FROM ANIMALS TO ANIMATS 11
The 11th International Conference on the SIMULATION OF ADAPTIVE BEHAVIOR 
(SAB2010)

24-28 August 2010, Paris, France

ORGANIZING COMMITTEE
Conference Chairs: Jean-Arcady Meyer, Agnès Guillot, John Hallam
Local Organizers : Stéphane Doncieux, Benoît Girard, Jean-Baptiste  Mouret

VENUE AND INVITED SPEAKERS

To celebrate the 20th birthday of the Animat Approach, the last day of 
the conference will be dedicated to invited talks dealing with "The past 
and future of the animat (and related) approach(es)", held (on a round 
trip) at Clos Lucé, last home of Leonardo Da Vinci.

Confirmed invited speakers:
Michael A. ARBIB
Rodney BROOKS

IMPORTANT DATES - PAPER & WORKSHOP CALLS STILL OPENED

Conference dates, August 25-28, 2010
Workshops date, August 24, 201

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
Autonomous, bio-inspired, and hybrid robotics
Autonomous robotics
Humanoid robotics
Cognitive developmental 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 orally 
present  their main results.

PUBLISHER:

Springer Lecture Notes on Artificial Intelligence. Both oral and poster 
presentations will be published in conference proceedings.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS:

Submitted papers must not exceed 10 pages.Detailed submission 
instructions are available from the conference Web site.
