IEEE ICDL-EPIROB 2015 Registration Open

The Fifth Joint IEEE International Conference on Development and Learning and on Epigenetic Robotics
Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, USA 
August 13-16, 2015 

Registration is now open at: http://www.tech.plym.ac.uk/SoCCE/CRNS/icdl-epirob//2015/registration.html

In addition to the main conference, we will have both a preconference workshop and tutorial:
Morning: "Introduction to Brains as Emergent Turing Machines" (Juyang Weng)
Afternoon: "Mechanisms of learning in social contexts" (Michael Goldstein, Chen Yu)

Conference description

The past decade has seen the emergence of a new scientific field that studies how intelligent biological and artificial systems develop sensorimotor, cognitive, emotional and social abilities, over extended periods of time, through dynamic interactions with their physical and social environments. This field lies at the intersection of a number of scientific and engineering disciplines including Neuroscience, Developmental Psychology, Developmental Linguistics, Cognitive Science, Computational Neuroscience, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Robotics. Various terms have been associated with this new field such as Autonomous Mental Development, Epigenetic Robotics, Developmental Robotics, etc., and several scientific meetings have been 
established. The two most prominent conference series of this field, the International Conference on 
Development and Learning (ICDL) and the International Conference on Epigenetic Robotics (EpiRob), are now joining forces for the fifth time and invite submissions for a joint conference in 2015, to explore and extend the interdisciplinary boundaries of this field.

BABYBOT CHALLENGE

We are excited to announce a new ICDL-EpiRob conference feature: the BABYBOT CHALLENGE. The goal of the challenge is to use the tools of developmental robotics to replicate and extend the key findings from one of three selected human-infant studies. These will be presented during a special session.
