Call for Contributions

Self-Assembling and Reconfigurable Systems Workshop Call for Contributions

The organisers of the workshop invite submissions of papers in the form of extended abstracts. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present a poster at the workshop. There will be two poster sessions in the workshop. The authors of the best poster will receive a poster award to the value of €300 and an award certificate. The poster awards and certificates are sponsored by Wiley and Advanced Intelligent Systems. Authors of accepted papers in the workshop will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue in Advanced Intelligent Systems based on the workshop topic. All submissions will undergo review by the organisers, and the authors will be notified of the decision shortly after. Submissions will be judged on relevance to the workshop content and their technical quality.

Please submit a 1-2 page extended abstract paper as a PDF file in the IEEE ICRA 2020 template format by email to Mohammed El-Sayed ( or Jamie Roberts ( with the subject Self-Assembling Systems Workshop Submission.

Please note that the paper submission to the workshop is different from a regular peer-reviewed paper. All submitted content will be posted on the workshop’s website, but will not be featured in the proceedings of the ICRA conference.

The workshop also invites submissions of videos and/or live demonstrations. Demonstrations will be encouraged to include physical prototypes of robotic systems that the demonstrator has been using in their relevant work. In the absence of physical prototypes, videos of the demonstrations can be submitted. The workshop includes a special session for the submitted videos and demonstrations.
