The International Neural Network Society's Awards Program is
established to recognize individuals who have made outstanding
contributions in the field of Neural Networks. Up to three awards, at
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:
- The Hebb Award - recognizes achievement in biological learning.
- The Helmholtz Award - recognizes achievement in
sensation/perception.
- The Gabor Award - recognizes achievement in
engineering/application.

Young Investigator 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.

Nominations:
1. The Awards Committee should receive nominations of no more than
two pages in length, specifying:
- The award category (Hebb, Helmholtz, Gabor, or Young
Investigator)for which the candidate is being nominated.
- The reasons for which the nominee should be considered for the
award.
