Editing a Special Issue on “Prediction and Perception in Humans and Robots” IEEE TCDS

A call for papers for a Special Issue on “Prediction and Perception in Humans and Robots” I am editing in IEEE Transactions on Cognitive and Developmental Systems is open.  Call available here: IEEE TCDS – special issue.

Experimental research, robotics implementations, and interdisciplinary works are particularly welcome, as well as theoretical contributions in the form of original research articles, reviews, and commentaries. This special issue invites researchers investigating topics related, but not limited, to:

  • Attentional and gating mechanisms for action and sensory
    information processing
  • Context- and task-dependent perceptual optimization
  • Sensory attenuation/cancellation and sensory enhancement/facilitation
  • Interplay of predictive and attentional mechanisms for prediction error minimization
  • Multimodal integration and/or cross-modal interactions
  • State representation learning
  • Constrained innate priors that drive learning
  • Prediction in language learning and comprehension
  • Prediction error dynamics monitoring
  • Dreaming, non-conscious perception, hallucination, altered perceptual phenomena

IMPORTANT DATES

  • Paper submission deadline – 15 July 2021
  • Notification to authors – 15 September 2021
  • Deadline revised papers submission – 15 November 2021
  • Final version – 15 December 2021
