*******************************************************

Scope

ICDL-EpiRob is a unique conference gathering researchers from the domains
of computer science, robotics, psychology and developmental studies to
share knowledge and new research results on how humans and animals develop
sensing, perception, reasoning, and actions.

In order for sensing, reasoning, development and learning to take place in
artificial systems/beings, computing substrates and models that support the
emergence of such properties are required.

This workshop encompasses the understanding, analysis, modeling and
development of novel substrates that show development and learning
abilities, such as (but not limited to):


- Cellular automata and random boolean networks,
- Reservoir computing,
- Novel nanoscale materials (e.g. carbon nanotubes),
- Biological materials and systems (e.g. neuronal cultures),
- Evolvable hardware and neuromorphic computing systems,
- Novel neural models and models of biological neuron,
- Evolution-in-materio systems,
- Computational matter,
- Slime mould computing,
- Micro- and nano-scale electronic chemistry,
- Substrates that exhibit self-reconfiguration, fault tolerance,
self-repair, and adaptation capabilities,
- Artificial generative and developmental systems,
- Computational intelligence techniques for novel developmental and
learning substrates
- Learning through self-organization and emergence
