The 2nd Congress on Robotics and Neuroscience is part of the South American Robotics Week, hosted by Innovacion y Robotica Estudiantil UTFSM, whose aim is to promote a scientific meeting in the areas ranging from Robotics and its application on Neuroscience to medical applications of computational intelligence techniques.

The event will be held through 1) technical lectures of world-recognized experts in the area and 2) oral posters presentations by majoring students. The student must be the corresponding author of the work and will have to present the poster at CRoNe 2016. Authors of accepted works should submit through EasyChair the final poster on or before October 9th in order to be printed by the organizing committee. The acceptance decision will be based on an extended abstract written in English of maximum 3 pages at double column including references (prefer Computer Modern Roman 12pt, default font family for LaTeX), submitted as PDF through EasyChair.

Important dates

October 27-29, 2016 -- Valparaiso, Chile

Extended abstract submission August 31 September 11
Author notification September 18
Poster submission October 09
Oral poster presentation October 28 October 27

Students presenting a poster will be granted with workshop registration and opening dinner at no cost.


Extended abstract must be written in English and must not exceed 3 pages in standard double column format including title, abstract, all tables, figures, and references. Presentations should include theoretical, empirical or applied research or development related to the topics of the congress. Document submission must be made by using EasyChair:

Authors may be invited to submit a full version of their work as original research to "frotiers in neurorobotics" ( ), an open access electronic journal. Indexed in: PubMed, PubMed Central, Scopus, Web of Science, Google Scholar, DOAJ, CrossRef, EMBASE, dblp. e-ISSN: 1662-5218. Short name: Front. Neurorobot.

A proceedings ebook with ISBN will be published with all accepted works.
