======================================================== 
 
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN
 
IEEE ICDL-EPIROB 2015 
The Fifth Joint IEEE International Conference on Development and
Learning and on Epigenetic Robotics 
 
Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, USA  
August 13-16, 2015  
http://www.icdl-epirob.org/ 
 
Registration is now open at:
http://www.tech.plym.ac.uk/SoCCE/CRNS/icdl-epirob//2015/registration.html
 
In addition to the main conference, we will have both a preconference
workshop and tutorial:
Morning: "Introduction to Brains as Emergent Turing Machines" (Juyang
Weng)
Afternoon: "Mechanisms of learning in social contexts" (Michael
Goldstein, Chen Yu)
 
== Conference description 
The past decade has seen the emergence of a new scientific field that
studies how intelligent biological and  
artificial systems develop sensorimotor, cognitive, emotional and
social abilities, over extended periods of time,  
through dynamic interactions with their physical and social
environments. This field lies at the intersection  
of a number of scientific and engineering disciplines including
Neuroscience, Developmental Psychology,  
Developmental Linguistics, Cognitive Science, Computational
Neuroscience, Artificial Intelligence, Machine  
Learning, and Robotics. Various terms have been associated with this
new field such as Autonomous Mental  
Development, Epigenetic Robotics, Developmental Robotics, etc., and
several scientific meetings have been  
established. The two most prominent conference series of this field,
the International Conference on  
Development and Learning (ICDL) and the International Conference on
Epigenetic Robotics (EpiRob), are now  
joining forces for the fifth time and invite submissions for a joint
conference in 2015, to explore and  
extend the interdisciplinary boundaries of this field. 
 
== BABYBOT CHALLENGE
We are excited to announce a new ICDL-EpiRob conference feature: the
BABYBOT CHALLENGE. The 
goal of the challenge is to use the tools of developmental robotics to
replicate and extend the key findings 
from one of three selected human-infant studies. These will be
presented during a special session.
