This paper deals with the problem of guaranteed cost control for uncertain neutral stochastic systems. The parameter uncertainties are assumed to be time-varying but norm-bounded. Dynamic output feedback controllers are designed such that, for all admissible uncertainties, the resulting closed-loop system is mean-square asymptotically stable and an upper bound on the closed-loop value of the cost function is guaranteed. By employing a linear matrix inequality (LMI) approach, a sufficient condition for the solvability of the underlying problem is obtained. A numerical example is provided to demonstrate the potential of the proposed techniques.
