The idea of evolving machines, whose origins can be traced to the cybernetics movement of the 1940s and the 1950s, has recently resurged in the form of the nascent field of bio-inspired systems and evolvable hardware. The inaugural workshop, Towards Evolvable Hardware, took place in Lausanne in October 1995, and was followed by the First International Conference on Evolvable Systems: From Biology to Hardware (ICES96), which was held in Japan in October 1996. Subsequent conferences were held in Lausanne (1998), Edinburgh (2000), Tokyo (2001), Trondheim (2003), Barcelona (2005) and Wuhan (2007). This has become the leading conference in the field of evolvable systems.
The ICES 2008 conference will build on the success of its predecessors by bringing together researchers who combine biologically inspired concepts with hardware and presenting the latest developments in the field.
