Missions:  The CIS Summer Schools are designed for senior undergraduate, and graduate students, post-docs, and young researchers who are willing to deepen their skills in computational intelligence and related areas. The objective is to stimulate them to be involved in rapidly evolving fields and to foster participation in the adventure of research.

Dates and Length: The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society Summer Schools are held not only in summer but all year around. The length of each summer school may vary.

Format: Summer Schools usually consist of lectures, seminars, discussions, and visits to local academic organizations or industries. Lectures will be given by international scholars working in computational intelligence and interdisciplinary areas from fundamental theory to applications.

Fundings: The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society will co-finance approved summer schools and the organizing institution will cover other expenses. The participants may need to partially contribute to the registration fee to compensate for the expenses of local living and inviting lectures. Further details on funding opportunities can be found in the next section.

Benefits of Participants: Summer Schools will provide accommodation and meals to registered participants. The participants will be given a chance to meet peer researchers, and international scholars (especially young scientists), discuss hot topics and ongoing research, and also experience local industry and culture.

The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) is pleased to offer funding to support the organization of summer schools in the field of computational intelligence. Funding is available to partially cover the costs of tuition, accommodation, and other expenses associated with running a summer school.

Eligibility

To be eligible for CIS summer school funding, organizers must:
  • Offer a summer school in the field of computational intelligence.
  • Have a strong track record in teaching and research associated with computational intelligence.
  • Plan to hold their summer school in the eligible period of 1 April to 31 December of the respective year.
  • The main organizer should be a member of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society.

Application Process

To apply for IEEE CIS summer school funding, interested organizers should submit a proposal to the IEEE CIS Summer School Sub-Committee by the deadline shown below. Late submissions may also be considered, but subject to the availability of the budget balance. In writing your proposal, please address the following aspects:
  • Aim and target.
  • Courses and lecturers.
  • Tentative program.
  • Local organizer(s).
  • Registration and accommodation.
  • School budget, financial sponsor(s), and requested co-finance from CIS.
A template with comments on the required details for the evaluation process can be downloaded here: Template

Deadlines

  • Deadline for submission of applications: April 30 
  • Award notifications will be sent out by May 15

Evaluation and Selection

Evaluation and selection will be based on the following criteria:
  • The quality of the proposed technical program and topic balance;
  • The geographical balance of the proposals;
  • The length of the school;
  • The reasonableness of the budget;
  • The organizer's experience in organizing summer schools.

Award Terms

CIS summer school funding awards will be typically $1,000 to $8,000. Funds must be used to cover the costs of tuition, accommodation, and other expenses associated with running a summer school.

Please note that the actual fund may be less than the amount that has been applied for. In any case, the fund will not be provided if the activity ends up being canceled, so please confirm if your summer school will be carried out in either a physical or virtual way.

Please also note that the use of money is clearly restricted, in particular funds should NOT be used to pay an honorarium to anyone (e.g., speakers) NOR IEEE membership dues.

Finally, we would like to note that the funds are usually paid once the summer school has finished. If you require payments in advance, please contact the chair of the summer school subcommittee to discuss.

Reporting Requirements

After running the summer school, all awardees will be required to submit a brief report to the CIS Summer School Funding Sub-Committee Chair describing the summer school and providing statistics on the number of students that participated in the event.

Final Remarks

Please note that these are just general guidelines. Specific requirements and deadlines may vary according to the call for summer school proposals.

The IEEE CIS Summer School Subcommittee, a subcommittee under the Education Committee of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, is responsible for operating issues such as evaluating proposals, coordinating local hosts, selecting participants, and determining the topic of each summer school.

In particular, but not limited to the following, the Summer Schools Subcommittee members help to:

  1. Advertise the summer school by distributing calls for summer school proposals to interested local hosts and call for participants to senior undergraduate, graduate students, post-doc, and young researchers.
  2. Solicit potential local host and financial support.
  3. Evaluate summer school proposals and coordinate with the local host to select a suitable topic, place, and date.
  4. Propose a lecturer for the summer school based on the topic or theme.
  5. Coordinate discussions and other activities during summer school.
