CIS is a vibrant community of researchers, students and industry professionals focusing on the development and application of intelligent computational solutions to problems across a wide range of disciplines, such as learning techniques and big-data analytical methods, to problems across a wide range of disciplines. CIS members are the leaders in their fields of endeavor. As a CIS member, you have greater opportunities to discuss and collaborate with these professionals.
Particularly, as a professional or graduate student member of CIS, the following benefits will be offered to you:
1: You will receive online IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine, our quarterly publication introducing the recent technique development of Computational Intelligence.
2: You will receive our monthly CIS E-Newsletter, with the most up-to-date information about the CIS field, events and opportunities.
3: You will have free access to the online electronic versions of our major journals, IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems, IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems, IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation and IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computational Intelligence, through IEEE Xplore.
4: Members of the Society can subscribe to additional publications at discounted prices. These include IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems, IEEE Transactions on Cognitive and Developmental Systems, IEEE Transactions on Games, IEEE Transactions on Computational Social Systems, IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing, IEEE Transactions on Big Data, IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics, IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security, IEEE Transactions on NanoBioscience and IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid.
5: You can organize, chair or join a CIS chapter at your region. The CIS chapter can invite DLP speakers, CIS providing the airfare, to give a talk. The CIS chapter can request to receive funds from the Society to organize a Summer School. The Chapter can apply for funding for chapter membership development. The chapter can also apply for the Best Chapter Award.
7: Within CIS there are several Technical Committees (TC), including Neural Networks TC, Fuzzy Systems TC, Evolutionary Computation TC, Intelligent Systems Applications TC, Data Mining and Big Data Analytics TC, Smart World TC, and etc. Within the TC, there are also task forces engaging on planning of new focuses/directions. As a CIS member, you are eligible to be considered for membership on our TC, and task forces and eligible to be considered to serve as the committee chair or task force chair.
8: The Editor in Chief of CIS major journals are appointed by CIS President and approved by CIS ADCOM. You are eligible to be considered to serve as an EIC in CIS related journals. You can also participate with CIS elections, and run for CIS ADCOM be considered for other officers positions.
9: In addition to TC, there are also subcommittees promoting education, members activities, and CIS conferences. As a CIS member, you are eligible to be considered to serve as a subcommittee chair.
10: You can join our receptions at CIS conferences to strengthen your network.
1: You have the opportunity of submitting a request to receive a travel grant to attend a CIS sponsored conference.
2: You have the opportunity of finding a mentor.
3: You can initialize or join a CIS Student Chapter at your university, and organize competitions as well as workshops and events with great speakers from our Distinguished Lecturer Program.
4: You will be able to connect with other members through the social networks and get informed on job positions, connect with local industries and recent graduates, discuss CI research, get tips on publishing at CIS journals and participate in CIS webinars.
5: You are eligible to be considered to serve in subcommittee and task forces.
