Artificial Life is an interdisciplinary undertaking that investigates the fundamental properties
of living systems through the simulation and synthesis of biological entities and processes. It also
attempts to design and build artificial systems that display properties of organisms, or societies of
organisms, out of abiotic or virtual parts.
ECAL, the European Conference on Artificial Life, is a biennial event that alternates with the
US-based Alife conference series.
