    7th International Conference on Development and Learning
       Asilomar Conference Center, Monterey, California
          August 9th-12th, 2008, http://www.icdl08.org/

Call for Papers

The scope of development and learning covered by this conference 
includes perceptual, cognitive, behavioral, emotional and all other 
mental capabilities that are exhibited by humans, higher animals, 
artificial systems and robots. Investigations of the biological and 
computational mechanisms of mental development are expected to improve 
our understanding of the working of the whole range of mental 
capabilities in humans and to enable autonomous development of these 
highly complex capabilities by robots and other artificial systems. The 
International Conference on Development and Learning strives to bring 
together researchers in neuroscience, psychology, artificial 
intelligence and robotics and other related areas to encourage 
understanding and cross-fertilization of the latest ideas and results 
from the different disciplines.

ICDL 2008 will accept two types of submissions:

1) Full six-page paper submissions. Accepted papers will be included in 
the conference proceedings and will be selected for either an oral 
presentation or as a featured poster presentation. Featured posters will 
have a 1 minute "teaser" presentation as part of the main conference 
session and will be showcased in the poster sessions.

2) One-page poster abstract submissions. To encourage late-breaking 
results or for work that is not sufficiently mature for a full paper, 
ICDL will accept 1-page abstracts. These submissions will NOT be 
included in the conference proceedings. Accepted abstracts will be 
presented during the evening poster sessions.

April 14  Notification of accept/reject
