Call for Papers

Special issue on Language and Cognition
Frontiers in Robotics and AI

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to contribute a Paper on our Research Topic of Language and Cognition, in the “Frontiers in Robotics and AI” journal.

“Frontiers” is a novel venue created by EPFL in Switzerland, which is home to a number of top-notch, open access, innovative journals.

The focus of the special issue is on Language between embodied agents (humans, animals, robots etc.) and in particular the interaction of Language with other modules of Cognition, including Perception, the Motor System, Reasoning abilities, and Learning Mechanisms. By “Language” we refer to its wider sense, including natural language, sign language and other symbolic or (semi)symbolic systems of communication. We therefore, envision this Frontiers Research Topic to become a hub for research that explores language from an enactive perspective, employing experimental and computational methods, and also including robot- and avatar- based embodiments, as well as simulation-based and other innovative methodologies.
