Scope of the Conference

The objective of this interdisciplinary conference is to bring together researchers in computer science, artificial intelligence, artificial life, control, robotics, eurosciences, 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.

Location

Cergy-Pontoise University, close to Paris, France

Workshops & tutorials

The SAB2020 organising committee invites proposals for workshops and tutorials, which will be held on the 21st of September, 2020. Instructions for preparing the tutorial proposal and further details on the tutorials will be found at http://www.sab2020.sciencesconf.org

Relevant Research Areas

SAB2020 solicits contributions dealing with any aspect of adaptive behaviour 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 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
  • 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
