IEEE Frank Rosenblatt Award Call for Nominations


The IEEE Frank Rosenblatt Award was established in 2004.

The award is named in honor of Frank Rosenblatt who is widely regarded as one of the founders of neural networks. Basing his research on the study of fly vision, he developed the single-layer input layer and an output layer of neural cells. Frequent presentation of a pattern or patterns resulted in changes in the input to output connections, facilitating future recognition of these patterns, or memory.  His work influenced and even anticipated many modern neural network approaches.

Recipient selection is administered through the Technical Field Awards Council of the IEEE Awards Board.

Presented to: An individual, multiple recipients, or a team of not more than three.

Scope: For outstanding contributions to biologically and linguistically motivated computational paradigms and systems.

Prize: The award consists of a bronze medal, certificate, and honorarium.

Basis for judging: In the evaluation process, the following criteria are considered: quality of the contribution; impact on the technical field and society as demonstrated by publications, patents, or other evidence; and the quality of the nomination.

Nomination deadline: endorsement letters are due 31 January annually.

Notification: Recipients are typically approved during the June IEEE Board of Directors meeting, usually held towards the end of the month. Recipients and their nominators will be notified following the meeting. Subsequently, the nominators of unsuccessful candidates will be notified of the status of their nomination.

Presentation: IEEE policy requires that its awards be presented at major IEEE events that are in keeping with the nature of the award and the cited achievement.

Sponsor: IEEE Computational Intelligence Society

Eligibility: Please be sure to review the eligibility requirements to understand if your candidate is eligible to be nominated.

Student and Early Career Researcher Mentoring Program @ WCCI2022

Following successful iterations of the IEEE CIS Student and Early Career Researcher Mentoring Program in previous years and over 100 alumni, in 2022, the program is back ‘bigger and better’ than ever, at WCCI 2022 in Padua, Italy.

We are hoping for an in-person mentoring program, matching student and early-career lead authors to experienced academics and leaders in the scientific community. Fostering interaction, and exchange of ideas, the program will encompass one-to-one feedback for participants across all three conferences.

Beyond the regular program, highlights for 2022 also include:

  • IEEE CIS Transaction Paper Development Workshops (PDWs), led by the IEEE CIS flagship journals in all three communities, IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation, IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems, and IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems.

  • Dedicated Networking Events, offering mentees the opportunity to engage with, and beyond their dedicated mentor, and build their network with other mentees.

Details will become available on the WCCI 2022 web page in early 2022. Looking forward to seeing you in Padua, Italy!

CIS Conferences
Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, dates and details of CIS sponsored conferences should be monitored closely.

The situation is changing very quickly. Please consult the conference web pages frequently to obtain the latest information.

You can find the most recent announcements and updates from all of our Society’s conferences and events at IEEE CIS COVID-19 Notice page as our organizers make decisions.


The 9th IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (IEEE DSAA’2022) features its strong interdisciplinary synergy between statistics (via ASA), computing and information/intelligence sciences (via IEEE and ACM), and cross-domain interactions between academia and business for data science and analytics. 

DSAA'2022 provides a premier forum that brings together researchers, industry and government practitioners, as well as developers and users of big data solutions for the exchange of the latest theoretical developments in Data Science and the best practice for a wide range of applications. DSAA'2022 invites submissions of papers describing innovative research on all aspects of data science and advanced analytics as well as application oriented papers that make significant, original, and reproducible contributions to improving the practice of data science and analytics in real-world scenarios. 

The submission deadline is 15 May 2022, and more details can be found on the IEEE DSAA'2022 website.
