About this book

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 4th Australian Conference on Artificial Life, ACAL 2009, held in Melbourne, Australia, in December 2009.

The 27 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 60 submissions. Research in Alife covers the main areas of biological behaviour as a metaphor for computational models, computational models that reproduce/duplicate a biological behaviour, and computational models to solve biological problems. Thus, Alife features analyses and understanding of life and nature and helps modeling biological systems or solving biological problems. The papers are organized in topical sections on alife art, game theory, evolution, complex systems, biological systems, social modelling, swarm intelligence, and heuristics.
