The ECAL 2013 conference is pleased to give artificial life researchers the opportunity to organize satellite workshops and tutorials
in two "bookend" sessions, on the first day (Monday 2 September) and last afternoon (Friday 6 September). Workshops are dedicated to
the same general topics
as the main conference, while allowing for more focused interactions among participants.
The internal organization of the satellite workshops and tutorials (website, paper submission, invited talks, proceedings, all deadlines except
registration) is entirely left up to their respective organizers. ECAL provides the onsite logistics (seminar rooms, projectors, coffee breaks,
and lunch boxes) and links from the main conference website . All other organizational issues - including separate review process
and proceedings publication, if any - are taken care of by the workshop chairs. Therefore, any workshop-specific requests from participants
should be exclusively addressed to them, not to the ECAL committee.
ECAL also offers attendees the possibility of a special reduced registration rate
for anyone who wishes to come to these sessions only
(Monday 2 and/or Friday 6 afternoon), but not to the main conference.
Workshop paper submission
To submit a paper to a satellite workshop, if it offers this possibility, click on the corresponding workshop link below and follow the instructions
displayed on its website. Workshops organize their own deadlines, review process and proceedings publication, if any, independently from the
main conference. Workshop contributions (whether reviewed or invited, full papers or abstracts) will not be part of the ECAL 2013 proceedings
with MIT Press.

The ECAL 2013 Organising Committee invites proposals for workshops to
be held in conjunction with ECAL 2013. The workshops are intended to
be forums to present and discuss new approaches, visions, or critical
reflections within a subfield. They provide an excellent opportunity
to meet people with similar interests, to be exposed to cutting-edge
research and to exchange ideas in an informal setting. The organizers
of an accepted workshop are responsible for its coordination, for its
publicity (e.g., for sending out call for papers/abstracts), for
collecting and reviewing the papers/abstracts, and for maintaining a
webpage providing a list of accepted talks. The workshops can be half
day or a full day long. The format can be decided by the organizers
who are encouraged to plan interactive sessions.
Prospective workshop organizers are invited to submit a plain text
workshop proposal by email to:
The workshop proposal should include:
- Title of the workshop;
- Brief description of the workshop topics;
- Potential target participants and audience;
- Roughly approximated number of participants;
- Rough estimate of the number of talks;
- Duration: half day or a full day;
- Contact details and a short CV of the organizer(s).
