Call for Submissions papers and workshops
We invite submissions for this exciting window into the future of developmental sciences. Submissions which establish novel links between brain, behavior and computation are particularly encouraged.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- the development of perceptual, motor, cognitive, emotional, social, and communication skills in biological systems and robots
- general principles of development and learning
- interaction of nature and nurture
- sensitive/critical periods
- developmental psychology
- developmental stages
- grounding of knowledge and development of representations
- architectures for cognitive development and open-ended learning
- neural plasticity
- statistical learning
- reward and value systems
- intrinsic motivations, exploration and play
- interaction of development and evolution
- use of robots in applied settings such as autism therapy
- epistemological foundations and philosophical issues.
Any of the topics above can be simultaneously studied from the neuroscience, psychology or modeling/robotic point of view.
Submissions will be accepted in several formats:
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. Featured posters will have a 1 minute "teaser" presentation as part of the main conference session and will be showcased in the poster sessions. Maximum two-extra pages can be acceptable for a publication fee of $100 per page.
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. These submissions will be included in the conference proceedings. Accepted abstracts will be presented during poster sessions. The posters must be in vertical A0 format. For the highlight session of one mimute send a pdf to Sofiane Boucenna or Alexandre Pitti before the 17th.
Tutorials and workshops: We invite experts in different areas to organize either a tutorial or a workshop to be held on the first day of the conference (September 19th, Monday ). Tutorials are meant to provide insights into specific topics as well as overviews that will inform the interdisciplinary audience about the state-of-the-art in child development, neuroscience, robotics, or any of the other disciplines represented at the conference.
A workshop is an opportunity to present a topic cumulatively. Workshops can be half- or full-day in duration including oral presentations as well as posters.
We would like to receive applications in pdf format for organizing a workshop with the following informations:
- title / workshop or tutorial
- organiser's name, research structure and coordinate (email)
- how many invited presentations/ and 'open' presentations
- is there a call for posters?
- what is the timetable
- website address ?
All submissions will be peer reviewed. Submission website through paperplaza at: ras.papercept.net
