This site was actively maintained from 1996-2006. However, by 2006 the CAS/AL/ABM/ACE literature was growing at a rapid rate, making it difficult to maintain this broad a coverage. Since 2006, attention has been more narrowly focused on CAS/AL/ABM/ACE-related materials of potential interest to ACE researchers. For such materials related to learning, adaptation, and social evolution, see ACE Research Area: Learning and the Embodied Mind.
