This document is an overview of artificial life. Artificial life may be shortly described as the study of bioinspired computing models and of artificial lifeforms in such an environment. This is a technical document written as a source of information for newcomers into the field and designed to support a short (4 hour) course in these matters. It tries to cover artificial life in broadness rather than in depth. A comprehensive set of references and other pointers is presented to help the interested reader in finding support to further deepen knowledge in the presented topics. Although the document is introductory, some knowledge in mathematics and artificial intelligence in general will be useful to better grasp some sections.
