Ninth European Conference on Artificial Life (ECAL2007) — Call for Papers

The Ninth European Conference on Artificial Life will be held September 10--14 in Lisbon. The "European" in ECAL just refers to the location. No matter where you are in the world, if you work on any of the following subjects (among others),

Origin and synthesis of Life: artificial chemistries, autocatalytic systems, pre-biotic evolution, self-replication, self-organization, molecular self-assembly; Information and Measures of Complexity; Networks and Complex Systems; Evolutionary Robotics and Autonomous Agents: exploitation and evolution of morphologies, 3D rapid prototyping printers, non-holonomic robot control, bio-morphic engineering, self-assembly, evolvable hardware, collective robotics; Models of Brain-Body-Environment interaction: the question of boundaries, the dynamical systems approach, agency, homeostasis and autopoiesis, sensorimotor coordination, action-perception loops; Morphogenesis and Development; Learning, Adaptive Behaviour and Evolution; Social Behavior: language, social interaction, communication, swarm intelligence, ant systems; A-Life Art; Epistemological Issues, Tools and Methodologies; Philosophical Issues; Ethical and Social Issues

then, as a member of the program committee, I strongly urge you to submit a paper before the deadline of 9 April 2007 (which gives you plenty of time!). The official call for papers has details on format, procedure, publication of the proceedings, etc. See you is Lisbon!

Complexity; Biology
