Evolutionary Computation in Robotics
Due to a large number of request for late submissions, the EvoStar submission sites will stay open until this Tuesday 15 November 23:59:59 SST, after which no further submissions will be accepted. Authors who have already submitted, can update their work until this time.
The EvoROBOT track focusses on evolutionary robotics: the application of evolutionary computation techniques to automatically design the controllers and/or hardware of autonomous robots, real or simulated. This is by nature a multi-faceted field that combines approaches from other fields such as neuro-evolution, evolutionary design, artificial life, robotics, et cetera.
We seek high quality contributions dealing with state-of-the-art research in the area of evolutionary robotics.
Topics include but are not limited to:
- Evolution of (neural) robot controllers;
- Evolution of modular robot morphology;
- Hardware/morphology and controller co-evolution;
- Open-ended evolution in robotics;
- Robotic evolutionary Artificial Life;
- Evolutionary self-assembly and self-replication;
- Evolution, development and learning;
- Evolutionary and co-evolutionary approaches.
Best paper award
Frontiers in Robotics and AI is offering the best paper award at the upcoming EvoROBOT track in EvoApplications.
The Evolutionary Robotics specialty grants the winner a full waiver of the publication fee for
the submission of an extended version of the work presented at EvoROBOT in Amsterdam this year. Naturally, the final decision to publish the extended version
will be made adhering to the Frontiers policies of originality and review.
