Patel and Uwe Schnepf; distributed adaptive control - a paradigm for designing autonomous agents, Rolf Pfeifer and Paul Verschure; taking eliminative materialism seriously - a methodology for autonomous systems research, Tim Smithers; an adaptable mobile robot, Leslie Pack Kaelbling; learning behaviour networks from experience, Pattie Maes; characterizing adaptation by constraint, Ian Horswill; on the self-organizing properties of topological maps, Didier Keymeulen and Jo Decuyper; massively parallel evolution of recurrent networks - an approach to temporal processing, Piet Spiessens and Jan Torreele; neural networks for visual tracking in an artificial fly, Dave Cliff; an approach to sensorimotor relevance, Eric Dedieu and Emmanuel Mazer; using motor actions for location recognition, Ulrich Nehmzow and Tim Smithers; the application of temporal difference learning to the neural control of quadruped locomotion, Martin Snaith and Owen Holland; evolution of subsumption using genetic programming, John R.
