SAB2010 - Simulation of Adaptive Behavior: From Animals to Animats 11, 24 - 28.08.2010

SAB2010 - the eleventh SAB conference - will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the founding one that has been held in Paris in 1990. SAB conferences afford a new approach to cognitive science, complementary to traditional AI - the "animat approach". They are held every two years in Europe, USA and Japan.

Event dates: 24th -- 28th August 2010

Stressing the necessity of integrating both the body and the control in the quest for understanding intelligence in natural or artificial systems, they are interested explicitly in the interactions between an animat - be it a simulated animal or a real robot - and its environment, and they particularly focus on the animat's aptitude to survive in unexpected environmental circumstances.

Centered around the study of behavior rooted in the real and the robust, SAB research aims at avoiding the pitfalls of standard AI approaches and at improving our knowledge in those domains where this latter has failed notoriously, notably while addressing problems of perception, of categorization, and of sensorymotor control.
