Fields of study: Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures

Journal BICA is a peer-reviewed open-access academic journal, owned by the Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures Society (BICA Society).

Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures
(BICA) is an emerging field aiming at the building of "artificial brain", "thinking machine", that is, general-purpose systems with intelligence comparable to that of the human mind.

The focus of the journal is on the integration of many research efforts in addressing the challenge of creating a real-life computational equivalent of the human mind. Therefore, the journal publishes on the multidisciplinary study of cognitive architectures found in vivo and in silico.
To help foster a wider understanding, at a computational level, of how natural intelligent systems develop their cognitive, metacognitive, and learning functions, the journal will promote the overarching goal of creating one unifying widespread framework for the computational modeling of biologically inspired cognitive architectures.

The scope includes (but is not limited to):
• Cognitive science, with a focus on higher cognitive functions and their cognitive architecture models: including autonomous cognition and metacognition, imagery, sensemaking, meta-learning, self-regulated learning, life-long learning and cognitive growth, "critical mass" of a learner, models of creativity, affects, emotions and feelings, emotional competence, social cognition, the self, human-like episodic memory, language perception, processing, production, acquisition, and development;
• Computer science and engineering, with a focus on human-like artificial intelligence: cognitive architectures, virtual and physical cognitive robotics, synthetic characters, bootstrapped and human-like learning, human-computer interface, vision, computational linguistics, intelligent tutoring systems;
• Neuroscience, with a focus on higher cognition and learning: system-level computational neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, models of the neural substrates of semantic and episodic memory and awareness, agency, emotions and feelings, theory of mind and social cognition, language, imagery, voluntary control, goal and value systems, spatial cognition, etc.

The new feature can make this journal preferable to other journals. It is its link to the innovative outreach activity called Videopanels (http://www.bicasociety.org/vp) started by the BICA Society in 2011.

Videopanels is an ongoing international seminar implemented as a multipoint videoconference. Many papers published in Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures will be each linked on the journal web site to the corresponding archived Videopanels session, in which authors of the paper will defend their view in open discussion with ad hoc panelists.
