Physics societies unite in support of open access

IOP Publishing (IOPP) has launched a new, multidisciplinary, open access (OA) journal devoted to the design, development, and application of artificial neural networks and brain-inspired systems towards advancing scientific discovery and realizing emerging new computing technologies.

The scope and characteristics of Neuromorphic Computing and Engineering (NCE) have been designed in close consultation with the community so that it uniquely brings together all aspects of the field, serving a cross-disciplinary audience that will extend to physics, engineering, materials science, biology, neuroscience and computer science across academia and industry.

As a fully OA journal, research published in NCE will be universally accessible, ensuring maximum visibility and reach, and in the spirit of transparency and reproducibility, authors will be encouraged to share data and code where appropriate for the benefit of the research community.

Professor Giacomo Indiveri, who leads the Neuromorphic Cognitive Systems group at the Institute of Neuroinformatics of the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich, has been appointed editor-in-chief. NCE will also be guided by a diverse editorial board of leaders in the field, collectively representing the journal’s broad subject remit as they work closely with an in-house team to ensure editorial excellence and IOPP’s usual high standards of publishing service.

Professor Indiveri said, “Brain-inspired computation based on the design and application of artificial neural networks is a rapidly emerging area that holds great promise for next-generation, low-power pervasive computing technologies. The challenge of developing real-world “neuromorphic” systems today brings together researchers and industry extending across the sciences – Neuromorphic Computing and Engineering is a multidisciplinary journal timed to uniquely reflect this situation with a mission to unite the community and define the field for years to come.”

Dr Tim Smith, associate director at IOP Publishing, said, “Neuromorphic Computing and Engineering represents another high-profile addition to our expanding OA portfolio and one that will build upon IOP Publishing’s long-standing reputation in the applied sciences. Through the support of a prestigious editorial board, we look forward to developing the journal’s content and functionality to serve all aspects of a field that looks certain to make a significant contribution to science, engineering, and industry into the future.”

Neuromorphic Computing and Engineering is now open for submissions. All OA article publication charges are currently paid by IOP Publishing, and there will be no author fees for articles submitted before 2022. Full details about the scope and editorial requirements can be found on the journal homepage.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
