IMPORTANT DATES
Call for workshops deadline: March 3rd, 2014

*Paper submission deadline:   February 10th, 2014*Conference dates:
   July 22nd-24th, 2014
Workshops dates:             July 27th and 28th, 2014


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.

Contributions treating any of the following topics from the perspective of
adaptive behavior will receive special emphasis:

The Animat approach
Motor control
Body and brain co-evolution
Self-assembling and self-replication
Sensory-motor coordination
Action selection and behavioral sequencing
Navigation and mapping
Internal models and representation
Evolution, development and learning
Motivation and emotion
Collective and social behavior
Communication and language
Emergent structures and behaviors
Neural correlates of behavior
Evolutionary and co-evolutionary approaches
Bio-inspired and hybrid robotics
Autonomous robotics
Humanoid robotics
Cognitive and developmental robotics
Embodiment and soft robotics
Software agents and virtual creatures
Applied adaptive behavior
Animats in education
Philosophical and psychological issues

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 present orally their main
results.

PUBLISHER:  Springer Lecture Notes on Artificial Intelligence.
Both oral and poster presentations will be published in the conference
proceedings.  Selected authors may additionally be invited to submit
extended
versions for a conference Special Issue of the Journal of Adaptive Behavior.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS:
Submitted papers must not exceed 10 pages.
Detailed submission instructions will be available from the conference Web
site.
