    *********************************************************************

    ECAL2005, in September, will host a workshop on
    "Active agents and their environments as dynamical systems" organised
    by the activate.d reading group from the University of Sussex.

    We are seeking papers within the broad range of the so called dynamical
    systems approach to life and cognition, from both technical and
    conceptual/philosophical perspectives.

    Contacts are underway to publish the papers in the Journal of Adaptive
    Behavior.

    You may find detailed information about the workshop in our webpage at
    www.informatics.sussex.ac.uk/users/eji21/activate.d/[email protected]
    or through the workshop webpage at www.ecal2005.org/workshops.html

    IMPORTANT DATES
    *****************

    Submission deadline: 20th of May
    Review results: 15th of June
    Corrected papers due: 22nd of June

    Papers must be emailed in pdf format to one of the organisers (see
    addresses below) and will be reviewed by at least two independent
    reviewers, in compliance with the host conference rules.

    The work to be submitted may include (but is not limited to) topics such as:

    * Embodied cognition (the exploitation by a cognitive agent, qua
    cognitive, of all its physical properties).
    * Evolution of intrinsic and extrinsic morphologies in artificial
    agents.
    * Robotics within the framework of the DSaLC (Dynamical Systems
    approach to Life and Cognition).
    * Cognition as brain/body/environment interaction.
    * Online learning as dynamics occurring at different time scales.
    * Synthesis of dynamical systems models which exhibit adaptive
    behaviour.
    * Self-organisation, selection and neutrality in the evolution of
    dynamical systems.
    * Agency, homeostasis and autopoiesis.
    * The present dangers of the (conscious and unconscious) use of
    GOFAI principles within a DSaLC framework.
    * Dynamical systems tools for understanding adaptive behaviour.
    * Behavioural dynamics of interest to cognitive science (e.g.
    chaotic itinerancy, globally coupled chaotic systems).
    * Dynamical systems architectures (i.e. neural networks, cellular
    automata, other models) and their behavioural dynamics.
    * Models of dynamical systems coupling.

    Papers should be sent to either one of the workshop organisers:

    Fernando Almeida e Costa Eduardo Izquierdo-Torres
