**Apologies for cross posting **

We are happy to call for papers for the journal special issue:
“Representation Learning for Human and Robot Cognition”


I. Aim and Scope
This special issue aims to shed light on cutting edge lines of interdisciplinary research in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, neuroscience, cognitive robotics, and human-robot interaction, focusing on representation learning with the objective of creating natural and intelligent interaction between humans and robots. Recent advances and future research lines in representation learning will be discussed in detail in this journal special issue.

II. Potential Topics
Topics relevant to this special issue include, but are not limited to:
? Language learning, embodiment, and social intelligence
? Human symbol system and symbol emergence in robotics
? Computational modeling for high-level human cognitive functions
? Predictive learning from sensorimotor information
? Multimodal interaction and concept formulation
? Language and action development
? Learning, reasoning, and adaptation in collaborative human-robot tasks
? Affordance learning
? Cross-situational learning
? Learning by demonstration and imitation
? Language and grammar induction in robots
