We are glad to announce the Second official Retecog Workshop on Interaction will take place 17-18 of January 2013 at the Paraninfo Building of the University of Zaragoza, Spain. Many members of IAS-Research will attend the workshop as participants, organizers or invited speakers.

The 2nd Retecog Workshop will be articulated through two main symposia, Symposium I on The sensorimotor dynamics of agent-environment interaction and Symposium II on Social and emotional interaction, while the question of how to relate agent-environment and social interaction will also be addressed.

Invited Speakers

Both symposia will share invited plenary talks by: Ezequiel Di Paolo (integrating sensorimotor and social interaction), Randall Beer and William Warren as invited speakers of the Agent-Environment Interaction Symposium and Lola Cañamero and Hanne de Jaegher as invited speakers of the Social Interaction Symposium.

Other Events

In addition two major events will also take place, focused on interaction-based Turing Test constest and experiments: the Human-like Bots Competition and the Multiplayer Perceptual Crossing Test .

About Xabier Barandiaran

I consider myself a situated and embodied philosopher, which means that I situate my philosophical practice in close interaction with scientific environments and embodied in the conceptual apparatus that emerges from this interplay. The sciences on which I feel embedded are those meeting in the multidisciplinary crossroad of cognitive sciences and artificial life: particularly the origins of agency, simulation of adaptive behaviour (evolutionary robotics and computational neuroethology), and large scale neuroscience.
