Dear all,

The program of ECAL2007, 9th European Conference on Artificial Life, is now 
online in www.ecal2007.org.
We invite you to have a look to the titles and authors of the 120 papers 
(talks and posters) to be presented to the main conference, plus twelve 
workshops and tutorials, and several associated events which include an 
Alife music concert.

Each day will highlight a particular theme and will end with a panel 
discussion focusing on a particular controversial issue. Please visit the 
website for details.

Every morning and afternoon will start with a keynote lecture.  Keynote 
speakers include Dario Floreano, Rudolf Bannasch, Randall Beer, Antonio 
Coutinho, Janet Wiles, Peter Todd, Ezequiel Di Paolo, Ricard Sole and Brian 

The conference will close with a special session on the relation between 
Artificial Life and Biology. That session starts with a talk by Brian 
Goodwin and is followed by a panel discussion of similar format of the 
previous days.

The conference will be held in the CCB - Centro Cultural de Belem (Belem 
Cultural Center, www.ccb.pt ) - a venue located on the Tagus riverside not 
far from its mouth, in a historic quarter of Lisbon. Its pleasant gardens 
and terraces, and the riverside prom, present opportunities for relaxation 
and chatting, and create the right atmosphere for a pleasant and hopefully 
fruitful academic meeting. Last but not least, Lisbon in September will 
certainly offer us the usual warm temperature and bright skies.

Standard registrations will be open until the 31 of August.

All welcome!

On behalf of the organizing committee,
Fernando Almeida e Costa
