The new CBMM Memo series achieves the following goals:
- to share preliminary versions of new results faster than we can by publishing only in traditional journals
- to fulfill our commitment to NSF
- to share our work with the broader community
- to keep track in one place of our joint and cumulative results
- to create a body of work on the science and technology of intelligence
- Make sure that the memo describes work that is relevant to the CBMM and is supported at least in part by the CBMM Note: the memo standard acknowledgment says “This work was supported by the Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), funded by NSF STC award CCF – 1231216.” Ask the thrust leader if in doubt.
- Ask the appropriate CBMM Thrust Leaders to review and approve your memo.
- Upon Thrust Leader’s approval, contact Kathleen Sullivan, email: kdsulliv [a] mit.edu, and cc your Thrust Leader, and request a memo number assignment and the CBMM cover template. Kathleen will send you your memo number and arXiv submission instructions. Please download the appropriate format for your submission of the CBMM Memo Cover Page Template from the Resources page.
- Login to the CBMM website and click on Add Publication and upload your memo selecting CBMM Memo as the Publication Type.
- We highly recommend that you upload at least an abstract of your memo to arXiv.org, and preferably the entire Memo, to further disseminate your work.
- Within a few days of submiting your memo on the Center website, it will be added to the DSpace@MIT collection for you.
Note: The Center does not expect problems with publishing Memos as either pre-prints or post prints. For most major journals, having published a CBMM Memos does not preclude publishing the paper through their journal.
