I am delighted to announce open submission to BICA 2013.
WHAT: Annual International Conference on Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures
WHERE: Kiev, Ukraine, Intercontinental hotel
WHEN: Saturday-Sunday, September 14-15, 2013
Submission deadline is March 15. Two volumes of proceedings will be published, and you can select where to publish: in the Elsevier's journal BICA or in the highly indexed volume of Procedia.

Summary: The challenge of creating a real-life computational equivalent of the human mind calls for our joint efforts to develop biologically-inspired intelligent agents and co-robots that can be accepted and trusted by the human society as partners in various roles. To do this, we need to better understand at a computational level how natural intelligent systems develop their cognitive and learning functions.
Please reply and let us know whether you are planning to submit a paper or an abstract - or have any questions.
