Call for Papers
***********

Submission deadline: April 9, 2007 | www.ecal2007.org

Artificial Life aims at the study of all phenomena characteristic of natural
living systems, 
through methodologies of synthesis implemented in computational, robotic or
other artificial 
architectures. Its wide scope ranges from the investigation of how life or
life-like properties 
develop from inorganic components to how cognitive processes emerge in
natural or artificial  
systems. The ″European″, in European Conference on Artificial Life - ECAL,
merely refers to the 
conference location, but participation is worldwide. In this ECAL we
envisage maintaining and 
enlarging this worldwide scope and want to emphatically encourage novelty
and daring ideas, 
particularly amongst young researchers. We welcome both technical and
conceptual papers, 
in all areas of the field, including but not restricted to:
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 the
boundaries, the dynamical systems approach, 
agency, homeostasis and autopoiesis, sensorimotor coordination,
action-perception loops; 
Morphogenesis and Development: artificial systems, natural systems;
Learning, 
Adaptive Behaviour and Evolution: learning and development, learning and
evolution; Social Behavior: 
language, social interaction, communication, swarm intelligence, ant
systems; A-Life Art; 
Epistemological Issues, Tools and Methodologies: modeling in A-life,
synthetic vs analytic models; 
Philosophical Issues; Ethical and Social Issues; 

·  Proceedings Publication:
All the papers accepted for talks or poster presentations will be published
by Springer in the LNCS/LNAI series 

·  Format and submissions:
Papers must not exceed 10 pages in the Springer format and should be
submitted as a pdf file, through the ECAL2007 
website automated submission system. More instructions, namely about the
camera-ready version format can be 
find in the Springer page for authors at www.springer.com/lncs or in the
conference website [check the ″Submissions″ 
and ″Proceedings″ pages].
 
·  Questions:
Questions about submissions or reviewing must be emailed to:
submissions from ecal2007.org For all the information 
on the conference, check the website at www.ecal2007.org
