Fri Sep 25 17:27:35 CEST 2020

The SMILES (Sensorimotor Interaction, Language and Embodiment of Symbols) Workshop will take place virtually at the ICDL 2020, on 2nd & 3rd November 2020.

* Call for abstracts and papers:
- *** Deadline: extended to 12th of October 2020 ***
  - paper abstracts: 2 pages
  - long papers: 4-6 pages
- Submissions: smiles.conf at gmail.com <mailto:smiles.conf at gmail.com>
- Papers format: free format, but similar shape to ICDL conference https://cis.ieee.org/publications/t-cognitive-and-developmental-systems/tcds-information-for-authors <https://cis.ieee.org/publications/t-cognitive-and-developmental-systems/tcds-information-for-authors>
- Workshop dates: 2nd & 3rd November 2020 afternoons (1 to 6 pm CET)

* Workshop Short Description
On the one hand, models of sensorimotor interaction are embodied in the environment and in the interaction with other agents. On the other hand, recent Deep Learning development of Natural Language Processing (NLP) models allow to capture increasing language complexity (e.g. compositional representations, word embedding, long term dependencies). However, those NLP models are disembodied in the sense that they are learned from static datasets of text or speech. How can we bridge the gap from low-level sensorimotor interaction to high-level compositional symbolic communication? The SMILES workshop will address this issue through an interdisciplinary approach involving researchers from (but not limited to):
- Sensori-motor learning,
- Emergent communication in multi-agent systems,
- Chunking of perceptuo-motor gestures (gestures in a general sense: motor, vocal, ...),
- Sensori-motor learning,
- Symbol grounding and symbol emergence,
- Compositional representations for communication and action sequence,
- Hierarchical representations of temporal information,
- Language processing and acquisition in brains and machines,
- Models of animal communication,
- Understanding composition and temporal processing in neural network models, and
- Enaction, active perception, perception-action loop.
