The IJCAI Award for Research Excellence is given at an IJCAI to a scientist who has carried out a program of research of consistently high quality yielding several substantial results. If the research program has been carried out collaboratively, the Award may be made jointly to the research team. Past recipients of this award are John McCarthy (1985), Allen Newell (1989), Marvin Minsky (1991), Ray Reiter (1993), and Herbert Simon (1995).
The Award carries with it a certificate and the sum of US$ 2,000 plus travel and living expenses for the IJCAI. The recipient will be invited to deliver an address on the nature and significance of the results achieved and write a paper for the conference proceedings. Primarily, however, the Award carries the honour of having one's work selected by one's peers as an exemplar of sustained research in Artificial Intelligence.
We hereby call for nominations for The IJCAI Award for Research Excellence, which will be presented at IJCAI-97 in Nogoya, Japan, 23 August - 29 August 1997. The accompanying note on Nomination Procedures provides the relevant details.
The Award carries with it a certificate and the sum of US$ 2,000 plus travel and living expenses for the IJCAI. The lecture is given one evening during the conference, and the public is invited to attend. The lecturer is encouraged to publish the lecture in the conference proceedings. The lectureship was established with royalties received from the book Computers and Thought, edited by Edward Feigenbaum and Julian Feldman; it is currently supported by income from IJCAII funds.
We hereby call for nominations for the Computers and Thought Award, which will be presented at IJCAI-97 in Nogoya, Japan, 23 August - 29 August 1997. The accompanying note on Nomination Procedures provides the relevant details.
There should be a nominator and a seconder, at least one of whom must not be from the same institution as the nominee. Nominees for the Computers and Thought Award cannot be older than 35 at the start of the conference. There are no other restrictions on nominees, nominators or seconders. Nominating and seconding statements for an award should be submitted on the Nomination and Reference Forms for the award. The forms, as well as suggestions for nominators, are available via http, gopher, or anonymous FTP at the following addresses, or directly from the IJCAII President at the address below.
Nominations should be sent to the President of IJCAII at the address below. The deadline for nominations is October 14, 1996. To avoid duplication of effort, nominators are requested to submit the name of the person they are nominating by September 23, 1996 so that people who propose to nominate the same individual may be so informed and can coordinate their efforts.
