ALIFE 2014 : Artificial Life
Call For Papers
We cordially invite you to submit papers to ALIFE 14:
The Fourteenth International Conference on the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems.
Since its inception in 1987, ALIFE has been the leading biyearly international conference in the field of Artificial Life — the highly interdisciplinary research area on artificially constructed living systems, including mathematical, computational, robotic, and biochemical ones. The understanding and application of such generalized forms of life, or “life-as-it-could-be”, have been producing significant contributions to various fields of science and engineering.
The upcoming ALIFE 14 will be held at the Javits Convention Center located in the middle of Manhattan, New York, the world’s largest economic and cultural center. We hope you will find it a perfect place to discuss Artificial Life, the intellectual melting pot that mixes biology, computation, technology, art, philosophy, and more!!
ALIFE 14 accepts submissions in either full paper (8 pages) or extended abstract (2 pages) format. More information about formatting and submission instructions will be available at the conference website. Instructions for workshop/tutorial proposals will also be available on the site.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following aspects of Artificial Life:
Bio-inspired and evolutionary robotics
Self-replication, self-repair and morphogenesis
Artificial chemistry and cellular automata
Perception, cognition and behavior
Embodied, interactive systems
Collective dynamics of swarms
Complex dynamical networks
Ecological and social dynamics
Economy/society/social media as living systems
Methodologies and tools for artificial life
Applications to nanotechnology, biology or medicine
Applications to business and finance
Applications to games and entertainment
Artificial life-based art
Philosophical and ethical issues
Artificial life and education
Paper/abstract submission deadline: March 31, 2014
