SAB2004: calls for participation and abstracts (ext'd deadline)

-----SAB2004 Call for participation and abstracts (ext'd deadline)-----
SAB2004, From Animals to Animats 8, The Eighth International Conference
on the Simulation of Adaptive Behavior
Santa Monica (Los Angeles), July 13-17 2004 /
----- Call for participation -----
The objective of this interdisciplinary conference is to bring together researchers in computer science, artificial intelligence, alife, control, robotics, neurosciences, ethology, and related fields so as to further our understanding of the behaviors and underlying mechanisms that allow natural and artificial animals to adapt and survive in uncertain environments. The conference will focus on experiments with well-defined models --- robot models, computer simulation models, mathematical models --- designed to help characterize and compare various organizational principles or architectures underlying adaptive behavior in real animals and in synthetic agents, the animats.
The preliminary technical program can be found at /
See for registration and more details.
-----Call for abstracts for the Last-Minute-Results poster session-----
SAB2004 introduces a new feature: the Last-Minute-Results poster session (July 9th, extended deadline).
This special session will offer researchers in Adaptive Behavior the opportunity to present their most recent results at SAB2004 ( /). The goal of this session is to provide an informal setting in which participants can reveal and discuss their latest results and developments at the time of the conference (13-17 July 2004).
Researchers are invited to submit a two-page abstract describing recent results/developments. Abstracts should be sent electronically as a PDF file to the conference general email address,, with "Last Minute Results" in the email Subject line.
The call for abstracts is open to all (i.e. to people both with and without an accepted paper at the conference). There is a limit of one abstract/poster per participant as a first author. After review by the conference chairs, authors of accepted abstracts will be allowed to present their results as a poster in a special Last-Minute-Results session. Note that the abstracts will not be considered as publications and will not be included in the conference proceedings. This also means that you keep the abstracts' copyrights.
July 9th: Abstract submission deadline (but note that there is a limited number of slots, and that posters will be accepted after a short review on a first come, first served basis)
July 13-17 2004: SAB'04 conference
