Evolutionary Computation in Robotics

The EvoROBOT track focusses, as the name implies, 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.

Areas of Interest and Contributions

Topics include but are not limited to:

Publication Details

Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of EvoStar, published as Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Submission Details

Submissions must be novel and original. Submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the program committee and authors of accepted papers are required to address the reviewer's comments to produce a camera-ready version of their manuscripts. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and attend the conference to present their work.

The reviewing process will be double-blind and any information that may identify the authors should be removed from the initial submission. Please submit your contribution to EvoROBOT in Springer LNCS format. at http://myreview.csregistry.org/evoapps13. The page limit is 10 pages.
