IEEE Computational Intelligence Society

From Wikipedia

The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society is a professional society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) focussing on "the theory, design, application, and development of biologically and linguistically motivated computational paradigms emphasizing neural networks, connectionist systems, genetic algorithms, evolutionary programming, fuzzy systems, and hybrid intelligent systems in which these paradigms are contained". [1]


The society was formed as the IEEE Neural Networks Council on November 17, 1989 with representatives from 12 different IEEE societies. On November 21, 2001, the IEEE Neural Networks Council became the IEEE Neural Networks Society. In November 2003, it changed its name to the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society. [2]


The IEEE CIS publishes three peer-reviewed scientific journals: [3]

The society also co-sponsors the following publications: [3]

Through Councils the society also support the following transactions:

The society also publishes a magazine, Computational Intelligence Magazine, and sponsors a book series on computational intelligence. [4]


To promote knowledge dissemination in computational intelligence, multimedia tutorials are being developed and provided, as well as courses and summer schools are being supported. To help graduate student research and exchange especially at the international level summer research grants are provided.

New initiatives cover the needs from the high school to continuous education in order to serve the computational intelligence community and all people interested in computational intelligence and its applications. Among these planned activities there are: student games-based competitions, pre-college educational programs, development of suggested university curricula, continuing education programs (especially for people in industry), and creation of the educational archive.


The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society sponsors and co-sponsors a wide variety of international conferences, some conference series for more than 20 years. These include the:

IEEE CIS also offers technical co-sponsorship to other conferences within the scope of the society. These include:

  • Asian Conference on Artificial Intelligence Technology (ACAIT)
  • International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence (ICAART)
  • International Conference on Behavioral and Social Computing (BESC)
  • International Conference on Emerging Techniques in Computational Intelligence (ICETCI)
  • International Conference on Industrial Artificial Intelligence (IAI)
  • International Conference on Information Processing and Management of Uncertainty in Knowledge-Based Systems (IPMU)
  • International Conference on Intelligent Computing in Data Sciences (ICDS)
  • International Conference on Intelligent Systems and Computational Intelligence (ICISCI)
  • International Conference on Machine Vision and Augmented Intelligence (MAI 2021)
  • International Conference on Process Mining (ICPM)
  • International Workshop on Semantic and Social Media Adaptation & Personalization (SMAP)
  • South-East Europe Design Automation, Computer Engineering, Computer Networks and Social Media Conference (SEEDA-CECNSM)

The society makes available a schedule of these conferences and events that is updated on a regular basis. [5]

Technical Activities

The CIS technical activities cover many exciting technologies in computational intelligence (CI) and their applications in a wide variety of areas. CI aims to mimicking nature for effective problem solving and the CIS technical activities promote scientific research, technological development, practical applications, and knowledge dissemination in CI.

The CIS currently have 11 Technical Committees (TCs), which can be grouped into the following three categories:

Technology-oriented TCs promote CI technologies. They are TCs on:

  • Neural Networks
  • Fuzzy Systems
  • Evolutionary Computation
  • Autonomous Mental Development
  • Adaptive Dynamic Programming and Reinforcement Learning

Application-oriented TCs deal with applications of CI technologies. They are TCs on:

  • Bioinformatics and Bioengineering
  • Computational Finance and Economics
  • Data Mining
  • Games

Incubator TCs identify and nurture new CI technologies and new areas for CI applications. They are TCs on:

  • Emergent Technologies
  • Intelligent Systems Applications

In addition, the CIS has the Standards Committee, dealing with standards, data sets, and software of interest to people working in CI, and the Technology Transfer Committee, promoting transfers of CI technologies to the industry. The first IEEE Standard sponsored by IEEE Computational Intelligence Society was IEEE 1855. [6] The second standard was IEEE 1849. [7]
