Detailed information concerning the formatting guidelines, templates,  
online submission process, and proceedings can be found
at http://www.dmi.unict.it/ecal2013/callpapers.php

There are two options for submission: either *full paper* or  
*abstract*. Note that the format is exactly the same for both options.  
The only difference resides in the number of pages and type of contents:

1. Full papers have an *8-page* maximum length and should report on  
new, unpublished work

2. Abstracts are limited to a *2-page* length and should discuss work  
previously published in a journal. It is therefore essential that a  
reference to the previous article is clearly cited in the abstract.

All submissions will be subject to peer review, and all accepted  
submissions will be allocated either an oral presentation slot or a  
poster slot with no distinction being made between the two submission  
options (full paper or abstract).

Every accepted full-paper and abstract, which was submitted to the  
main conference (not the satellite workshops), will be published by  
MIT Press in a single online open-access proceedings volume.

The top 10 accepted publications will have the opportunity to publish  
a revised and expanded version of their conference paper in the  
Artificial Life journal (TBC).

The conference will be held at the Taormina  

We look forward to seeing you in Taormina!

Best wishes,
