The IEEE International Conference on Development and Learning (ICDL), previously referred to as ICDL-EpiRob, is the premier gathering of professionals dedicated to the advancement of cognitive and developmental learning. As such, ICDL is a unique conference gathering researchers from computer science, robotics, psychology and developmental studies.

We invite submissions for the conference in 2021 to explore, extend, and consolidate the interdisciplinary boundaries of this exciting research field.

Due to the influence of COVID-19, IEEE ICDL 2021 will be held in a hybrid style.
