It has been lots of work this year as author, reviewer and publication co-chair, so it's time for the conference to finally begin. The IEEE ICDL-EpiRob conference will take place here in Osaka, starting on Sunday, Aug. 18, and ending on next Thursday, Aug. 22.
Felix will present our work on the integration of goal babbling and associative neural memories. I will also give a short talk at the co-located event here.
In general, the progam looks promising so I think this will be an interesting scientific event. Plus, it will certainly be a nice social event. Nice to see again so many familiar faces in my new home town.
Finally, I want to share a tip that Japanese people keep giving me to those who come to ICDL: Try not to melt! (see the latest weather here)
