News & Announcements

Prof. RONALD R. YAGER wins the 2016 IEEE Frank Rosenblatt Award

Warmest congratulations to Prof. RONALD R. YAGER (LFIEE), Professor, Iona College, New York, New York, USA, for winning the 2016 IEEE Frank Rosenblatt Award "For contributions to the theory of fuzzy sets and systems." Prof. Yager is a CIS member and currently also a member of the CIS Administrative Committee.

Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Fuzzy Set Theory, free participation, August 3-4, 2015, Istanbul

The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the pioneering work of Lotfi Zadeh introducing the concept of fuzzy sets. This celebration will take place in Kadir Has University, Istanbul, Turkey, during August 3-4, 2015.

This event—including plenary lectures, an exhibition on the history of fuzzy logic, and a panel on its future—is collocated with FUZZ-IEEE 2015. Participation in this celebration is free. Capacity is limited and requests for attendance will be considered on a first-come-first served basis. Please register at http://doodle.com/6p483ymbsw8972t7.

The program is given at http://fuzzieee2015.org/the-fiftieth-anniversary-events/.

Please participate in this exceptional event!

Call for proposals on Membership Promotion Activities from Chapters

The IEEE CIS solicits proposals of Chapter initiatives for promoting IEEE CIS membership. Chapter chairs or officers are encouraged to submit a proposal from July 2015 to October 2015.

For details please refer to the CFP-chapters.

IEEE CIS: A vibrant rising society!

According to the April 2015 IEEE Membership Development Report, CIS has grown 16.9% with respect to April 2014. To learn the benefits of being a member of CIS, please visit http://cis.ieee.org/membership.html.

Call for Nominations for IEEE CIS AdCom Elections - Term 2016-2018

Each year, five members of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society are elected by the voting members of the Society to serve on the AdCom for a 3-year term. The AdCom represents the members of the Society, defines the strategic goals of the Society, approves the plans for the Society's activities, approves the Society's budget, amendments to the Constitution and Bylaws, appoints Society officers, and authorizes the expenditure of Society funds. Members of the AdCom are expected to attend annual meetings and be involved in Society activities.

Eligibility: All members of the Society of grade higher than Student member and in good standing at the time of the election are eligible to be nominated to the AdCom. Each nominee should be consulted prior to the nomination to make sure that he/she is willing to serve. Self-nominations are acceptable.

There are two ways to nominate a candidate:

1) Via nomination through the IEEE CIS Nominations Committee. Please email the following: (i) the name and full contact information of the nominee and (ii) a 250-word vita of the nominee, to the IEEE CIS Nominations Committee Chair, Marios M. Polycarpou (mpolycar@ucy.ac.cy), with cc to the IEEE CIS Executive Administrator Jo-Ellen B. Snyder (j.e.snyder@ieee.org). The deadline for submitting nominations to the above email addresses is June 26, 2014. The IEEE CIS Nominations Committee will select the members to be put on the ballot.

2) Via petition. A valid nomination by petition from the Society's members is guaranteed to put a candidate on the ADCOM electoral ballot. Nominations by petition in 2015 must include at least 134 valid signatures of Society members and need to be submitted in writing (no fax/emails acceptable) to: IEEE CIS President, Xin Yao, c/o Jo-Ellen B. Snyder, CIS Executive Administrator; IEEE Computational Intelligence Society; 445 Hoes Lane; P.O. Box 1331, Piscataway, NJ 08855, USA. Alternatively, petitions and signatures can be also submitted electronically through a petition web site established and managed by the IEEE. If you are interested in opening a petition web site, please contact Jo-Ellen B. Snyder, IEEE CIS Executive Administrator (j.e.snyder@ieee.org).

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.

Nikhil R. Pal
On behalf of the Search Committee

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.
