Artificial life (AL) refers to models and simulations of living systems, as they appear in nature as well as to possible alternative life forms and concepts that may not have occurred in natural evolution. Computational Intelligence (CI) developed from the traditional fields of artificial intelligence into various areas of nature inspired computing and optimisation. It is often referred to as an umbrella for the areas of evolutionary computation, artificial neural networks, fuzzy systems and other learning systems. While AL attempts to understand nature through modelling and simulation, CI attempts to translate this understanding into algorithms for learning and optimisation.
ACALCI features international research in AL and CI and aims at becoming an exciting forum for innovative, emerging, cross-disciplinary and sometimes exotic ideas associated with the computational and algorithmic concepts underlying living and intelligent systems. The focus is on software-based and agent-based forms of artificial life but may also include computational aspects of synthetic life. Artificial life concepts can occur on sub-cellular, cellular, cell assembly/network, organism, or society levels.
