      CALL FOR PAPER  -  GECCO 2013  -  ALIFE/ER track
      Artificial Life, Evolutionary Robotics, Evolvable Hardware


      Artificial Life, Evolutionary Robotics, Evolvable Hardware (ALIFE/ER TRACK)
      2013 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2013)
      July 6-10, Amsterdam, Netherlands -- http://www.sigevo.org/gecco-2013/

      You are cordially invited to contribute to the Artificial Life / Evolutionary Robotics
      Track at GECCO 2013, the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference
      to take place in Amsterdam(Netherlands), 7-11 July 2013.

      This track promotes evolutionary computation and bio-inspired heuristics as
      instruments able to face engineering problems and scientific questions in different
      areas that include (but are not limited to): artificial life, evolutionary robotics, and
      evolvable hardware.

      Artificial life studies artificial systems (software, hardware, or chemical) with properties
      similar to those of living systems. There are two main complementary goals: to
      better understand living systems and to use this understanding to build artificial
      systems with properties of living systems, such as behavior, adaptability, evolvability,
      active perception, communication, self-organization and cognition. This track also
      welcomes models of problem-solving through (social) agent interaction, emergence of
      collective phenomena and models of the dynamics of ecological interactions in an
      evolutionary context.

      Evolutionary computation techniques can be particularly useful for a large branch of
      robotics. The evolution of controllers, morphologies, sensors, and communication
      protocols is being used to build systems to provide robust, adaptive and scalable
      solutions to different problems in robotics. This track welcomes contributions
      addressing problems from control to morphology, from single robot to collective
      adaptive systems. Contributions are expected to deal explicitly with Evolutionary
      Computation, with experiments either in simulation or with real robots.

      The term evolvable hardware has been used in the past to denote both the design of
      electronic devices able to evolve themselves, and the generic exploitation of evolutionary
      techniques for creating hardware. While the first task sounds ambitious, the second is
      routinely applied by industries. Contributions in this area are expected to show either real
      and potential applications.
