Call for papers for the 16th International Conference on the Simulation of Adaptive Behavior (SAB2020) 

that will be held at Cergy-Paris University (near Paris), France 
22-24 september 2020 + workshops day 21st 


*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 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 including robot models, computer simulation models and 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. 

Cergy-Paris University, close to Paris, France 

*Relevant Research Areas* 
SAB2020 solicits contributions dealing with any aspect of adaptive behavior in natural and artificial systems. Typical, but not exclusive, topics of interest are: 

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 
Collective and social behavior 
Applied adaptive behavior 
Motivation and emotion 
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 
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. 

*Important Dates* 
The conference will be held between 22-24 Sep 2020 
and the 21st of September will be dedicated to workshops and tutorials
