      7th European Conference on Artificial Life


      September 14-17, 2003
      Dortmund, Germany
      Submission deadline: March 1st, 2003

      The seventh European Conference on Artificial Life
      (ECAL-2003) will bring together scientists and
      engineers from different disciplines such as Physics,
      Computer Science, Life and Social Sciences and all
      types of engineering in a common attempt to
      investigate complex systems from the class we call
      living systems. Application of Alife technology in
      different fields will provide another important topic
      of the conference.

      Following the past highly successful ECAL in Prague,
      ECAL-2003 will be held in Germany for the first time.
      With the advent of powerful simulation tools ECAL-2003
      is a primary meeting place for exchange of ideas on
      understanding and simulating life.

      The conference will be held in Dortmund, Germany, in
      an old industrial building now turned museum for
      social and cultural history of the region.
