Call For Papers

CRoNe is a focused, multidisciplinary event organized by the Innovation and Robotics Students group at UTFSM, being a meeting point for people from engineering, human and biological sciences for developing and understanding complex intelligent systems.


During its 5th version, CRoNe is focused in discussions around learning and teaching, with analyses from neuroscientific views and presenting applications and advances on innovative methods based on artificial intelligence and applied robotics. In specific, the Congress will held discussions around: mechanisms for autonomous learning (human, non-human and machine), AI applications for enhancing learning (inside/ousite school environments), teaching methodologies (under neuroscientific analyses with insights from AI), among others coherent topics.

The works related to cognitive science, robotics and complex intelligent systems are welcome to participate.

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 colorful city, with an impressive historic downtown surrounded by various hills characterized by their adapted urban fabric. It 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, like the Atacama Desert, the Easter Island, or the millennial glaciers and waterfalls from Torres del Paine are at one local flight away.

All questions about the Congress, including submission, registration or any other event information, should be emailed to
