most one in each category, are presented annually to senior, highly
accomplished researchers for outstanding contributions made in the
field of Neural Networks.

The Hebb, Helmholtz and Gabor Awards:

Up to two awards are presented annually to individuals with no more
than five years postdoctoral experience and who are under forty years
of age, for significant contributions in the field of Neural Networks.

1. The Awards Committee should receive nominations of no more than
