INNS Membership Progression Scheme 2011

The International Neural Network Society (INNS) is the organization  
for individuals interested in a theoretical and computational  
understanding of the brain/mind and applying that knowledge to develop  
new and more effective forms of machine intelligence. INNS was formed  
in 1987 by the leading scientists in the neural network field. The  
field of neural networks encourages interdisciplinary perspectives,  
and INNS' membership reflects this diversity. Members represent a  
variety of fields, backgrounds and level of interest.

INNS has introduced a new membership category of Senior Member (SM) to  
recognize INNS members for their contributions, and to allow for a  
progression of the INNS members to a higher recognition membership  
status. We call for 2011 Senior Member nominations.

For 2011, on-line senior membership nomination and application can be  
made through the website at:
<> or  
alternatively, you can sent via e-mail a nomination letter and a CV of  
the candidate to the INNS VP for Membership, Irwin King <king at 
 > under the Subject line: “2011 INNS Senior Membership Nomination for  
[Applicant's Name]”, on or before July 22, 2011.

Final confirmation of the 2011 Senior Members will be made by the INNS  
Board of Governors and appropriate announcements will then be made, at  
least on the INNS website,, and in the Tri-Society
