Many artificial life researchers stress the interdisciplinary character of the field. Against such a backdrop, this report reviews and discusses artificial life, as it is depicted in, and as it interfaces with, adjacent disciplines (in particular, philosophy, biology, and linguistics), and in the light of a specific historical example of interdisciplinary research (namely cybernetics) with which artificial life shares many features. This report grew out of a workshop held at the Sixth European Conference on Artificial Life in Prague and features individual contributions from the workshop¿s eight speakers, plus a section designed to reflect the debates that took place during the workshop¿s discussion sessions. The major theme that emerged during these sessions was the identity and status of artificial life as a scientific endeavor.
