Call for abstracts

Dear colleagues, this is an announcement and Call for Abstracts for the

10th International Conference on Guided Self-Organisation (GSO-2020)
— Challenges in Theory and Opportunities in Robotics —

which is to be held at University of Edinburgh, UK, June 8-10, 2020.

The workshop is the 10th in a series that bring together researchers from diverse backgrounds who share an interest in understanding, designing and applying self-organising systems.

Of particular interest are well-founded and general methods for characterising and creating systems that can be guided towards pre-specified goals by exploiting their intrinsic dynamics through gentle control actions. Likewise of interest are applications of the power of self-organisation in robotics, machine learning, biological modelling and related areas.

Submissions to the workshop are extended abstracts (1 – 2 pages). If you are interested in participating, please submit an extended abstract

by 22 February 2020


The notifications about acceptance will be send out by 20th of March 2020.

Authors of accepted submissions will present their contributions at the workshop.

Full papers of selected contributions will be published in a special journal issue in Complex Systems and/or Frontiers in Neurorobotics.

Best wishes,
