to research into artificial life. They may be projects based on systems that emulate, imitate

boundaries between the living and the non-living, between synthetic and organic life.
In previous editions, the awards have gone to projects associated with robotic entities,
electronic avatars, chaotic algorithms, knowbots, cellular automata, neural networks,
computer viruses, virtual ecosystems, interactive systems, reactive architecture, immersive
