The aim of the Postgraduate Conference on Robotics and Development of Cognition (RobotDoC-PhD) is to bring together young scientists working on developmental cognitive robotics and its core disciplines. The conference aims to provide both feedback and greater visibility to their research as lively and stimulating discussion can be held amongst participating PhD students and senior researchers. The conference is open to all PhD students and post-doctoral researchers in the field. RobotDoC-PhD conference is an initiative as a part of Marie-Curie Actions ITN RobotDoC and will be organized as a satellite event of the 22nd International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks ICANN 2012.

All accepted submissions will be published on a CD-ROM with a DOI, and selected for either oral or poster presentation at the conference. Authors of the best works will be invited to submit a revised and extended paper for publication in a special issue of the Paladyn Journal of Behavioral Robotics, with a further peer review stage.
