May 31 - June 3, 2006
Recent years have seen a convergence of research in artificial intelligence, developmental psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience and robotics, aimed at identifying common computational principles of development and learning in artificial and natural systems. The theme of this year’s conference centers on development as a process of dynamic change that occurs within a complex and embodied system. The dynamics of development extend across multiple levels, from neural circuits, to changes in body morphology, sensors, movement, behavior, and inter-personal and social patterns. The goal of the conference is to present state-of-the-art research on autonomous development in humans, animals and robots, and to continue to identify new interdisciplinary research directions for the future of the field.
International Conference on Development and Learning 2006 (ICDL06) will
on the campus of Indiana University Bloomington, May 31-
Paper submissions (for details regarding format and submission/review process see our website at http://www.icdl06.org) are invited in these areas:
Authors may specify preferences for oral or poster presentations. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be published in a conference proceedings volume. Selected conference presenters will be invited to update and expand their papers for publication in a special issue on “Dynamics of Development and Learning” of the journal Adaptive Behavior (http://adb.sagepub.com/).
