Dear Colleagues,

The first issue of *The International Journal of Synthetic Emotions*, has
been published and is now available on line:

You can file the table of contents here:

The *International Journal of Synthetic Emotions (IJSE)* covers the main
issues relevant to the generation, expression, and use of synthetic emotions
in agents, robots, systems, and devices.  Providing unique,
interdisciplinary research from across the globe, this journal covers a wide
range of topics such as emotion recognition, sociable robotics, and
emotion-based control systems useful to field practitioners, researchers,
and academics.  We are currently looking to publicise the journal, to
encourage subscription, and to solicit top-quality submissions.

Call for Papers:
We would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for
inclusion in this scholarly journal. The following describes the mission,
the coverage and the guidelines for submission to the IJSE.


The mission of the *International Journal of Synthetic Emotions (IJSE)* is
to provide a forum for the advancement of knowledge and methods necessary
for the creation of artificial devices with emotions. IJSE approaches the
field of synthetic emotions, offering a unique interdisciplinary platform
for all international researchers on this topic. The journal presents a new
common space of richest and best ideas about synthetic emotions. Also,
discussed is a thinking frame that enables the conceptual synergy and
symbiosis between computer scientists, cognitive scientists, robot and
synthetic agent designers, as well as psychologists, neuroscientists, and

Prospective authors should note that only original and previously
unpublished articles will be considered. Interested authors must consult the
journal’s guidelines for manuscript submissions at
http://www.igi-global.com/development/author_info/guide.asp prior to
submission. All article submissions will be forwarded to at least 3 members
of the Editorial Review Board of the journal for double-blind, peer review.
Final decision regarding acceptance/revision/rejection will be based on the
reviews received from the reviewers. All submissions must be forwarded
