 *** Call for Nominations for IJCAI-93 Awards ***

THE IJCAI AWARD FOR RESEARCH EXCELLENCE

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) and Marvin Minsky (1991).

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-93 in Chambery, France,
29 August - 3 September 1993. The accompanying note on Selection
Procedures provides the relevant details.

THE COMPUTERS AND THOUGHT AWARD

The Computers and Thought Lectures are presented at IJCAI conferences
by outstanding young scientists in the field of Artificial
Intelligence. Past recipients of this honour have been Terry
Winograd (1971), Patrick Winston (1973), Chuck Rieger (1975),
Douglas Lenat (1977), David Marr (1979), Gerald Sussman (1981),
Tom Mitchell (1983), Hector Levesque (1985), Johan de Kleer (1987),
Henry Kautz (1989), Rodney Brooks (1991) and Martha Pollack (1991).

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-93 in Chambery, France, 29 August
- 3 September 1993. The accompanying note on Selection Procedures
provides the relevant details.

SELECTION PROCEDURES FOR IJCAI AWARDS

Nominations for the IJCAI Research Excellence Award and the Computers
and Thought Award are invited from everyone in the international
Artificial Intelligence community.

There should be a nominator and a seconder, at least one of whom
should 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. They must agree to be nominated. There
are no other restrictions on nominees, nominators or seconders.
The nominators should prepare a short submission of less than 2,000
words, outlining the nominee's qualifications with respect to the
particular award.

An IJCAI Awards Search Committee has been established to encourage
high quality nominations for IJCAI Awards. It consists of the
three most recent past IJCAI conference chairs, currently: Alan
Bundy (convenor), Wolfgang Bibel and Barbara Grosz. Members of
this committee can be contacted for advice on nominations.

The IJCAI Award Selection Committee is the union of the Board of
Trustees and the former Trustees of IJCAII, the Advisory Committee
of IJCAI-93, the program chairs of the last three IJCAI conferences,
and the past recipients of the IJCAI Award for Research Excellence
and the IJCAI Distinguished Service Award, with nominees excluded.

Nominations should be sent to the Conference Chair for IJCAI-93 at
the address below. The deadline for nominations is 1 December 1992.
To avoid duplication of effort, nominators are requested to submit
the name of the person they are nominating by 1 November 1992 so that
people who propose to nominate the same individual may be so informed
and can coordinate their efforts.
