IEEE Computational Intelligence Society Awards

Deadline: April 30
 
Neural Networks Pioneer Award: Recognizes significant contributions to early concepts and sustained developments in the field of neural networks. This award recognizes two types of pioneering contributions: (1) fundamental understanding and (2) engineering application. This award is considered annually, and may be given to an individual or a group not exceeding three persons who contributed to the advancement of theory, technologies, and/or applications of neural networks by inventing new technologies, creating innovative technical developments, implementing new products, or managing innovative product design or production processes
• Significance of contribution made at least 15 years prior to award date.
 
Fuzzy Systems Pioneer Award: Recognizes significant contributions to early concepts and sustained developments in the field of fuzzy systems. This award recognizes two types of pioneering contributions: (1) fundamental understanding and (2) engineering application. This award is considered annually, and may be given to an individual or a group not exceeding three persons who contributed to the advancement of theory, technologies, and/or applications of fuzzy systems by inventing new technologies, creating innovative technical developments, implementing new products, or managing innovative product design or production processes. Up to three separate awards can be made in a single year
• Significance of contribution made at least 15 years prior to award date.
 
Evolutionary Computation Pioneer Award: Recognizes significant contributions to early concepts and sustained developments in the field of evolutionary computation.
