*2nd Call for Contributions*

IEEE ICDL -2018 workshop on Continual Unsupervised Sensorimotor Learning

17th September 2018, Tokyo, Japan

Website : http://conferences.au.dk/icdl-epirob-2018-workshop

Participants are invited to submit short papers (max 4 pages) following the
standard IEEE conference template. Selected contributions will be presented
during the workshop as spotlight talks and in a poster session. Authors
will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for a special
issue on Continual Unsupervised Sensorimotor Learning at IEEE TCDS.



As the algorithms for learning single tasks in restricted environments are
improving, new challenges have gained relevance. They include multi-task
learning, multimodal sensorimotor learning in open worlds and lifelong
adaptation to injury, growth and ageing.

In this workshop we will discuss the developmental processes involved in
the emergence of representations of action and perception in humans and
artificial agents in continual learning. These processes include
action-perception cycle, active perception, continual sensory-motor
learning, environmental-driven scaffolding, and intrinsic motivation.

The discussion will be strongly motivated by behavioural and neural data.
We hope to provide a discussion friendly environment to connect with
research with similar interest regardless of their area of expertise which
could include robotics, computer science, psychology, neuroscience, etc. We
would also like to devise a roadmap or strategies to develop mathematical
and computational models to improve robot performance and/or to attempt to
unveil the underlying mechanisms that lead to continual adaptation to
changing environment or embodiment and continual learning in open-ended

The primary list of topics covers the following (but not limited to):


   Emergence of representations via continual interaction

   Continual sensory-motor learning

   Action-perception cycle

   Active perception

   Environmental-driven scaffolding

   Intrinsic motivation

   Neural substrates, neural circuits and neural plasticity

   Human and animal behaviour experiments and models

   Reinforcement learning and deep reinforcement learning for life-long

   Multisensory robot learning

   Multimodal sensorimotor learning

   Affordance learning

   Prediction learning

of the manuscripts to a special issue at IEEE Transactions on Cognitive and
Developmental Systems (TCDS). Submissions will be peer reviewed consistent
with the journal practices.
