The International Journal of Signs and Semiotic Systems (IJSSS) combines interdisciplinary approaches on theoretical, empirical, formal, and computational research that contributes to the design and synthesis of semiotic systems, including biological evidence and evolutionary and philosophical frameworks. This journal publishes original research on the design, analysis, and synthesis of semiotic processes in biological and artificial systems and encompasses technological applications on computational modeling of semiotic production, computing, interpretation, and communication. Articles included in this publication present comparative approaches to semiotic processes including evolutionary, synthetic and analytic perspectives.

The mission of the International Journal of Signs and Semiotic Systems (IJSSS) is to provide a forum for comparative, evolutionary, theoretical, and empirical perspectives on computational modeling of semiotic systems and processes, and to present formal and synthetic simulation, implementation, and realization of computer machines and robots involved in these systems and processes. This journal offers a collaborative approach to innovative research geared toward a deeper understanding of semiotic processes and an integrated vision of synthesis in artificial systems. As an integral reference for community researchers in the field, this publication explores recent developments in neurocognitive science, cognitive ethology, second order cybernetics, cognitive semantics, pragmatic linguistics, theoretical semiotics, biosemiotics, and evolutionary biology.
