******************Call For Papers**************
Monte Verità, Switzerland, September 8-13, 2002
International workshop on:

"Self-Organisation and Evolution of Social Behaviour."

Organised by Charlotte K. Hemelrijk and Eric Bonabeau.

Scope and Aims
The different techniques covered by the term 'Artificial Life' can be used,
among other things, for improving our understanding to what extent observed
social behaviour may be due to self-organisation and what implications this
has for evolutionary theories. Although in this field major discoveries have
been made, the methods developed by Artificial Life have not been adopted
sufficiently in mainstream biology, anthropology and sociology.
One of the aims of the workshop is to promote such integration in the vast
area of the study of social behaviour.
Both modellers and empiricists are welcome to present their views at this
workshop (for more information see www.ifi.unizh.ch/events/monteverita2002).

Contributions are solicited from (but are not confined to) the following

· Collective decisions
· Dominance interactions
· Societies
· Task distribution
· Mate choice
· Communication
· Cultural Transmission
· Evolution of Social Systems
· Social and economic evolution

The workshop is limited to a maximum number of 60 participants, who will be
expected to attend the entire workshop. The scientific program will consist
of keynote lectures by approximately 15 invited speakers, contributed oral
and poster presentations and panel discussions, on any aspects of
Self-organisation and evolution of social behaviour (theoretic and
