Professor DeLiang Wang Assumes Leadership of Unique Journal on Neural Networks and Related Approaches to Computational Intelligence

NEW YORK, December 23, 2010 - Elsevier, a world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical
information products and solutions, is pleased to announce that Professor
DeLiang Wang of The Ohio State University has accepted the position of
Co-Editor-in-Chief of Neural Networks (www.elsevier.com/locate/neunet
). He succeeds the journal's founding editor Professor Stephen Grossberg of
Boston University on January 1, 2011.

DeLiang Wang, who holds a Ph.D. from the University of Southern
, is a professor in the department of computer science and
engineering at The Ohio State University. His research interests include
machine perception and neurodynamics. He has published numerous papers in
leading journals and conferences of the field. His paper: "The time dimension
for scene analysis" received the 2005 Outstanding Paper Award of IEEE
Transactions on Neural Networks. He received the U.S. National Science
Foundation Research Initiation Award in 1992 and the U.S. Office of Naval
Research Young Investigator Award in 1996. In 2008, he received the Helmholtz
Award from the International Neural Network Society (INNS). He also served as
INNS President in 2006. He is an IEEE Fellow, and an IEEE Distinguished

Neural Networks is unique in its range and provides a forum for
developing and nurturing an international community of scholars and
practitioners who are interested in all aspects of neural networks and
related approaches to computational intelligence. Neural Networks welcomes
high quality articles that contribute to the full range of neural networks
research, ranging from behavioral and brain modeling, through mathematical
and computational analyses, to engineering and technological applications of
systems that significantly use neural network concepts and algorithms.

Professor Wang expects to maintain and enhance Neural Networks position
as a premier journal of the field. He is committed to expediting the review
process and prompting communication with authors, and will work to elevate
journal visibility through electronic and other means.

"I am truly honored to be appointed to succeed Prof. Stephen Grossberg,
who in 1987 founded Neural Networks, the first journal of its kind, and has
since served as Co-Editor-in-Chief," Professor Wang commented. "Steve has
done more than anybody in building up the infrastructure of neural networks,
an enabling interdisciplinary field that has changed and is still shaping
many related disciplines and technologies."
