                       Call for Papers

              Evolutionary Computation in Robotics

The EvoROBOT track is part of EvoApplications, the European Conference
on the Applications of Evolutionary Computation
(http://www.evostar.org/), to be held in Granada, Spain.

The EvoROBOT track focusses on evolutionary robotics: the application of
evolutionary computation techniques to automatically design the
controllers and/or hardware of autonomous robots, real or simulated.
This is by nature a multi-faceted field that combines approaches from
other fields such as neuro-evolution, evolutionary design, artificial
life, robotics, et cetera.

We invite high quality contributions dealing with state-of-the-art
research in the area of evolutionary robotics.

Topics include but are not limited to:

-Evolution of (neural or otherwise) robot controllers;
-Evolution of modular robot morphology;
-Hardware/morphology and controller co-evolution;
-Open-ended evolution in robotics;
-Robotic evolutionary Artificial Life;
-Evolutionary self-assembly and self-replication;
-Evolution, development and learning;
-Evolutionary and co-evolutionary approaches.

Important Dates
Submission Deadline:         15 November 2014
Notification:                07 January 2015
Camera-ready:                21 January 2015
EvoStar event:               8-10 April 2015

Publication Details
Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of EvoStar, published in
a volume of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science, which will
be available at the Conference.

Submission Details
Submissions must be novel and original. Submissions will be peer
reviewed by at least three members of the program committee and authors
of accepted papers are required to address the reviewer's comments to
produce a camera-ready version of their manuscripts if accepted. At
least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference
and attend the conference to present their work.

The reviewing process will be double-blind and any information that may
identify the authors should be removed from the initial submission.
Please submit your contribution to EvoROBOT in Springer LNCS format. The
page limit is 12 pages.
