New Journal: Systems Biology

Systems Biology is a prestigious new peer-reviewed journal from the IEE that welcomes high-quality research papers, rapid communications and news from the exciting field of systems biology.

Systems biology involves modelling and simulating the complex dynamic interactions between genes, transcripts, proteins, metabolites and cells using integrated systems-based approaches. Encompassing proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics and functional genomics, systems biology uses computational and mathematical models to analyse and simulate networks, pathways and the spatial and temporal relationships that give rise to cause and effect in living systems. Such work is of great importance to a better understanding of disease mechanisms, pharmaceutical drug discovery and drug target validation.

Author benefits

Systems Biology will be indexed immediately in the IEE Inspec database and will appear in ISI and Medline/Pubmed. All papers will undergo rigorous and prompt review and high standards of production. The IEE offers unrivalled times to first decision and publication, with papers published online in advance of the printed issue. There are no page charges, and authors will receive 50 digital reprints, a free journal copy and the PDF file of their published paper.

Call for papers and submission information

The first issue of Systems Biology will appear in summer 2004 and contributions are now being solicited for the second issue. The editors welcome full research papers, survey and review papers, essay-style articles and rapid communications. For further information, please visit the homepage at


Studies of intra- and inter-cellular dynamics, using systems- and signal-oriented approaches. Papers that analyse genomic data in order to identify variables and basic relationships between them are considered if the results provide a basis for mathematical modelling and simulation of cellular dynamic.

New Journal: Journal of Unconventional Computing, Non-Classical Computation and Cellular Automata

The International Journal of Unconventional Computing offers the opportunity for rapid publication of theoretical and experimental results in non-classical computing and cellular automata.

Specific topics include but are not limited to:

  1. cellular automata (e.g. computational universality, self-organizing mechanics, cellular-automaton computation as alternative to differential equations, models of self-reproduction, discrete dynamics);
  2. physics of computation (e.g. thermodynamics of computation, reversible computing, conservative logic, quantum computing, computing with solitons and other localisations);
  3. chemical computing (e.g. implementation of logical functions in chemical systems, image processing and pattern recognition in reaction-diffusion chemical systems and networks of chemical reactors);
  4. bio-molecular computing (e.g. conformation based, information processing in molecular arrays, molecular memory);
  5. complexity (e.g. computational complexity of non-standard computer architectures; theory of amorphous computing; artificial chemistry);
  6. logics of unconventional computing (e.g. logical systems derived from space-time behaviour of natural systems; non-classical logics; logical reasoning in physical, chemical and biological systems);
  7. smart actuators (e.g. molecular machines incorporating information processing, intelligent arrays of actuators);
  8. novel hardware systems (e.g. cellular automata VLSIs, functional neural chips);
  9. mechanical computing (e.g., micromechanical encryption, computing in nanomachines, physical limits to mechanical computation).

Both theoretical and experimental contributions are invited.
