IEEE CIS Distinguished Lecture Program: Call For Nominations

The CIS Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) supports local CIS Chapters and CIS members by helping them to invite leading researchers in their respective fields. DLP speakers act as ambassadors of the society during their visit to local chapters and foster professional activities in the area.

Nominations are solicited for Distinguished Lecturers for the period of 2017-2019. Nominations can be made by the following CIS members: Chapter Chairs, TC Chairs, AdCom/ExCom Members, EICs, and past distinguished lecturers. Nominations should be submitted to the Chair of the CIS Distinguished Lecturer Program, Barbara Hammer Please submit nominations and/or encourage qualified members to nominate DLP speakers by the AUGUST 30, 2016 deadline.

CALL FOR PAPERS: Symposium on "Intelligence for Embedded and Cyber-physical Systems" (IntECS 2016) at IEEE Symposium Series in Computational Intelligence 2016

6 – 9 December 2016, Athens, Greece (

IntECS 2016 Web site:

*Important Announcement: DEADLINE EXTENSION*
The symposium on "Intelligence for Embedded and Cyberphisical Systems"  (IntECS 2016)  is extending its paper submission to August 15, 2016 (according to the SSCI 2016 new deadline). Please note that this is a strict deadline and that there will be no further extensions. Therefore, we would like to kindly encourage you to submit your paper(s) early rather than wait until the very end. Thank you for considering to submit to the symposium and we look forward to having the opportunity seeing you in Athens!

Paper submission:  August 15, 2016 (Extended and final)
Author notifications: September 12, 2016 
Camera-ready submission: October 10, 2016
Early registration: October 10, 2016
Conference Dates: December 6 - 9, 2016

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in designing embedded and cyber-physical systems featuring intelligent skills. Beside addressing the specific tasks they have been designed for, these systems are expected, for example, to autonomously make decisions/activate reactions, perform self-diagnosis, and learn from and interact with the operating environment.

This symposium addresses novel and emerging computational-intelligence and machine-learning solutions to provide such an intelligent behavior to embedded and cyberphisical systems. IntECS aspires at providing a forum for researchers who are actively working on intelligent embedded and cyberphisical systems and, more in general, on computational intelligent solutions for real world applications.

The symposium will be held within the IEEE 2016 Symposium Series in Computational Intelligence (6 – 9 December 2016, Athens, Greece)
