FROM ANIMALS TO ANIMATS 10

The 10th International Conference
on the SIMULATION OF ADAPTIVE BEHAVIOR (SAB'08)
7-12 July 2008, Osaka, Japan
http://sab08.org

ORGANIZING COMMITTEE

General Chair: Minoru Asada
PC Chair: Jun Tani
General Co-Chairs: John Hallam, Jean-Arcady Meyer

IMPORTANT DATES

Call for workshop deadline, Februay 1st, 2008
FIRM Paper submission deadline, January 14th, 2008
Conference dates, July 7-10, 2008
Workshops date, July 11-12, 2008

The objective of this interdisciplinary conference is to bring together
researchers in computer science, artificial intelligence, alife, control,
robotics, neurosciences, ethology, evolutionary biology, and related fields
so as to further our understanding of the behaviors and underlying
mechanisms that allow natural and artificial animals to adapt and survive in
uncertain environments. The conference will focus on experiments with
well-defined models --- robot models, computer simulation models,
mathematical models --- designed to help characterize and compare various
organizational principles or architectures underlying adaptive behavior in
real animals and in synthetic agents, the animats.

Authors should make every effort to suggest implications of their work
for both natural and artificial animals, and to distinguish the
portions of their work which use simulation from those using a
physical agent.  Papers that do not deal explicitly with adaptive
behavior will be rejected.

CONFERENCE FORMAT:

Following the tradition of SAB conferences, the conference will be single
track, with additional poster sessions. Each poster session will start with
poster spotlights giving presenters the opportunity to orally present their
main results.

PUBLISHER:

Springer Lecture Notes on Artificial Intelligence.  Both oral and
poster presentations will be published in conference proceedings.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS:

Papers, of maximum length 10 pages, must be submitted in PDF format
using the web entry system https://www.softconf.com/starts/sab08/
