EvoROBOT 2018

Evolutionary Computation in Robotics

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.
