    CRoNe is a multidisciplinary group of students at Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María whose main focus is to develop a worldwide-known Congress on Robotics and Neuroscience. CRoNe is part of the student initiative Innovación y Robótica Estudiantil, whose main objective consist in offering an instance and support for developing personal projects on robotics.

    What is Our Goal?

    Our main goal is to become a world-wide-known point of meeting for students, academics and professionals in the subjects of robotics and neuroscience, exhibiting the most exciting and innovative state of the arts in these areas. Our mission is to consolidate a non-profit event with the purpose of spreading the R&D on robotics and neuroscience, allowing national students to establish links and a early feedback in their works from world-known speakers.

    Means of transport

    Since the University is located by the main road (Av. España) that connects Valparaíso with Viña del Mar almost any means of transport might be useful. Of particular interest might be the bus number 604 in case you don't like stairs.

    If you go by metro, then you must get off at Barón station and walk about 100 meters towards Valparaíso.

    Inside the University

    Once inside, the congress will be held in a room named Auditorium at Building T.

    If you need help finding a place to stay send us an email and we will find the way to help you.

    Photos of Valparaíso & Chile


    The conference will be held at Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María, in Valparaíso, Chile. Immerse in a World Heritage Seaport City, this University has more than 85 years of activities in research and education.

    Valparaíso by itself is a colored city with a natural amphitheater-like setting with impressive open views, characterized by a vernacular urban fabric adapted to the hillsides; and, is a neighbor city of the tourist capital of Chile, Viña del Mar, which is located 5 minutes from the conference location.

    Other magnificent touristic destinations, as the Atacama Desert, the Easter Island, or the millennial glaciers and waterfalls from Torres del Paine are at one local flight away.
