I found two references to conference papers; however, only the abstracts
were published.  These are:

Ray, T. S., "Artificial life: Ecology and evolution in digital
organisms," 75th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of
America on Perspectives in Ecology: Past, Present, and Future,
Snowbird, Utah, July 29-August 2, 1990.  Published in Bulletin
of the Ecological Society of America, v. 71 (2 suppl.),
1990.  Ray abstract on p. 295-296.

Ray, T. S., "Artificial life: Ecology and evolution in digital
organisms," Fourth International Congress of Systematic and Evolutionary
Biology; College Park, MD, July 1-7, 1990, sponsored by University
of Maryland and The Smithsonian Institute, p. 74.
