" *The Development of the Self: from self-perception to interaction under uncertainty* ", a full-day workshop at the IEEE International Conference on Developmental Learning and Epigenetic Robotics (ICDL-EpiRob 2017), to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on September 18, 2017.

This is the first interdisciplinary workshop that brings together roboticists, psychologists and cognitive scientists to address self-construction from a sensorimotor point of view and to discuss the challenges and possibilities arising for building real life robots. The development of intelligent behaviour depends strongly on active exploration and sensorimotor interactions with the world. However, it is not clear how multimodal sensorimotor temporal and spatial associations could be integrated into a single representation of the self or an individual sense of agency or ownership. What is a sensorimotor self? How can sensorimotor learning ground the development of the self? And what could be the benefits of having an integrated bodily self-model in order to support effective actions in an uncertain world (e.g., through prediction)?

The goal of the WS is to: i) shed some light on the development and construction of the sensorimotor self; ii) discuss computational models that use self-perceptive learning as a basis for active interaction and agency inference; and iii) propose the steps toward future interdisciplinary research regarding the active self concept.

**** *Call for contributions (detailed)* ****

Participants are required to submit a 1-2 pages extended abstract or short paper (no more than 4 pages) of relevant work. Publications to be presented at the main conference (ICDL-Epirob 2017) are also welcome.

Accepted contributions will be presented during the workshop as posters or to present their work/ideas in a poster session and up to 4 selective submissions will give a 15 min talk at the workshop. Please indicate in your email if you want to present your work as a poster or/and in an oral presentation.

Please submit your abstract to the workshop’s official email address selfception.works...@gmail.com indicating [ICDL 2017 Workshop]. The template for the extended abstracts is IEEE conference style (two-columns). Latex: http://www.tech.plym.ac.uk/SoCCE/CRNS/icdl-epirob/2015/icdl-epirob-latex.zip Word: http://www.tech.plym.ac.uk/SoCCE/CRNS/icdl-epirob/2015/icdl-epirob-word.zip

Furthermore, we are planning a special issue covering the topics addressed in the workshop, to which we invite all participants to contribute their novel work.
