How CIS Works

The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) is established and organized within the IEEE. The IEEE CIS governance documents are its Constitution, Bylaws and Operations Manual.

The Administrative Committee (ADCOM) governs and administers the Society. The Executive Committee (EXCOM) is a standing committee of ADCOM, and it coordinates the Society operations.

The EXCOM is composed of the Society officers: President, the Immediate Past President or the President-elect, and 6 Vice-presidents: VP Conferences, VP Education, VP Finances, VP Members Activities, VP Publications and VP Technical Activities. The ADCOM is composed of 15 members-at-large, who are elected by CIS members, and 8 Society officers, who are elected by ADCOM.  See Fig. 1.

The IEEE CIS is organized in 13 standing committees and 12 technical committees. See Fig. 2. Each technical committee usually has one or more task forces. Standing and technical committees may have one or more subcommittees. The reader will find more details about subcommittees and task forces under the webpages of the respective committees.

The IEEE CIS has about 7,000 members from all over the world. As a member you may by interested in the Member Benefits and How to Get Involved webpages. Volunteer Resources is a special section for our volunteers. The Society has a large video collection under IEEE.Tv, including the Oral History.

The list of IEEE CIS publications where the Society is the sole or the leading sponsor is given below. For other journal publications, where the Society is a sponsor but not the leading society or a technical co-sponsor please visit the Publications webpage. We also produce a monthly CIS Newsletter and publish the IEEE Press/Wiley book series on computational intelligence..
