Please make sure to select the Special Session "Cognition and Development" (under "S. SPECIAL SESSION TOPICS") as the "Main Research topic" of your submission.
Aim and Scope

The special session aims at the presentation of the latest models and results in the investigation of developmental issues in cognitive development and their application to computational and robotics models. In particular it encourages submissions on neural computation and cognitive robotics models of sensorimotor, cognitive and social development inspired by our understanding of human development, or used to improve this understanding in interaction with psychology and neuroscience. These include evolutionary and developmental models of the origins of intrinsic motivation, perceptual and motor development, social learning and interaction, imitation, acquisition of communicative and linguistic skills, and reasoning.

Scientific challenges addressed by these models include: What are the mechanisms that allow a child (and a robot) to develop autonomously cognitive capabilities? How does the social and physical environment, with which the child interacts, shape and scaffold the child's developing cognitive skills and knowledge? What are the constraints and the cognitive primitives that are needed to bootstrap development? What do qualitative stages during development, and body and brain maturational changes, tell us about the mechanisms and principles supporting development?

The special session also encourages submissions from the empirical developmental science disciplines, such as child psychology, developmental linguistics and neuroscience, and interdisciplinary approaches to cognition and development.
