This special issue collects a subset of the papers presented at the Joint Chinese- German Workshop on Cognitive Systems, held March 7-11, 2005, at Fudan U- versity,inShanghai,the city that neversleepsandchangesdaily.Justas itis not easy to keeptrack of Shanghai’s growthand modernisation,it is hardto keep up with research on the new transdiscipline of cognitive systems, which is emerging from computer science, the neurosciences, computational linguistics, neurolo- cal networks and the new philosophy of mind. The workshop served to present the current state of the art in these ?elds and brought together researchersfrom Fudan University and Jiao Tong University, both in Shanghai, China, and from Saarland University, Germany. The WorkshoponCognitiveSystems was the lastin a seriesof events to mark the longstanding collaboration between the three universities, which includes numerous joint projects, exchange of researchers and research visits, as well as formal joint cooperation agreements, treatises and joint Ph.D. and student exchangeprogrammesinthe ?elds ofcomputer science,arti?cialintelligence and in computational linguistics. Well before 1995 there were several exchange visits between Ruqian Lu and J¨ org Siekmann to Shanghai, Beijing and Saarbru ¨cken/Kaiserslautern. In 1995, formalcooperationstartedwith a visit to Shanghai by Jorg ¨ Siekmann, Xiaorong Huang and Hans Uszkoreit. The visit resulted in the joint project Applied C- nese Natural Language Generation on the automatic generation of Chinese, - glish and German languages for weather reports and for stock exchange news.
