IJCNN 2017 Workshop on 'Developmental Plasticity and Evolutionary
Robotics', Anchorage, May 19, 2017 (Half day)

You are kindly invited to contribute to the IJCNN 2017 Half day Workshop on
'Developmental Plasticity and Evolutionary Robotics' which will be held in
Anchorage, on May 29, 2017 in conjunction with the 2017 International Joint
Conference on Neural Networks:


This workshop will address the impact that developmental plasticity can
have on evolutionary robotics from a multidisciplinary perspective. Given
its fundamental role in driving diversification and speciation, this
emerging and growing area of research can possibly contribute to a new
paradigm in developmental and evolutionary robotics. We will discuss how
developmental (phenotypic) plasticity can play a major role in emerging
paradigms in evolutionary robotics. Recent progress in evolutionary biology
suggests that the interplay between robotics research and the current
understanding of the plasticity mechanisms underlying the development of
living organisms is a very promising track to be followed. Interaction
between the two fields is useful for both evolutionary robotics, which can
take inspiration from biological solutions to engineering problems, and
evolutionary biology, that can benefit from artificial emulation of
biological mechanisms which can prove the validity of research hypothesis.
