==== COVID-19 Update ====
We have been monitoring the situation evolving around COVID-19 closely and
after considering multiple options, together with our partners, we have
the following changes:

This will be almost two months later than initially planned.
- Additionally, ICDL 2020 will be a hybrid event with on-site and online

- Moreover, we have extended all our deadlines. Already submitted articles
can be modified.
- Finally, we will record and make as many of the talks available to the
We hope that with these changes, we can still make exiting state-of-the-art
research on cognitive and developmental systems to as many of you as
Stay safe and we hope to welcome you in Valparaiso.
==== Important Dates ====
Submission deadline: 29th June 2020
Author notification: 20th of July 2020
Conference: 28th-30th October 2020
==== Overview ====
The Journal Track is designed to provide a forum to discuss important
results related to cognitive and developmental systems recently published
as journal articles, but have not been previously presented as conference
papers. Thus, the journal track offers an opportunity to present
outstanding results that might otherwise not be submitted to a conference
due to their length and complexity.
All accepted journal presentations will be selected for either oral or
poster presentation during the conference based on the reviews - at least

conference papers may NOT be submitted to this track.

conference chairs. Selection criteria include the significance of the
results and relevance to the ICDL community.
