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.

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 Newsletter.
