Call For Papers

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to submit papers to 8th Joint IEEE International Conference on Development and Learning and on Epigenetic Robotics (IEEE ICDL-EPIROB 2018) that will be held in Tokyo at Waseda University. See below for further details.

Submission deadline: March 15th, 2018
Full-Day Workshop at IROS 2017
Tokyo, Japan
Conference: September 17th – 20th, 2018

=== Resume ===

The past decade has seen the emergence of a new scientific field in which computational techniques are employed to study how intelligent biological and artificial systems develop sensorimotor, cognitive and social abilities through dynamic interactions with their physical and social environments, with a twofold objective: to gain a better understanding of human and animal intelligence, and to enable artificial systems with more adaptive and flexible behaviors.
The two most prominent conference series of this area, the International Conference on Development and Learning (ICDL) and the International Conference on Epigenetic Robotics (EpiRob), are joining forces for the seventh time and invite submissions for a joint meeting in 2017 to explore, extend, and consolidate the interdisciplinary boundaries of this exciting research field. In addition to the usual paper submission-selection process, the BabyBot Challenge will crown computational models that capture core aspects of specific psychology experiments.

=== Topics ===

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
– general principles of development and learning;
– development of skills in biological systems and robots;
– nature VS nurture, critical periods and developmental stages;
– architectures for cognitive development and life-long learning;
– emergence of body knowledge and affordance perception;
– models for prediction, planning and problem solving;
– models of human-human and human-robot interaction;
– emergence of verbal and non-verbal communication skills;
– epistemological foundations and philosophical issues;
– models of child development from experimental psycho

=== Submission ===

Full six-page paper submissions: Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and will be selected for either an oral presentation or a featured poster presentation.
Two-page poster abstract submissions: o encourage discussion of late-breaking results or for work that is not sufficiently mature for a full paper, we will accept 2-page abstracts.
Tutorials and workshops: We invite experts in different areas to organize either a tutorial or a workshop to be held on the first day of the conference. Tutorials are meant to provide insights into specific topics through hand-on training and interactive experiences.

=== Important Dates ===

Submission deadline: March 15th, 2018

Notification due: June 1st, 2018
Final Version due: July 1st, 2018
Conference: September 16th – 20th, 2018
