IEEE International Conference on Development and Learning 2007
Imperial College London, 11-13 July 2007
Development and Learning are fundamental properties of any cognitive system, whether natural or artificial, and have attracted the attention of psychologists, neuroscientists, roboticists and artificial intelligence researchers. The International Conference on Development and Learning strives to bring together this interdisciplinary audience to encourage understanding and cross-fertilization of ideas from the different disciplines. Now in its 6th year, ICDL 2007 will have the theme of “Assisting Development” to encourage participants to consider the application of their research to the conceptualization, design and implementation of systems that can assist development.

Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):
* General Principles of Development and Learning in Humans and Robots
* Neural, Behavioral and Computational Plasticity
* Biologically Inspired Mental Architectures for Development
* Embodied Cognition: Foundations and Applications
* Social Development in Humans and Robots
* Language Development and Learning
* Dynamic Systems Approaches
* Emergence of Structures through Development
* Development of Perceptual and Motor Systems
* Models of Developmental Disorders
* Architectures and software/hardware platforms for assisting development.
Papers will be peer-reviewed by the international program committee, and
will be judged on their originality, scientific rigor, and significance of
the results. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings,
published by IEEE Press, and available online on the IEEE Xplore digital
library. Paper abstracts will also be indexed by euCognition. Accepted
authors will be given the opportunity to submit related data and video
demonstrations for inclusion on an accompanying DVD.
