding the journal's organization, Paladyn will start publishing quarterly, with approximately ten papers per issue, depending on the manuscript inflow. The first issue is scheduled for March/April 2010. Paladyn is planned to offer free electronic access to the published articles in 2010 and be available through Springer's paid subscriptions afterwards. Paper submission is handled online via Editorial Manager platform available at http://www.editorialmanager.com/paladyn/ . The paper processing overview is given at http://www.versita.com/editool/em-review/ . The Editor-in-Chief of Paladyn is Prof. Raja Chatila, LAAS-CNRS, France. Our new publishing project is also supported by a professional editorial team and a number of Editorial Advisory Board members - all being worldwide-recognized experts in their disciplines. For full list of names, please refer to http://www.versita.com/science/engineering/paladyn/editors/ .

As an author of Paladyn you can benefit from:

-  fast and constructive peer review (initial feedback within 4 weeks after submission),
-  international range of the journal,
-  convenient, web-based paper submission system – Editorial Manager,
-  high-quality electronic publication technology based on Metapress platform,
