      *** PROCEEDINGS PUBLISHED by Springer LNCS ***

      Call for Papers

      EvoROBOT 2014,

      Granada, Spain, 23-25 April 2014

      Evolutionary Computation in Robotics

      The EvoROBOT track is part of EvoApplications, the European Conference on the Applications of Evolutionary Computation (http://www.evostar.org/), to be held in Granada, Spain.

      The EvoROBOT track focusses on evolutionary robotics: the application of evolutionary computation techniques to automatically design the controllers and/or hardware of autonomous robots, real or simulated. This is by nature a multi-faceted field that combines approaches from other fields such as neuro-evolution, evolutionary design, artificial life, robotics, et cetera.

      We invite high quality contributions dealing with state-of-the-art research in the area of evolutionary robotics.

      Topics include but are not limited to:

      Evolution of (neural) robot controllers;

      Evolution of modular robot morphology;

      Hardware/morphology and controller co-evolution;

      Open-ended evolution in robotics;

      Robotic evolutionary Artificial Life;

      Evolutionary self-assembly and self-replication;

      Evolution, development and learning;

      Evolutionary and co-evolutionary approaches.

      Important Dates


      Submission deadline:     01 November 2013

      Notification to authors: December 2013

      Camera-ready deadline:   January 2013

      EvoStar event            23-25 April 2014  

      Publication Details


      Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of EvoStar, published as Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

      Submission Details


      Submissions must be novel and original. Submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the program committee and authors of accepted papers are required to address the reviewer's comments to produce a camera-ready version of their manuscripts. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and attend the conference to present their work.

      The reviewing process will be double-blind and any information that may identify the authors should be removed from the initial submission. Please submit your contribution to EvoROBOT in Springer LNCS format at http://myreview.csregistry.org/evoapps14. The page limit is 12 pages.
