Multi-Disciplinary Workshop on Developmental Dynamics June 3-6, 2018

Greetings Colleagues,

It gives us great pleasure to announce the workshop, “Expanding the Field: Multi-Disciplinary Developmental Dynamics” to be held June 3-6, 2018 at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK. This event will be followed by the “Dynamic Field Theory Bootcamp” from June 7-9, 2018.

In the past three decades, there has been a growing appreciation of development as a dynamical system. Historically, this reflects the application of methods in physics and mathematics to emerging concepts in psychological science. As we consider developmental dynamics 30 years on, the workshop seeks renewed multi-disciplinary synergies to broaden our understanding of developmental process. Toward this end, we bring developmental scientists together with modellers, cognitive systems researchers, roboticists, and neuroscientists to exchange ideas, recognizing that outside-the-box thinking can both enhance how we think about development and shape discussions in other disciplines.

A complete description of both events including registration and poster submission information can be found at our website:

The list of speakers includes Linda Smith, Denis Mareschal, Gregor Schoner, Will Penny, Daniela Corbetta, Aaron Buss, Yulia Sandamirskaya, Chen Yu, Teea Gliga, Andrew Bayliss, Sebastian Schneegans, Ingo Bojak, Larissa Samuelson, Kim Plunkett, Angelo Cangelosi, Nadja Althaus, Vanessa Simmering, Torkel Klingberg, Sobana Wijeakumar, Natasha Kirkham, Gert Westermann, Eric Jackson, Tom FitzGerald, Mathis Richter, Sean Deoni, Michael Thomas, Martin Doherty, John Spencer, Sarah Lloyd Fox, Ajaz Bhatt, Brad Love, and Pierre-Yves Oudeyer, Dietmar Heinke, Alfredo Pereira, Jessica Horst, and Lynn Perry.
