Notification of Acceptance: February 1, 2012


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 Cognitive Systems and Robotics, 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 research in cognitive systems and robotics. The posters will be published on the conference webpage and will be freely available to the community and the public.


The conference will be held at TU Vienna which is located in the heart of Vienna. All sessions will be held in TUís main building (Karlsplatz 13, 1040 Vienna, Austria).

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 be presented with A0 (84,1x118,9cm) printout (Portrait format) at the conference. It is therefore highly important that they are arranged so that they are readable in both formats. 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 2012 Webpage by January 10, 2012. Late pre-registration can only be accepted if available space permits it. The final poster has to be submitted by February 12, 2012.
