The 4th IEEE International Conference on Development and Learning (ICDL-05) will be held in Osaka, Japan at INTEX Osaka, July 19-21, 2005. The theme of ICDL-05, "From Interaction To Cognition," refers not only to the principle of development and learning in natural or artificial systems, but also to the social process of building interdisciplinary bridges among researchers. There will be invited sessions by prominent researchers from different fields that represent the study of leaning and development in humans, animals, and automatons. Tutorials and workshops are scheduled before the conference. The conference is to be held right after the Ninth RoboCup International Competitions and Conferences, RoboCup-05 (at the same site) and right before the Fifth International Workshop on Epigenetic Robotics (EpiRob-05, in Nara). Several joint sessions/events between these meetings will be organized.
