CogSys 2010   -   Call for Contributions


4th International Conference on Cognitive Systems


January 27 & 28, 2010, ETH Zurich, Switzerland


Pre-registration of Poster Contributions:  December 15, 2009


---  http://www.CogSys2010.ethz.ch/ ---




-- Objective: 

The goal of the CogSys Conference is to bring together researchers in cognitive systems and robotics from academia, government and industry. The conference intends to present the state-of-the-art in cognitive systems and robotics in Europe and beyond. It  aims to spotlight European research activities in the field and generate a lively discussion and interaction across disciplinary and institutional borders.


-- Symposium Format: 

The conference will be held as a two-day single track conference with invited talks from selected EU projects in the field and four keynote talks from outstanding individuals. It will be enhanced by an open poster session presenting the very rich and diverse activities in European's research in cognitive systems and robotics. The posters will be published on the conference webpage and be freely available to the community and the public.


-- Venue: 

The conference will be held at ETH Zurich downtown campus in the heart of Europe. ETH's campus is easy to reach by direct trains and trams from Zurich Airport and by fast train from various major cities in Europe. The oral and poster presentation as well as the banquet on January 27 will be in ETH's historic main building overlooking Zurich.  


-- Poster Submissions: 

Poster submission is open to all individuals or groups active in the field of Cognitive Systems and Robotics. Submissions from EU funded projects are particularly encouraged. Submitted posters are expected to focus on innovative research and scientific/technological advances. Simple project overviews not enhancing scientific results and innovations will not be accepted as posters. The posters have to be submitted in A4 format for our on-line database and have to presented with A0 printout at the conference. It is therefore highly important that they are arranged so that they are readable in both formats. Please avoid putting too much and too lengthy text. A simple review process will enforce that all posters comply with this concept. 


-- Submission Procedure: 

Poster submissions have to be pre-registered (announced) through the CogSys 2010 webpage by December 15, 2009. Late pre-registration will be accepted only if space availability permits it. The final poster has to be uploaded by January 10, 2010. 


-- Related Events: 

The EUCogII Members' Conference 2010 will be held in conjunction with CogSys 2010 on January 29 at the same location.
