Mark Lee Prof. Mark Lee received the degrees of B.Sc. (1967) and M.Sc. (1969) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Wales, Swansea, and the Ph.D. (1980) in Psychology from Nottingham University. He is currently Professor of Intelligent Systems in the Department of Computer Science at Aberystwyth University, Wales, UK. His main research interests are in Developmental Robotics, particularly in relation to early infant psychology. He was PI on four recent EPSRC and EC funded research projects on robotic sensory-motor learning, adaptation and development.
Qiang Shen Prof. Qiang Shen received   the   Ph.D.   degree   from Heriot-Watt    University,    Edinburgh,    U.K.,    and the   D.Sc.   degree   from   Aberystwyth   University, Aberystwyth, U.K. He holds the established Chair in computer science and is the Director with the Institute of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science, Aberystwyth University. His research interests include computational intelligence, reasoning under uncertainty, pattern recognition, data mining, and real-world applications  of  such  techniques  for  intelligent  decision support  (e.g.,  crime  detection,  consumer  profiling,  systems  monitoring,  and medical diagnosis). He has authored two research monographs and more than 310 peer-reviewed papers. Dr Shen is a long-serving Associate Editor of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CYBERNETICS and the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON FUZZY SYSTEMS and an editorial board member of several other leading international journals. He received an Outstanding Transactions Paper Award from IEEE. He is a Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales.
Patricia Shaw Dr Patricia Shaw received her B.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence (2005) and Ph.D. in Computer Science (2010) from the University of Durham.  She has recently finished working as a Post Doctoral Research Associate, researching developmental robotics as part of the European Framework 7 IM-CLeVeR project, and is now a Lecturer in the Intelligent Robotics Group at Aberystwyth University.  Her research interests include biologically and psychologically inspired architectures for developmental learning in robotic systems.
Alexandros Giagkos Dr Alexandros Giagkos received the degrees of B.Sc. in Computer Science, M.Sc. in Internet and Distributed Systems and Ph.D. in biologically inspired networking from Aberystwyth University, UK. Alexandros is a post-doctoral research associate of the Intelligent Robotics Group at Aberystwyth University. His main regions of research interest are developmental, evolutionary and swarm robotics.
Raphael Braud Dr Raphael Braud holds an MSc in Intelligent Systems and Robotics from the University of Cergy-Pontoise, France, and he is currently pursuing a PhD degree in Developmental Robotics on the modeling of cognitive mechanisms and sensorimotor approaches for both motor control and tool-use in infants at the ETIS Laboratory, in the same institution. Currently, Raphaël is conducting research on developmental learning for humanoid robots through interactions with objects and tools.
Suresh Kumar Mr Suresh Kumar is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Intelligent Robotics at Aberystwyth University.
