  abstract =     "Motivated by the natural phenomenon of living cells
                 self-organizing into specific shapes and structures, we
                 present an emergent system that uses evolutionary
                 computing methods for designing and simulating
                 self-aligning and self-organizing shape
                 primitives.Given the complexity of the emergent
                 behavior, genetic programming is employed to control
                 the evolution of our emergent system. The system has
                 two levels of description. At the macroscopic level, a
                 user-specified, pre-defined shape is given as input to
                 the system. The system outputs local interaction rules
                 that direct morphogenetic primitives (MP) to aggregate
                 into the shape. At the microscopic level, MPs follow
                 interaction rules based only on local interactions. All
                 MPs are identical and do not know the final shape to be
                 formed. The aggregate is then evaluated at the
                 macroscopic level for its similarity to the
                 user-defined shape. In this paper, we present (1) an
                 emergent system that discovers local interaction rules
                 that direct MPs to form user-defined shapes, (2) the
                 simulation system that implements these rules and
                 causes MPs to self-align and self-organize into a
                 user-defined shape, and (3) the robustness and
                 scalability qualities of the overall approach.",
