Cognitive Robotics, Intelligence and Control

Welcome to the International Workshop on Cognitive Robotics, Intelligence and Control 2006. This workshop was supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF, USA) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC, UK) in order to bring together internationally leading researchers in the field of cognitive robotics, cognitive intelligence and cognitive control.

Dates: Wednesday 16th to Friday 18th August 2006

Venue: Windsor, England, UK
The workshop was held in a splendid 17th century house, Cumberland Lodge , located in Windsor Great Park, overlooking Windsor Castle in, Berkshire, England.

Participation was invited from a number of related fields: Neuroscience, Robotics, Sensorimotor control, Haptics, Philosophy, Psychology, Haptics and Cybernetics.

Presentation options included Plenary presentation, talk or Poster as part of the overall Workshop discussions. However, this workshop was not solely about summarising and presenting state-of-the-art work in the field. It was also a planning and roadmapping activity. Both funding bodies will receive full reports in order to direct future research calls.

Each contributer was asked to provide a one page extended abstract of their contribution.

All participants provided a one page resume of their research interests.

Presentations, where appropriate, were collated.

The topics of interest included neuroscience, cognition, and sensorimotor control, with the ultimate goal of developing intelligent robust machines based on these principles. Also of interest would be questions of how the robotics community could contribute to these fields. An interdisciplinary strategy was taken embracing biological and engineering approaches to cognitive science.

Sample list of topics

  • cognitive robotics
  • cognitive control
  • working memory
  • robot learning based on natural (e.g., brain-based) devices
  • spiking neuron models for pattern recognition
  • models of self reflective processes in robotics
