Distinguished Lecturers Programs

The CIS Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) aims at serving communities interested in computational intelligence and, specifically, supporting local CIS Chapters and CIS members who like to stay up-to-date on the latest research and practical applications by organizing lectures given by distinguished experts. Particular attention is given to the specific needs of academia, and professionals in industry and government. Lecturers will tailor their presentations to the envisioned audience. The program supports local CIS Chapters by helping them to invite leading researchers in their respective fields. The DLP talk is a major event in the life of the inviting Chapter. The visibility of the inviting Chapter is expected to increase significantly as a result of the DLP talk. The visit should be actively pursued as an opportunity for membership recruitment. This program is not intended to provide speakers for conferences, workshops or symposia.

Requests for lectures given by one of the CIS Distinguished Lecturers must be submitted by CIS Chapter Chairs to the Chair of the Distinguished Lecturer Program Sub-Committee, according to the procedure described below. Lecturers will tailor their presentations to the specific envisioned audience. This program is not intended to provide speakers for conferences, workshops or symposia.
