The fourth workshop on:

Anticipatory Behavior in Adaptive Learning Systems (ABiALS 2008)

was held in collaboration with the euCognition Meeting "The Role of Anticipation in Cognition"

26 June 2008, Munich

 

 

The ABiALS workshops are designed to encourage interdisciplinary research on anticipatory behavior in animals, animats, and artificial intelligence systems. Submissions that investigate anticipatory behavior mechanisms are encouraged.

 

The general aim of the ABiALS workshop is to bring together researchers that are interested in anticipatory adaptive behavior. Anticipatory behavior is a mechanism, or a behavior, that does not only depend on the past and present but also on predictions, expectations, or beliefs about the future. The expected outcome of the workshop is to discuss and evaluate the different influences that predictions, expectations, goals, desires, or intentions can have on actual behavior, including influences on attention, action decision making and control, as well as learning. To do so, there will be several invited overview talks on anticipatory mechanisms in different disciplines, short presentations of concrete approaches in artificial cognitive systems, and several interactive discussion sessions.
