On august 19th to 23rd there will be a conference held at SDU, Odense, Denmark about artificial life arranged by the FLinT Centre or Centre for Fundamental Living Technology. This years theme is Critical Properties of Living Systems. This is what the official web site writes about the theme:
“The conference will be organized around the theme of identifying and synthesizing the critical properties of living and life-like systems (e.g., self-replication, self-assembly, self-organization, metabolism, adaptation, evolution). The meeting will reflect all of the main areas of artificial life research, including “wet” systems based on carbon chemistry, “soft” systems realized in software, and “hard” systems consisting of autonomous robotic agents, integration of the above areas, as well as a variety of social and technical systems that embody the critical properties of living systems. The conference will have broad interdisciplinary interest, because “living” processes are found virtually everywhere.”
Since I will be attending this conference please check back for more around the 19th of august!
