APOLOGIES FOR CROSS-POSTING.

Dear Researcher,

we are very glad to inform you that the Special Issue “Emerging Spatial 
Competences: From Machine Perception to Sensorimotor Intelligence” 
(http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/09218890) has been 
published on the Robotics and Autonomous System Journal 
(http://www.journals.elsevier.com/robotics-and-autonomous-systems).

The aim of this special issue is to survey a state of the art of 
methodologies, concepts, algorithms and techniques that would serve as 
bricks on which to build and develop artificial agents with such a 
spatial competence; perceptual and cognitive understanding of space 
should emerge from sensorimotor exercise.

The Special Issue includes 13 papers (acceptance rate 40%) plus the 
editorial:
