ALIFE 2018 - The 2018 Conference on Artificial Life

Description

WHAT IS ALIFE 2018:A HYBRID OF ECAL AND ALIFE

The ALIFE and ECAL conferences are the major meeting of the artificial life research community since 1987 and 1991, respectively. As a Hybrid of the European Conference on Artificial Life (ECAL) and the International Conference on the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems (ALIFE), the 2018 Conference on Artificial Life (ALIFE 2018) will take place in outside both Europe and the US, in Miraikan, Tokyo, Japan, from July 23-27.


THEME:BEYOND AI

The ALIFE 2018 conference will be a stimulating home for a rich and diverse research community in Artificial Life and related fields from around the world, with a special emphasis on encouraging communication and building bridges between the different research threads that make Artificial Life such an exciting field. Following in the tradition of recent artificial life conferences, the meeting will also have an overall theme that reflects the global nature of the first joint conference: Beyond AI. We believe that AI is just a side effect of ALIFE and we believe that this conference is going to be a turning point for both ALIFE and AI researchers.
We are inviting especially contributions to solve new challenges in ALife. Since the first ALife conference in 1987, the computational landscape has been completely reshaped in terms of scale, means, capacity, and spheres of application in our society. The use of massive real-world data has now the potential to offer an important new avenue for ALife, to help us understand the nature of living systems by understanding bridges between simple idealized models and complex data-rich phenomena. An epistemology for a modern artificial life that can operate at scale and in partnership with data, but without sacrificing the complexity of the systems that we observe, has yet to be achieved.
