Distinguished Lecturers Programs
The IEEE CIS Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) aims at serving the Computational Intelligence community by providing stimulating lectures given by distinguished IEEE CIS professionals and scholars. It also aims at helping young researchers (masters and doctoral students) providing suggestions/guidance on their research problems as well as promoting computational intelligence tools and techniques among undergraduate students to make them interested in CIS fields of interest. Distinguished Lecturers present novel basic and/or applied research results in their CIS sub-field. Their lectures offer insights into the trends and challenges of their CIS sub-field and their vision for the given sub-field. In any given year, selected IEEE CIS Distinguished Lecturers (DLs) have a balanced representation of CIS sub-fields and include representatives from academia, industry and government while spanning different IEEE regions.The program supports local CIS Chapters by enabling a major chapter event which can considerably improve a chapter’s visibility to their existing IEEE CIS members, other IEEE society members and the wider CIS community in their area. It is expected that DLP events actively seek to recruit new CIS professionals to both the CIS field and to IEEE CIS.
It should be noted that this program is NOT intended as a means to finance speakers for conferences/workshops or symposia.
