    Subject: CAMREC: CFP: Special Issue of JoM-EMIT on "Computational Memetics"

                            Computational Memetics

                             A special issue of the
     Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission

    Papers are solicited for a special issue of the online Journal of
    Memetics. The special issue will focus on computational models of
    memetics, broadly conceived. Example topics include:

    o simulation models of information evolution and transmission
    o computational culture
    o computational anthropology
    o formal models of memetics
    o computational social learning theory
    o computational approaches to the evolution of language
    o gene/culture co-evolution simulation
    o computer models of cognitive ecology
    o models of memetic activity on the internet

    Although all papers on the above topics will be considered, particular
    attention will be paid to submissions which:
    (1) lay out a formal model of the phenomena in question, and
    (2) support the model with computer-based simulation or other
            computational methods.

    Submissions are due by 15 September 2000. It is anticipated that the
    special issue will be released before the end of the year. All
    submissions should comport to the format and style requirements
    outlined at

    Submissions, and queries, are to be directed to the special issue
