Call For Papers


ALEA 2015 is part of EPIA 2015, the main International Conference of Artificial Intelligence in Portugal, supported by Portuguese Artificial Intelligence Association (APPIA). The purpose of the conference is to promote research in AI and scientific exchange among AI researchers, practitioners, scientists, and engineers in related disciplines.
EPIA 2015, the Seventeenth Portuguese Conference on Artificial Intelligence, will be held in the campus of University of Coimbra, in Coimbra, Portugal (, 8-11, September, 2015.

ALEA thematic track will focus on scientific research and applications of Artificial Life (ALife) and Evolutionary Algorithms (EA).

The focus is on computational bio-inspired models for studying natural systems, as well as for solving engineering and social problems. We are targeting the ALife community, the EA community and, in addition, researchers and practitioners working in the overlap of these two areas, from computer science to physics, engineering, medicine, biology and economy.

Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. Papers should not exceed twelve (12) pages in length and must adhere to the formatting instructions of the conference. Each submission will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee. The reviewing process is double blind, so authors should remove names and affiliations from the submitted papers, and must take reasonable care to assure anonymity during the review process. References to own work may be included in the paper, as long as referred to in the third person. Acceptance will be based on the paper’s significance, technical quality, clarity, relevance and originality.

All accepted papers will be published by Springer in a volume of the LNAI-Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series (indexed by the Thomson ISI Web of Knowledge). The number of pages of the accepted contributions has the following limits:

Full Regular Papers: Contributions accepted as full papers should contain from 10 to 12 pages in its final version, according to the LNAI series formatting instructions. Extraordinarily, other two additional pages could be considered with a supplementary fee.

Short Papers: Contributions accepted as short papers should contain from 4 to 6 pages in its final version, according to the LNAI series formatting instructions.
All accepted papers must be presented orally the conference by one of the authors and at least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference.
