European Symposium on Artificial Neural Networks, Computational
Intelligence and Machine Learning

Special Issue on Machine Learning in Biomorphic Robots

Call for papers

Biological organisms continue to be a primary inspiration for the design
and development of robotic devices, informing not only the physical design
of the robot, but also its movement and sensing characteristics. Robots
that are biologically inspired often have novel physical designs that
 challenge standard approaches to control. This special session seeks to
bring together state-of-the-art research on the application of machine
learning to all aspects of biomorphic robot development and control. The
session will include a tutorial session on bio-inspired learning approaches
that align with the bio-inspired physical design, with a case study on a
humanoid musculoskeletal head and neck robot.
Organized by Nigel Crook, Matthias Rolf, Tjeerd olde Scheper (Oxford
Brookes Univ., UK)
