Workshop on Artficial Life based models of Higher Cognition

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Satellite Workshop on  Artficial Life based models of Higher Cognition with the European Conference on Artifical Life (ECAL 2013), Taormina, Italy, 2-6 September 2012

workshop website: http://www.nac.unina.it/alhc/

IMPORTANT DATES
Submission of abstracts:  20th May 2012
Notification of authors: 10th June 2012
Workshop: 2nd September 2013 (TBC by ECAL organisers)

AIM AND TOPICS
The aim of the workshop is to facilitate integration, to promote and to encourage Artificial Life modelling of higher cognitive processes, integrating complex motor systems and complex higher cognitive abilities.
Artificial Life was originally conceived as a powerful tool to answer to the question about the nature of life. Many researches in the last decades drew attention on different aspects, including chemistry, biology, evolution and some minimal forms of cognition, so as to study a complex phenomenon at different scale domains. Focusing on cognition, AL techniques have been utilized to uncover minimal mechanism of important cognitive processes such as categorization, language, spatial behavior, motor control and the like. However following this bottom up approach we need to address higher cognitive processes in an integrated manner, so as to exploit the
full power of AL approach.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, Artificial Life models of:
Spatial cognition
Language
Mental Imagery
Decision Making
Social Learning
Cultural Transmission
Role Allocation
Active Perception
Awareness
Categorisation
