Natural Computing (Springer)

Special Issue: "Artificial Life and Evolutionary Computation"


The goal of this Special Issue is to select and present high-quality articles in the area of Artificial Life and Evolutionary Computation related to the major interests and achievements of the Italian community, which has its operational basis at the Wivace workshop series.  

The topics that will be addressed are important for the current research in the area and for establishing connections between the topics. This will provide a vivid image of the Italian research activity in the field.  

The submissions of novel research papers from former or current authors of any Wivace contribution, from Wivace invited speakers and from researchers in strong contact with the community are highly encouraged.  
Extended and revised versions of the articles and abstracts accepted for the presentation at Wivace 2013 are especially solicited. 

Contributions to all the areas of Artificial Life and Evolutionary Computation are welcome: these include (but are not limited to): Bioinspired Algorithms, Bioinspired Robotics, Complex Systems, Evolutionary Computation, Genetic Algorithms, Modeling and Simulation of Artificial and Biological Systems, Modeling and Simulation of Social and Economical Systems, Synthetic and Systems Biology, Systems Chemistry, Theories and Applications of Artificial Life.  

All papers will follow a standard peer-review process. 


Manuscripts must be prepared in plain Latex format by following the Instructions for Authors at this link: 

Contributions should not exceed 15 pages and must be submitted at this page:, by logging in as author and selecting the "SI: Artificial Life and Evolutionary Computation" in the Article Type menu.
