The 13th (and final) full project meeting was held at the Bristol Robotics Laboratories on 9 - 10 February 2012.
The 12th full project meeting, Friday 21st October 2011, is very kindly hosted by the Electronics Dept of University of York.
Two papers were published at the European Conference on Artificial Life (ECAL 2011) in Paris last week:
Guest A, Sapeluk A, Winfield A and Bown J (2011). Promoting Meme Diversity and Transmission Fidelity in Artificial Proto-Cultures. In Proceedings of the Eleventh European Conference on the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems (ECAL 2011). T. Lenaerts, M. Giacobini, H. Bersini, P. Bourgine, M. Dorigo and R. Doursat, (eds.).

And a 3rd at the Complex Systems Simulation and Modelling workshop:

New paper: On embodied memetic evolution and the emergence of behavioural traditions in Robots, in Memetic Computing, published online 8 July 2011 here.
The 11th full project meeting takes place 16 + 17 June 2011, hosted by Robin Durie in the Politics Department of University of Exeter.
16 June 2011: The project team participated in a cross-disciplinary discussion at the Bridging the Gap workshop, University of Exeter: http://www.exeter.ac.uk/btg/
On Saturday 19th March we held a very well attended workshop on the project, at Leeds Met University, as part of the 2011 conference of the Northern Arts and Science Network: Dialogues. We had a small portable arena with 8 e-puck robots and, judging by the feedback, the session was very well received.
