  • Proposal Deadlines for IEEE SSCI 2024 and IEEE CAI 2024

    The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society sponsors many conferences each year with varying levels of financial sponsorship. We are currently looking for proposals for both the 2024 IEEE Symposium Series in Computational Intelligence (IEEE SSCI 2024) as well as the 2024 IEEE Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IEEE CAI 2024). The former is a collection of smaller symposia all collocated under one roof. Given SSCI’s in 2021 through 2023 will be held in North America or Asia, we are hopeful that a proposal for IEEE SSCI 2024 could come from another region. IEEE CAI is a new conference series being arranged with the cooperation of four IEEE societies including IEEE CIS. The intent of this series is an industry-focused event to highlight broad applications of AI. The first IEEE CAI will be held in June 2023 in Santa Clara, California and we are looking for two IEEE CIS members who would like to run this in 2024.   Proposals for these two conferences should be submitted by May 15, 2022 (hard...

  • Welcome from the Vice President for Industrial and Governmental Activities

    It is an honor and a privilege to serve as the first Vice President for Industrial and Governmental Activities (I&GA) of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS). Below, I will explain the motivation and origins of this new organization However, let me first describe my background and experience to explain how we arrived at the formation of I&GA and its mission. I began as a volunteer when our society was still a Council ( Neural Network Council). I spent almost three decades of my professional life as a member of its ExCom and AdCom, helping to nurture its growth into a Society (Neural Networks Society followed by Computational Intelligent Society). As a CIS member with a strong background in industrial applied research, I spent much of my time analyzing the academic research presented in our conferences and publications. My objective was to find the relevant "nuggets" that I could refine and apply to the industrial challenges in my work. A recent survey with CIS members...

  • Welcome from the President

      President’s Message: Ghostbusters and CIS Hey all, Well, it looks like I’m the President of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society for 2022-2023. Talk about your “hard act to follow!” I have great admiration and affection for Bernadette Bouchon-Meunier who led us through the unprecedented time of the COVID-19 pandemic with such grace and acumen. I have been fortunate to have worked with her over the years in several capacities, have had an inside view of CIS as her President-elect in 2021, but most of all to be able to call her “mon amie”. She’ll continue to provide leadership as past president in 2022 to my great relief. Bernadette followed a long line of dedicated and innovative Presidents; CIS has been fortunate for their leadership. Now it’s my turn “in the barrel”. The good news for me (and for you!) is that we have a large cast of extremely talented folks who carry the brunt of the organizational load. The Vice Presidents are energic and committed. Besides Finance,...
