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
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;
