                     *Scope of the Conference*

The objective of this interdisciplinary conference is to bring together
researchers in computer science, artificial intelligence, artificial
life, control, robotics, neurosciences, ethology, evolutionary biology
and related fields in order to further our understanding of the
behaviours 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 including robot
models, computer simulation models and mathematical models designed to
help characterise and compare various organisational principles or
architectures underlying adaptive behaviour in real animals and in
synthetic agents, the animats.

                     *Relevant Research Areas*

SAB2018 solicits contributions dealing with any aspect of adaptive
behaviour in natural and artificial systems. Typical, but not
exclusive, topics of interest are:

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

                       *Conference Format*

Following the tradition of SAB conferences, the conference will be
single track with additional poster sessions. There will also be a
day of tutorials (14th of August).

       *Paper Submission Instruction and Publication Details*

Submitted papers must not exceed 12 pages.

Please, refer to the link https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.sab2018.org_submit&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=Zc9jOdxPephMpB-laEzozvcXAkQpgEcrJcBIFbmXSLA&s=V5JhQS7-d6AMNoTBeLqOsQy9uF_rdmqyS5ekg8H9RKY&e=  for detailed submission instructions
Please submit papers via the conference EasyChair web site: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__easychair.org_conferences_-3Fconf-3Dsab2018&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=Zc9jOdxPephMpB-laEzozvcXAkQpgEcrJcBIFbmXSLA&s=aiK3GQazAmbaW_stN-Z7vpa7fuaE48wKMTn4ZTK6iTk&e=

All accepted papers with oral or poster  presentation will be published in
Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series conference proceedings.
Selected authors may additionally be invited to submit extended versions
for a conference Special Issue of the Journal of Adaptive Behavior.


The SAB 2018 organising committee invites proposals for tutorials, which will be held on the 14th August 2018.

Tutorials/Workshops should be about topics of interest to the main conference (see above) and could cover well established techniques or new ideas. They could also have a practical aspect, if this can be organised.
To submit a tutorial/workshop idea, please write up to two sides of A4 describing the content of the tutorial/workshop, what participants can expect to get from attending (i.e. learning outcomes), and a brief biography justifying why you are the right people to deliver it.  In addition, you should specify what you would need us to provide to run the tutorial/workshop (computers, software, hardware, network, etc.) and how many people you could cater for.
Please send your proposal here: jcla at mmmi.sdu.dk<mailto:jcla at mmmi.sdu.dk>

                       *Exhibition Section*

During SAB2018 there will be an exhibition section, where latest
developments in hardware and software technologies will be displayed
to the conference attendees and the Press.
