The journal of Spatial Cognition and Computation is a multidisciplinary journal based on the assumption that the critical issues pertaining to spatial cognition and computation lie at the intersection of a number of disciplines in particular cognitive psychology geography neuropsychology and artificial intelligence. Recent years have seen a growth in the desire of these communities to share insights and results. The aim of the journal is both to concentrate the presentation of research into spatial cognition and computation and to explicitly encourage an interdisciplinary dialogue. The journal encourages the submission of articles on any topic on spatial cognition and spatial computation. Due to the range of academic disciplines problems to be addressed by the research should be of a general interest and authors are encouraged to present their ideas in a manner that is accessible to the entire journal readership. Research articles empirical studies integrative reviews of the literature and shorter opinion pieces will be considered for publication. Proposals for single-topic issues will also be considered. Specific topics within the scope of the journal include: cognitive and computational models of spatial cognition; navigation environmental learning and cognitive mapping; cognitive development and representation of large scale space; neuropsychology and spatial cognition; common sense and qualitative models of space; robot navigation and wayfinding; models and applications of spatial and diagrammatic reasoning; spatial cognition and visual languages; cognitive theories of imagery and imaginal reasoning; integration of vision and natural language processing; representation and processing of spatial expressions; cross-linguistic issues in spatial language; sign language and spatial cognition; gestural analysis and multimodal interfaces; visualization and spatial cognition; navigation and orientation in virtual environments and hypermedia.
