From Animals to Animats 6

Proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Simulation of Adaptive Behavior

Edited by Jean-Arcady Meyer, Alain Berthoz, Dario Floreano, Herbert L. Roitblat and Stewart W. Wilson

A Bradford Book




The Animals to Animats Conference brings together researchers from ethology, psychology, ecology, artificial intelligence, artificial life, robotics, engineering, and related fields to further understanding of the behaviors and underlying mechanisms that allow natural and synthetic agents (animats) to adapt and survive in uncertain environments. The work presented focuses on well-defined models—robotic, computer-simulation, and mathematical—that help to characterize and compare various organizational principles or architectures underlying adaptive behavior in both natural animals and animats.
