The 6th International Conference on Soft Computing and Intelligent Systems
The 13th International Symposium on Advanced Intelligent Systems

Organized Session

Artificial Life

Nov. 20-24th 2012, Kobe, Japan

What's new


Artificial Life (ALife) is an interdisciplinary field of research that aims to understand and apply emergent dynamics of biological systems by synthesizing life-like behaviors using artificial media such as computers, robots, molecules, and so on. Especially, ALife studies have contributed to reconsider essential concepts in various biological, social, and artificial systems such as emergence and evolution of individuality, development, cognition, communication, language, cooperation, biological/social relationships, and so on, which are not straightforward to discuss using reductionism approaches.

The aim of this special session is to review latest experimental, theoretical, and computational studies around ALife fields from both scientific and engineering perspectives, and to provide an interdisciplinary forum to exchange novel ideas among researchers.


 Topics of interest include, but not limited to, the following areas from both scientific and engineering perspectives:


Oral presentation (on-site)


Authors are invited to prepare full papers of four (4) to six (6) pages (maybe extended up to eight (8) pages but subject to an additional fee) in IEEE style including results, figures, and references. All full papers should be submitted online.


 All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and archived in IEEE Xplore.
