Major Award for the IEEE CIS UKRI Chapter

 

It has just been announced that the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society UKRI section chapter is this year's winner of the IEEE Region 8 Best chapter award.

 

Every year, IEEE Region 8 organizes the chapter of the year awards (Region 8 includes Europe, Middle East and Africa). There are two awards, one for the small chapters (<100 members) and the other for larger chapters. The IEEE CIS UKRI chapter has 297 members. The award is open to chapters in Region 8 across all IEEE society's and is for 2011 activities.

ACIB11, 1st Annual Conference on Integral Biomathics, Stirling University, Scotland, 29-31 August 2011.

The INBIOSA project brings together experts across many disciplines who believe that science requires a transformative step in order to address many of the vexing challenges in the world today. Many of these come from behavior in living systems and societies. The difference between living and non-living matter, understanding the human mind, understanding how living matter can be self-aware seems to be impossible within current scientific paradigms. We believe in an intellectual community that challenges the current orthodoxy in science. This is both healthy and necessary to this transformation. INBIOSA’s purpose is to enable and support such a community of original thinkers in their pursuit of the above goals.

What it means to be a young CI researcher in the 21st century

Congratulations to Stephen Matthews, our Student Rep and a PhD student from De Montfort University, who won the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society Essay Competition for GOLD members – What it means to be a young CI researcher in the 21st century.

 

The essay is to appear in the IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine. Stephen will receive a prize of US$500, an official society certificate, and also an invitation from the GOLD subcommittee chair of the Computational Intelligence Society to get involved in the subcommittee for 2011.

The IEEE CIS UKRI chapter would like to bring to your attention the Irish Signals and Systems Conference. The IEEE CIS UKRI chapter has technically co-sponsored this event for the past three years. The year theme is "Multidisciplinary Signal Processing" and covers a range of topics in which Computational Intelligence research can be applied. CI researchers are strongly encouraged to submit a paper.  ISSC2009

 

See our events page for other relevant local conferences/workshops  

 

We are planning to create another newsletter in an attempt to keep UKRI researchers abreast of some of the recent developments, successes and news from the CI community in the UKRI region. If you have any news which you think may be off interest to other CI researchers in the UKRI we are very keen to hear from you. Please contact us as soon as possible (d.coyle@ieee.org)
