CfP: Australasian Conference on Artificial Life and Computational Intelligence (ACALCI 2015), 5-7 February 2015, The University of Newcastle, Australia


DESCRIPTION: While Artificial Life (AL) attempts to understand nature through modelling and simulation, Computational Intelligence (CI) attempts to translate this understanding into algorithms for learning and optimisation. The Australasian Conference on Artificial Life and Computational Intelligence (ACALCI 2015) features international research in AL and CI and provides a forum for innovative, interdisciplinary research associated with the computational concepts underlying living and intelligent systems.

SCOPE: ACALCI 2015 will be organised in broad technical sessions that bring together experts from different fields in AL, CI and associated areas. The forum also hopes to encourage ALCI applied research in domains as diverse as health, the creative arts and finance (to name a few). ACALCI encourages presentations, demonstrations, performances and discussions on new innovative research and interdisciplinary projects. Invited are high-quality papers relevant to AL or CI where the topics of interest include but are not limited to: Adaptive Ecologies, Affective Computing, ALCI in Design and Music, Ant Colony Optimisation, Applications of ALCI, Autonomous Agents, Architecture and ALCI, Artificial Neural Networks, Artificial Societies and Markets, Augmented and Virtual Realities, Big Data, Bioinformatics, BCIs, Braintheory, Chatbots, Cognitive Neuroscience, Complex Systems, Computational Neuroscience, Consciousness and Mind, Creative Arts and CI, Data Mining, Deep Learning, Developmental Learning, Digital Societies, Dimensionality Reduction, Embodiment and Robotics, Emergence of Collaborative Behaviour, Emotional AI, Engineering of Consciousness and Mind, Epidemiology Simulations, Ethics and Security in CI, Evolutionary Computation, Evolutionary Design, Facial Expression Analysis, Game Playing Agents, Human-Machine Interaction, Humanities and ALCI, Humanoid Robots, Implementation Techniques, Information Theoretic Learning, Intelligent Home Automation, Language Processing, Machine Learning, Mathematical Models, Medical Image Analysis, Memetic Algorithms, Metalearning, Models of Emotions, Multi-Agent Systems, Non-player Game Characters, Pattern Recognition, Philosophy of Artificial Life, Reservoir Computing, Self-Organisation, Simulation and Modelling, Smart Grid Techniques, Social Networks and ALCI, Statistical Learning Theory, Swarm Algorithms, Synthetic Life Computations, Visual Information Processing.

SUBMISSION and PRESENTATION: Authors are invited to submit papers that have between 6 and 14 pages in Springer LNAI style<http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0> including results, figures and references. Longer papers up to 20 pages can be considered in exceptional cases. All relevant papers will be fully peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers from the ACALCI 2015 International Program Committee before acceptance for publication in the proceedings. It is expected that submitted manuscripts are original and have neither been published nor submitted for publication elsewhere. The submitted papers and all their underlying research must comply with the professional standards of the discipline.
All accepted papers that are presented at the conference would be published in the ACALCI 2015 proceedings as a LNAI volume by Springer-Verlag. The LNAI volumes are indexed by the following services: Scopus, Zentralblatt MATH, IO-Port, MathSciNet, ACM Digital Library, dblp, EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases), and the ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S), included in ISI Web of Science.
It is planned to run the conference for three days as a single stream of high quality presentations with attached poster sessions, demonstrations and performances. In exceptional cases where an author cannot travel, a presentation (poster or oral) via skype or video conferencing can be organised.

LOCATION and VENUE: The University of Newcastle Conservatorium of Music Concert Hall, Newcastle, Australia. This is a stylish venue about 2.5 hours north of Sydney. Williamtown Airport is a 25 minute taxi/car drive away. It is close to several hotels, YHA, and the beautiful Newcastle beaches.
