Call For Papers

1st Workshop: "Testing Embodied Cognition: The Embodied Mind in a Cognitive Universal Body"
When and Where?: 5th September 2019 - “Taberna” – Alte Mensa – Georg-August-Universität Göttingen
Confirmed Keynote: Prof. Giorgio Metta -iCub Project
Contact Scientific Coordinator: Alfonsina Scarinzi, Dr. phil.
Deadline for proposal: 20th August 2019

The embodied mind or embodied cognition thesis appeals to the idea that cognition deeply depends on aspects of the agent's body other than the brain.
According to embodied cognition, a baby, for example, learns many cognitive skills by interacting with its environment and other humans, using its limbs and senses. Consequently, its internal model of the world is largely determined by the form of the human body. The embodied approach to cognition was tested within the iCub project. The iCub is a humanoid robot that allows cognitive learning scenarios to be acted out by an accurate reproduction of the perceptual system and articulation of a small child so that it could interact with the world in the same way that such a child does. In other words, it is believed that human-like manipulation plays a vital role in the development of human cognition.

Within this workshop, we would like to discuss the argument that the motor system influences our cognition and the question of how embodied cognition can be tested. The iCub project will be one of the topics.

More precisely, we look for cross-disciplinary and multidisciplinary contributions dealing with

- the sensorimotor approach to consciousness (sensorimotor contingency theory)

- the mirror neuron system, representations, and embodied simulation

- the mirror neurons as neural resonance system and the brain

- HCI and the embodied approach to emotions

- participatory sense-making and HCI


Contributions from all disciplines are welcome.

Please send your proposal (300 words) to the organizer and scientific coordinator: Alfonsina Scarinzi, Dr. phil alfonsinascarinzi@googlemail.com not later than 20th August.
