The International Conference on Development and Learning
Recent years have seen a convergence of research in artificial
intelligence, developmental psychology, cognitive science,
neuroscience and robotics, aimed at identifying common computational
principles of development and learning in artificial and natural
systems. The goal of the ICDL conference series is to present
state-of-the-art research on autonomous development in humans, animals,
and robots, and to continue to identify new interdisciplinary research
directions for the future of the field.

The ICDL Governing Board
The ICDL Governing Board serves as the governing rule for the ICDL
conference series. It decides on major governing issues, such as
sponsorship, guidelines for running ICDLs, selection of the major
organizers and the venues of future ICDLs. In particular, the ICDL
Governing Board serves these functions:
The current ICDL Governing Board is composed of:
- Review and update of the guidelines for ICDL organizers and venues.
Currently, a North America location and a location other than
North America are switched annually.
- Selection of the major annual organizers and the venue of ICDLs.
The proposal from the selected organizer must be submitted at
least 18 months (1.5 years) before the date of the conference, to
provide enough time for society sponsorships, advertisements and
- Election of four new ICDL GB members every two years. The
solicitation for nomination of four new GB members starts in
November of the end of term (odd years) and the election is
typically completed by January of the following year.
- Election of the chair and co-chair of ICDL GB within the new GB
typically completed at the beginning of every term.
