Call for abstracts

Abstract submission deadline: June 29th

Notification of acceptance: July 11th

Camera-read version: August 11th

Workshop: September 14th

We invite submissions of 2-4 pages abstracts to our workshop on Modular and Swarm Systems - from Nature to Robotics. Successful abstract submissions will be presented in the form of a poster during the workshop. Abstracts submitted to this workshop will be selected based on their potential for stimulating scientific discussions among workshop participants. We welcome preliminary work of high potential. We especially encourage early-career researchers to send abstract contributions and to participate in the workshop. For the workshop we invited some of the leading experts in modular and swarm robotics as well in related fields from biology and chemistry. This workshop will be your chance to get into contact with these experts, to present your research ideas to them and to get valuable feedback. The abstracts will be published on our workshop website (if agreed by the authors).

Award: The best poster presentation will be awarded a cash prize (USD 500).

Please use the templates of the IEEE RAS Manuscript Preparation Guidelines. Abstracts should clearly state one or two research questions or challenges. For PhD students that could be the core questions that you want to tackle in your thesis.

Please send your abstracts (PDF only) or questions related to abstract preparation and submission directly to
