About ALIFE 2021
Taking into consideration the continued erratic development of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying restrictions of worldwide travelling as well as the safety and health of the ALIFE community, the organizing committee decided to host ALIFE 2021 as a virtual conference in July 19-23, 2021. Unfortunately, the current situation does not allow a face-to-face conference in Prague, Czech Republic.
The organizing committee is working intensively to create a virtual conference that gives as much of a real conference atmosphere as possible.
The ALIFE conferences are the major meetings of the artificial life research community since 1987. These scientific gatherings are supported by the International Society for Artificial Life (ISAL).
The conference theme will be
Robots: The century past and the century ahead.
The world-wide used word "robot" comes from Czech. It was first used to depict a fictional humanoid in Czech writer Karel Čapek’s play R.U.R. Although the play is one hundred years old it opens many contemporary questions and many of them are related to artificial life research. It will be great to celebrate this centenary with artificial life community in the Czech Republic!
