The AL lab at the Department of Zoology at the Karl-Franzens-University Graz is an interdisciplinary workgroup, consisting of 10-15 scientists that investigate Artificial-Life topics from various perspectives and with a huge variety of tools and approaches. The studies performed in the group are:


  • Bio-inspired robotics
  • Swarm robotics
  • Modelling of swarm-intelligent systems
  • Complexity science
  • Studies of biological self-organization
  • Multi-agent simulations
  • Artificial ecologies
  • Artificial evolution
  • Artificial physiology


… and many other fields that deal with biology, mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering.
