Alife Mutants' Hackingsession on Systems and Organisms
06. - 13. march 2004
Bielefeld (Germany)

rule 110

1) annual meeting to discover the rules that govern life, the universe and everything by computer simulation.
2) cellular automaton (CA) that is able to perform universal computation.
the number 110 refers to the enumeration scheme introduced by Stephen Wolfram in 1986.

alife mutant manifesto

Let the clones tremble at a mutant {r}evolution. The mutants have nothing to lose but their brains. They have a world to win. Mutants of all species, recombine!

One week of exchanging ideas, doing Alife-related projects and having fun with students from all over the world.

selforganized:   for students - by students.

We call ourself Alife Mutants because it looks like we are the only students for miles around who want do to do cool stuff on topics like Alife, social systems simulation and swarm intelligence. But we are sure: there are others of our kind out there...

what's new?

  • application deadline extended until February 14th
  • mailing lists [rule110] and [AMHSO] in the { contact } section

the meaning of AMHSO

The everchanging title of the rule110 meetings is generated by a rule110 CA, which was initialized with the binary encoded string ALIFE. After one iteration it returned AMHSO as the acronym for the forthcoming winter workshop in 2004.

the deeper meaning of AMHSO

The inverse-acronym-automaton, which we fed with AHMSO a small grammar and a lot of funky words, returned several titles. Alife Mutants' Hackingsession on Systems and Organisms is definitley our favourite one.
