Call for Papers and Extended Abstracts
DevLeaNN: A Workshop on Development and Learning in Artificial Neural 
October 27 and 28, in Paris, France

DevLeaNN is a two-day workshop devoted to showcasing the current 
state-of-the-art at the intersection of development and learning in 
artificial neural network design. The purpose of DevLeaNN is to gather 
researchers from related streams of research to present both novel 
research and summaries of research portfolios.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
* constructive or pruning techniques / network ensembles
* neural Darwinism
* neuro-evolutionary techniques
* reservoir computing (Echo State Networks, Liquid State Machines)
* deep neural networks
* artificial development / artificial embryogeny / generative and 
developmental techniques
* genotype-to-phenotype mappings
* temporal / spatial development
* artificial genetic regulatory networks
* neuromodulation
* plasticity
* knowledge representation / population coding
* topological optimization

We are soliciting papers and extended abstracts. Both novel research and 
summaries of existing research portfolios are welcome.

October 27-28, 2011
Institut des systèmes complexes, Paris, France

* Paper/Extended Abstract Submission: Friday 9 September, 2011
* Paper/Extended Abstract Notification: Friday 23 September, 2011
