Dear colleagues,

An euCognition-sponsored workshop on "Adaptive Mechanisms of the
Perception-Action Cycle" will be held held in Prague, Czech Republic,
in September 6th, in connection with the ICANN conference 
The goal of the workshop is to provide an international, interdisciplinary 
forum on the topic of adaptive mechanisms of the perception-action cycle, 
with the purpose to advance our understanding of the state-of-the-art on 
bottom-up and top-down approaches to artificial cognitive systems 
development. Presentations and papers on perception, attention, memory, 
learning, decision making, reasoning, conflict resolution, motivation and 
action will be presented. The manner in which attention is involved (initially 
to consciously guide the visual and motor processing and then to let it run 
on automatic until error signals bring attention focus back to the source of 
the problem and attempt its resolution) are considered highly 
relevant to the workshop. The perception-action cycle is an important 
aspect by which to enter a larger domain associated with the construction of 
autonomous machines. The latter require the perception-action cycle as a 
basis for development of an embodied system able to learn (by trial and error 
or observational learning) how to be increasingly effective in the given 
environment of the machine.
