CIS promotes student research through games competition, organizing research results (algorithms, codes, and manuals etc.) into a central repository under educational archive.

If you have any suggestion, feel you free to contact the Chair of the Student Games-Based Competitions Sub-Committee (contacts below).

Please stay tuned for news!

IEEE CIS sponsored conferences

Sole sponsored or co-sponsored conferences must imperatively be closed within 6 months after the end of the conference.

They cannot be formally closed until a number of financial statements, forms and other documentation are submitted to the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. All documents related to conference closeout are submitted directly to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The CIS does not require copies of these documents.

Conference closeout must be done promptly to prevent penalties. The CIS expects all required conference closeout documentation be submitted to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. not later than 90 days after the conference. The steps necessary to close out a conference are listed on the IEEE Post Conference Activities webpage.

The conference general chair should contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. directly for any questions relating to the conference closeout procedures.

The conference general chair shall provide the CIS Vice President for Conferences with the number of submissions and the acceptance rate of papers from the conference.

IEEE CIS technically co-sponsored conferences

There is no CIS involvement in closing a conference if technical co-sponsorship is the only level of participation.

The conference organizing committee will provide the following to the CIS VP for Conferences, within 30 days after the conference:

  • Number of papers submitted

  • Number of papers accepted

  • Number of oral and poster presentations

  • Number of attendees

  • List of keynote speakers: names, affiliations, country, and talk title (if any)

  • Use of CrossCheck for all conference papers submitted for review and to IEEE Xplore if the proceedings are to be published in IEEE Xplore

When a conference has been approved by IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, it is necessary to submit as soon as possible the material IEEE requires: IEEE Conference Application

A part of this process requires that a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is completed. This MOU form will be generated automatically as a part of your material on the URL above.

The approved budget needs to be registered with the IEEE. This can be accomplished here: IEEE Conference Financial Reporting

When the conference general chair has completed the budget submission and received confirmation, confirmation must be forwarded to the IEEE CIS VP Conferences for CIS records.

An intermediate budget must be provided to the IEEE CIS VP Conferences after the notification of paper acceptance is complete, by updating the expected number of participants.

The general chair shall not transmit the original budget or any revisions to that budget directly to the IEEE. ADCOM will review and approve any budget revisions having variations larger than 5% in any line.

The IEEE also provides an excellent checklist for conference organizers: How to organize an IEEE Conference: Checklist & Timeline

More detailed guidelines to organize a conference are provided by the IEEE VP Conferences after the conference is approved.
