      Artificial Life and Evolutionary Algorithms
      (ALEA is a thematic track of EPIA 2011)

      October 10-13, 2011
      Lisbon - Portugal

      *New* Submission deadline:
      --> May 17, 2011

      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 Lisbon,
      one of the most beautiful European capitals:

      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. Papers should not exceed fifteen (15) 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 15 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:
      - *New* Paper submission deadline: May 17
      - Acceptance notifications: June 10
      - Camera-ready papers: July 1
      - ALEA @ EPIA 2011: October 10-13
