Society Spotlight

IEEE Computational
Intelligence Society
IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) is a
vibrant community of researchers, students, and
industry professionals engaged in the development
and applications of bio-inspired intelligent
computational paradigms. The three major pillars
of computational intelligence (CI) are neural
networks, evolutionary computation,and fuzzy
logic and systems. CIS is the home for advanced
machine learning techniques such as deep
learning, evolutionary games, and computing with
words. CIS publishes a number of highly reputed
journals covering different facets of Computational
Intelligence. The activities of the society evolve
depending on the demand of time. Recently, we
have started a new publication, titled Transactions
on Emerging Topics in Computational Intelligence, to
embrace and promote new topics in CI. The society
also organizes many premier conferences in the
area of computational intelligence. This year two of
our major events are: (i) IEEE World Congress on
Computational Intelligence (WCCI 2018), which will
be held during 8-13 July in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
and (ii) IEEE Symposium Series In Computational
Intelligence (SSCI 2018) , which will be held during
18-21 November in Bengaluru, India. WCCI consists
of three major conferences, IEEE International
Conference on Fuzzy Systems, IEEE Congress on
Evolutionary Computation, and International Joint
Conference on Neural Networks; while SSCI is a
unique event that co-locates about 30 symposia
each on a focused topic related to CI. Every year we
also organize several other conferences focusing on
the use of computational intelligence in areas like

THE BRIDGE

Smart World, Data science and Advanced Analytics,
Robotics, Bioinformatics and Computational Biology,
and Games.
In CIS we assign the highest importance to the
academic, scientific, and social needs not only of
CIS members but also of the humanity as a whole.
Keeping this in mind CIS organizes a wide spectrum
of programs such as distinguished lectures, webinars,
competitions (including games), summer schools,
summer research grants, students' travel grants to
attend our conferences, educational videos, and
many more. CIS recognizes that Young researchers
are the future leaders and makes concerted efforts
to promote participation of young researchers in
every sphere of its activities.
In order to have a better interaction between the
community interested in CI (not necessarily CIS
members) and the members of the CIS Executive
Committee (ExCom), we carefully choose the
locations for our ExCom meetings and usually
organize a one-day workshop on CI. Typically,
the workshop is jointly organized with a local
host, which could be the local CIS Chapter or a
university/engineering institute. Usually, all ExCom
members give a talk and sometimes one or two
local researchers also speak at the workshop. Such
workshops are free to anyone (CIS member or not),
who is interested in computational intelligence.
