About The Event

The European COST Action Chemobrionics aims to link research groups to stimulate new, innovative and high-impact interdisciplinary scientific research on chemobrionics. It focuses on self-organizing precipitation processes, such as chemical gardens forming biomimetic micro- and nano-tubular forms. The main theme of the proposed workshop “Chemobrionics” at the virtual conference on artificial life ALIFE 2021 will be to explore, quantify and understand non-equilibrium chemical systems, namely in the context of origin of life and artificial life.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in chemobrionics and wet artificial life, namely chemists, physicists, biologists, engineers. Further, it is expected that computer scientists performing mathematical simulations of life-like phenomena in chemical systems and experts from robotic field that build the platforms for laboratory experiments automatization will participate as well.
