## Description ##

This workshop brings together researchers interested in the automatic
design of coordinated behaviors in decentralized collective systems,
putting the emphasis on evolutionary robotics techniques. The goal of this
workshop is to provide an updated perspective of this field, both from a
theoretical and practical perspective, and to consider different areas of
applicability for such techniques including design for engineering and
modeling for biology.

This workshop encourages collaboration between researchers already present
at GECCO, or in other similar venues such as the Artificial Life or
Distributed Robotics conferences, which are not always present at the same

As long as the evolutionary aspect is emphasize, keywords describing the
topic are:
- collective and swarm robotics
- social behaviors (cooperation, division of labor)
- embodied evolution
- social learning
- real-world applications

## When/where? ##

July 15th or 16th 2017, at GECCO 2017, the Genetic and Evolutionary
Computation Conference, Berlin, Germany.

## Important dates ##

Submission deadline: March 31st, 2017
Authors notification: April 7th, 2017
Camera-ready submission: May 4th, 2017

## Paper Submission ##

We accept papers of two types:
- Presentation of on-going (or finished) work
- Summary of already published research (e.g. journal or conference papers
-- please include citation to the original work)

Each accepted paper will be presented orally at the workshop (10 minutes
for talk, 5 minutes for Q/A). Authors should follow the same format as is
used for the GECCO conference papers, and submissions should be *maximum 2
pages*. Please refer to https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__gecco-2D2017.sigevo.org_i&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=voeoJsUT70kd5sQjyD0hD69a1rXs98JLVQjawxz3h8w&s=gyBbjlvJlO88i2Zpp1QQieZHwjO4TJRaKAUGEWu4z8I&e=

submitted exclusively in PDF format to evocobots(at)isir.upmc.fr.

## Workshop agenda ##
