We ask that all papers:
o Reference or describe a model of action selection,
o Reference or describe a data set derived from the actions
of living animals or humans, and
o Make direct comparisons between the model and biological
All aspects of action selection are acceptable, from single task
performance to evolutionary models of behavior, from individual
protozoa to human societies. Our goal for the workshop is to bring
together researchers using a variety of strategies for modeling with
an aim to build an understanding of the currently available models,
tools, advances and challenges in the field.
Our ultimate goal is to create a rich synergy between AI and NI models
of action selection. A similar synergy has helped advance the fields
of neuroscience and neural networks over the past decade, and has
resulted in a number of journals which regularly publish strong papers
from both fields.
