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.
