IEEE ICDL-EPIROB 2018 General Chair
8th Joint IEEE International Conference on Development and Learning and on
Conference: September 16th ? 20th, 2018
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
2018 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
=== 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: To 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 or second day of the conference.
Tutorials are meant to provide insights into specific topics through
hand-on training and interactive experiences.
=== Babybot Challenge Paper Award ===
Babybot Challenge papers are expected to establish a strong link between
developmental psychology and robotics and/or computational modeling.
Submissions will be judged by the following criteria:
– How well does the computational model (e.g. an artificial system, which
can be a robot or a software agent) represent the particular features of
the experimental research addressed
– How closely the performance of the model replicate the experimental
findings, and how parsimonious is the model.
– The extent of the novel insights or explanations generated by the model,
and importantly whether the model make interesting and testable predictions.
We encourage the authors to tag their submission for “Babybot Challenge”
award during contributed paper submission, which would indicate that there
is significant content that puts the paper in the spotlight of “Babybot
Challenge”. The prize for the winner of the Babybot Challenge is a Titan-V
(GPGPU board) by Nvidia.
