Call for Papers
SIMULATION OF ADAPTIVE BEHAVIOR: FROM ANIMALS TO ANIMATS
An International Conference to be held in Paris
September 24-28, 1990
The object of the conference is to bring together researchers in
ethology, ecology, cybernetics, artificial intelligence, robotics,
and related fields so as to further our understanding of the behaviors
and underlying mechanisms that allow animals and, potentially,
robots to adapt and survive in uncertain environments.
The conference will focus particularly on simulation models in
order to help characterize and compare various organizational principles
or architectures capable of inducing adaptive behavior in real or
Contact among scientists from diverse disciplines should contribute
to better appreciation of each other's approaches and vocabularies,
to cross-fertilization of fundamental and applied research, and
to defining objectives, constraints, and challenges for future work.
Contributions treating any of the following topics from the
perspective of adaptive behavior will receive special emphasis.
Individual and collective behaviors Autonomous robots
Action selection and behavioral Hierarchical and parallel organizations
sequences Self organization of behavioral
Conditioning, learning and induction modules
Neural correlates of behavior Problem solving and planning
Perception and motor control Goal directed behavior
Motivation and emotion Neural networks and classifier
Behavioral ontogeny systems
Cognitive maps and internal Emergent structures and behaviors
Authors are requested to send two copies (hard copy only) of a
full paper to each of the Conference chairmen:
