      First CALL FOR PAPERS: ECAL 2013

      ECAL 2013, European Conference on Artificial Life,
      an International Conference on the Simulation and Synthesis of Living Systems

      2-6 September 2013, Taormina, Italy


      Artificial Life is an interdisciplinary undertaking that investigates
      the fundamental properties of living systems through the simulation
      and synthesis of biological entities and processes. It also attempts
      to design and build artificial systems that display properties of
      organisms, or societies of organisms, out of abiotic or virtual parts.

      Researchers are invited to submit original work in the field of
      artificial life, synthetic biology, living systems, and complex
      systems as papers of not more than 8 pages. Papers must be submitted
      as PDF files. The authors' names shall not be blinded for the
      reviewing process. Papers must be submitted in MIT Press style through
      the conference homepage:


      ** You are invited to submit papers (full and abstract) to this

      Detailed information concerning the formatting guidelines, templates,
      online submission process, and proceedings can be found
      at http://www.dmi.unict.it/ecal2013/callpapers.php

      There are two options for submission: either *full paper* or
      *abstract*. Note that the format is exactly the same for both options.
      The only difference resides in the number of pages and type of contents:

      1. Full papers have an *8-page* maximum length and should report on
      new, unpublished work

      2. Abstracts are limited to a *2-page* length and should discuss work
      previously published in a journal. It is therefore essential that a
      reference to the previous article is clearly cited in the abstract.

      All submissions will be subject to peer review, and all accepted
      submissions will be allocated either an oral presentation slot or a
      poster slot with no distinction being made between the two submission
      options (full paper or abstract).

      Every accepted full-paper and abstract, which was submitted to the
      main conference (not the satellite workshops), will be published by
      MIT Press in a single online open-access proceedings volume.

      The top 10 accepted publications will have the opportunity to publish
      a revised and expanded version of their conference paper in the
      Artificial Life journal (TBC).

      The conference will be held at the Taormina

      We look forward to seeing you in Taormina!

      Best wishes,
       Pietro Lio', Orazio Miglino, Giuseppe Nicosia, Stefano Nolfi, and
      Mario Pavone - ECAL 2013 Chairs.
