Registration at reduced fees until June 16: https://icdl-epirob2019.org/registration/

Overview
ICDL-EpiRob is a unique conference gathering researchers from computer science, robotics, psychology and developmental studies to share knowledge and research on how intelligent biological and artificial systems develop sensing, reasoning and actions. This includes development of cognitive and social abilities through dynamic interactions with their physical and social environments. This is 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.

This will be the ninth time the conference is organized, and we invite submissions for the conference in 2019 to explore, extend, and  consolidate the interdisciplinary boundaries of this exciting research field.

Scope and  Topics
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
  • principles and theories of development and learning;
  • development of skills in biological systems and robots;
  • nature vs nurture, developmental stages;
  • models on the contributions of interaction to learning
  • models on active learning
  • architectures for lifelong learning;
  • emergence of body and affordance perception;
  • analysis and modelling of human motion and state
  • models for prediction, planning and problem solving;
  • models of human-human and human-robot interaction;
  • emergence of verbal and non-verbal communication;
  • epistemological foundations and philosophical issues;
  • robot prototyping of human and animal skills
  • ethics in computational intelligence and robotics
