      ALEA 2013
      Artificial Life and Evolutionary Algorithms
      (ALEA is a thematic track of EPIA 2013)

      September 9-13, 2013
      Azores - Portugal

      Submission deadline:
      March 15, 2013

      ALEA is dedicated to the theory and applications of Artificial Life and
      Evolutionary Algorithms. It has been a track of the biennial
      international EPIA conferences since 2003, aiming to bring together
      researchers and practitioners from different backgrounds and domains,
      and providing a pleasant venue for the fruitful discussion of current
      developments and applications.

      --> This year ALEA will take place in the Azores,
      beautiful portuguese islands in the Mid-Atlantic:

      ALEA invites contributions in all aspects related to Artificial Life and
      Evolutionary Algorithms, ranging from theoretical work to innovative
      applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
      - Artificial Chemistries
      - Artificial Immune Systems
      - Classifier Systems
      - Complex Networks
      - Emergent Behaviours
      - Evolution and Learning Dynamics
      - Evolutionary Algorithms
      - Evolutionary Optimization
      - Evolutionary Robotics
      - Genetic Programming
      - Hybrid Approaches
      - Multi-objective Optimization
      - Origins of Life
      - Parallel Evolutionary Algorithms
      - Self-organizing Systems
      - Swarm Intelligence

      Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. Please note
      that ALEA only accepts full papers (not short 6-page papers or 4-page
      demonstrations). Papers should not exceed 12 pages in length and must be
      formatted according to Springer’s LNCS instructions for authors. Papers
      must be submitted in PDF and will not be accepted in any other format.
      Papers that exceed 12 pages or do not follow the LNCS guidelines risk
      being rejected automatically without a review. More information and
      templates of the LNCS format is available on this Springer website:

      The submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the
      Programme Committee. The reviewing process is double blind, so authors
      should remove names and affiliations from the submitted papers, and must
      take reasonable care not to indirectly disclose their identity.
      References to own work can be included in the paper, but should be
      referred to in the third person.

      The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the
      basis of the recommendations from the reviewers and will be asked to
      send a camera ready version of their manuscripts. Even though the
      submissions can be made in PDF (preferable) or PS, we encourage authors
      to prepare their papers in TEX or LATEX because these are more
      convenient source formats for the camera ready final version. At least
      one author of each accepted work must register for the conference and
      present the work.

      Accepted papers will be presented orally or as posters. The best
      accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by Springer in
      the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI), a subseries of
      LNCS. The remaining accepted papers will be published in a local
      edition, both in hard-copy, CD-ROM and on the web.

      Important Dates:
      - Paper submission: March 15
      - Acceptance notifications: April 30
      - Camera-ready papers: May 31
      - ALEA 2013: September 9-13
