Paladyn. Journal of Behavioral Robotics invites manuscripts for the Special Issue on Advances in Developmental Robotics. This topical issue is dedicated to the Developmental Robotics and related applications and is aimed at presenting an overview of the present trends in this research field.

Paladyn, published by Versita and co-published with Springer Verlag, is a new peer-reviewed, electronic-only journal that publishes original and high-quality research on topics broadly related to neuronally and psychologically inspired robots and other behaving autonomous systems.

The scope of the topical issue includes but is not limited to:
• developmental and epigenetic robotics
• embodied and situated cognition
• neuro-inspired robotics
• motivational and affective mechanisms
• developmental psychology
• social interaction
• sensorimotor learning
• higher-order cognitive learning
• any work in the core disciplines of developmental robotics (i.e. humanoid robotics, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, developmental psychology, neuroscience)

Perspective authors are invited to send a letter of intent by email to Francesca Stramandinoli (francesca.stramandinoli at plymouth.ac.uk) with cc. to Natalia Efremova (nefremova at versita.com) by 8:00 PM BST on September 30, 2012. The letter of intent should include the preliminary title and author list of the manuscript.

The target length for the special issue paper should be 7 published pages (although there is no strict limitations for the maximum number of pages). The authors are kindly invited to register at our paper processing system at: www.editorialmanager.com/paladyn and submit their contribution using the special track "*SI on Advances in Developmental Robotics" established for this topical issue. All papers will go through the Paladyn's high standards, quick, fair and comprehensive peer-review procedure. The Guest Editors will be responsible for the final paper selection. Instructions for authors are available online at: www.versita.com/pjbr/authors/instructions/.
