ALife XV: The Fifteenth International Conference on the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems will take place in Cancun, Mexico, on July 4-8, 2016.
The deadline for paper and abstract submissions was extended to February 29th. This extension is final. All accepted contributions will be published by MIT Press as open online proceedings. There are two submission options: Full papers (8 pages) should report on new, unpublished work. Extended abstracts (2 pages) can report on previously published work, but offer a new perspective on that work. Submitted or novel work is also acceptable for abstracts.
Accepted works will be selected as oral or poster presentations.
Submissions can be made also for a Special Session on ALife and Society. The Call for Artworks is out. Accepted Workshops and Tutorials will be announced soon.
We are happy to announce that our keynote speakers cover a wide variety of topics and include Randall Beer, Ezequiel Di Paolo, Stuart Kauffman, Francisco C. Santos, Linda Smith and Antonio Lazcano. We are also honored to have an artistic premier by Ken Rinaldo, whose artworks have extensively explored the intersection of life and technology.
