CFP: Artificial Life 2016, Cancun, Mexico

First call for papers and extended abstracts

 

Dear friends and colleagues,

The Fifteenth International Conference on the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems will be held in Cancun, Mexico on July 4th-8th. 2016.

ALife 2016 will showcase a wide range of topics in Artificial Life, bringing together world-leading researchers to discuss the latest advances in Artificial Life. Topics include (but are not restricted to), Evolutionary Robotics, Synthetic Biology, Evolutionary Dynamics, Computational Biology, Systems Neuroscience, Bioethics, Evolutionary Programming, Genetic Algorithms, Biological Engineering, Dynamic Approaches to Cognition, Artificial Neural Networks, and more.

The ALife 2016 Program Committee invites the submission of papers describing your best work in Artificial Life and related fields. Given the interdisciplinary nature of our field, work in all of the spectrum of sciences and humanities is welcome, considering the main conference themes of simulation and synthesis of living systems.

The submission deadline for extended abstracts and full papers is February 14th, 2016. Each submission to ALife 2016 will be rigorously evaluated in a double blind review process. Full papers will be reviewed for relevance, scientific, engineering, and/or philosophical quality, sound methodology and use of appropriate analysis techniques. Extended abstracts will be reviewed for relevance and quality. Accepted contributions will be published by MIT Press in open online proceedings.

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

  • Full papers have an 8-page maximum length and should report on new, unpublished work.
  • Extended abstracts are limited to two pages and can report on previously published work, but offer a new perspective on that work.

Important dates:

Submission of papers or abstracts: February 16th, 2016

Notifications: March 25, 2016

Camera-ready versions April 24th, 2016
