Call for Nominations / Applications for the position of the next Editor-in-Chief of IEEE TNNLS

IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems (TNNLS) is a flagship publication of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS), which enjoys a privileged position among the researchers in Neural Networks, Learning Systems, and related areas. The details about the transactions can be found at: http://cis.ieee.org/ieee-transactions-on-neural-networks-and-learning-systems.html.

The tenure of the present Editor will be over on December 31, 2015. IEEE CIS Executive Committee has formed an Adhoc Search Committee for recommending to CIS Administrative Committee a suitable candidate to serve as the next EIC of TNNLS. The Search Committee is seeking nominations /applications for this. The nominees/applicants should be dedicated volunteers with outstanding research profiles and extensive editorial experience. The nomination/application package should include complete CV along with separate description on each of the following items: Vision Statement; Editorial Experience; IEEE-CIS Publication Experience; IEEE CIS Volunteer Experience; Leadership Skills; Institutional Support; Networking with Community; Challenges ahead with the publication, if any, and how to deal with them; Why do the candidate considers himself/herself fit for this position?

The nomination/application package should be emailed as a single PDF at nrpal59@gmail.com by June 20, 2015.

URI hosts computational experts for free seminar

SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. – The University of Rhode Island’s College of Engineering will host a free seminar on computational intelligence on Oct. 3. Seven internationally recognized experts in the field of computational intelligence will speak from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Memorial Union Ballroom, 50 Lower College Rd., on the URI Kingston campus. Attendees must register by Sept. 29.

Among their presentation topics will be fuzzy data mining, learning in non-stationary environments, self-organization of swarm robots, big data, cognitive fault diagnosis, and astronomical time-series databases. The event’s organizers say it will have particular relevance to those with an interest in engineering, neuroscience, computer science and psychology.

For more information about the seminar and how to register http://egr.uri.edu/cisworkshop/ or contact Haibo He at he@ele.uri.edu.

UPDATE

As a technology-driven society, CIS leads and promotes the use of the technologies. From 1 January 2015, all complimentary copies of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine (CIM) to our members will be delivered electronically only. However, paper copies are still available, for a small fee ($15.00), to those who need them. As a society, we are making our small contributions to the environment by cutting the use of paper.
