In living systems, the Emotional appears to be related to numerous aspects of their ability to maintain control over essential/important facets of their relationship to their physical and social environments. Against the background of the intensifying dialogue between the sciences of the living and of the artifacts (engineering) this symposium is aimed at assessing the state of research relating the natural phenomenon of the Emotional to the world of the artificial for purposes of autonomy control.
By focussing on this issue, this symposium shall further the dialogue that was successfully established with a workshop on Grounding Emotions in Adaptive Systems at last year's International Conference of the Society for Adaptive Behaviour (SAB'98, Zurich, Switzerland), and continued at events including the AAAI 1998 Fall Symposium Emotional and Intelligent: The Tangled Knot of Cognition (Orlando, FL, USA) and the AA'99 Workshops on Autonomy Control Software and on Emotion-Based Agent Architectures (Seattle, WA, USA). In particular, the discussions around a position paper at the Autonomy Control Software workshop (presentation slides) gave directly rise to the idea of organising the present event.

For details on how to prepare the draft final paper, see the submission guidelines for the main EMCSR conference published on the EMCSR 2000 homepage (<URL:http://www.osgk.ac.at/emcsr/00/>). Draft Final Papers must not exceed 10 single-spaced A4 pages (maximum 43 lines, max. line length 160 mm, 12 point), in English. They have to contain the final text to be submitted, including graphs and pictures. However, these need not be of reproducible quality. They must carry the title, author(s) name(s), and affiliation (incl. e-mail address, if possible) in this order, and must include an abstract.
Please notice that for this particular symposium submission in electronic format as compressed e-mail attachment is strongly preferred; otherwise, send four hard copies of the draft final paper.
Authors of accepted papers will be notified by January 24, 2000; the list will also be published on the ACE 2000 web site. After the event, a second round of more extensive reviews is planned which is to lead to the publication of extended versions of selected contributions in an edited collection.
|Paper submission deadline:||November||15,||1999|
|Notifications of acceptance/rejection:||January||24,||2000|
|Camera-ready copies due:||February||11,||2000|
