Since I will be on the program committee for ECAL (European Conference for Artificial Life) 2015, I have been asked to publicize the call for papers, abstracts, and workshops. Here it is below — if interested, please consider submitting and attending:
* CALL FOR PAPERS *
ECAL 2015 - 13th EUROPEAN CONFERENCE ON ARTIFICIAL LIFE
“Embodiment, Interaction, Conservation”
The 13th European Conference on Artificial Life (ECAL 2015) will be held in York, United Kingdom, 20-24 July 2015, hosted by the York Centre for Complex Systems Analysis at the The University of York.
ECAL2015 will showcase a wide range of topics in Artificial Life, bringing together world-leading researchers to discuss the latest advances in Artificial Life. Artificial Life is an interdisciplinary field, and as such welcomes submissions from across the spectrum of scientific and humanities disciplines, that consider the main conference themes of “Embodiment, Interaction, Conservation”.
THE ECAL programme committee invite you to submit full papers (8 pages) or abstracts (1 page) in the area of Artificial Life. All submissions will undergo a detailed peer review process. Full papers will be reviewed for relevance, scientific and/or engineering quality, sound methodology and use of appropriate analysis techniques. Abstracts will be reviewed for relevance and quality.

There are two options for submission: either full paper or abstract. Note that the format is exactly the same for both options. The only difference resides in the number of pages and type of contents:
* Full papers have an 8-page maximum length and should report on new, unpublished work
* Abstracts are limited to a 1-page length and can report on previously published work, but offer a new perspective on that work. We encourage the use of LaTeX for the production of papers.
Submission will be via the Easy Chair system.
Papers and abstracts will be selected for oral or poster presentation, with no distinction being made between full papers and abstracts.
