Dear Sir / Madam,
With autumn decidedly upon us, we at Cambridge Scholars Publishing have braved the rain and chosen a fantastic selection of titles for this month’s Critic’s Choice favourites. October’s Book of the Month for Social Sciences, which comes with a generous 33% discount, examines the relationship between - and issues surrounding - gender and trauma.
Click here to read a sample extract and contents page. Please note that this is a time limited offer for the month of October.
Thank you for taking the time to read this email, and please let us know if you have any feedback or wish for assistance concerning any of the information provided within.

Subject: IEEE TNNLS April 2012 - Table of Contents


Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for your support to IEEE TNN and now IEEE TNNLS. This is a
free service to all users of IEEE TNNLS ScholarOne Manuscripts. We
would like share with you the newest table of contents of IEEE TNNLS.


Prof. Derong Liu
IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems

The following articles appeared in the latest issue of IEEE Transactions on
Neural Networks and Learning Systems; Volume 23, Issue 4, April 2012.

This issue published some papers on deep neural networks, discriminant
analysis, feature extraction, and kernel principal component
analysis. We welcome you to submit your papers on these topics to IEEE TNNLS.

These articles can be retrieved on IEEE Xplore:
or directly by clicking the individual paper URL below.
