Fellow Nominations (closed)
Cognitive Science Society Fellows nominations 2021
Open: October 5th – November 1st 2021
The Cognitive Science Society invites nominations for Fellows of the Society. This honor recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to Cognitive Science.
Nominations are due by Monday, November 1st, 2021
The criteria for being a Fellow of the Society are as follows. Nominators should aim to address each in their letters of nomination.
(1) A Fellow’s research should exhibit sustained excellence.
(2) A Fellow’s research should exhibit sustained impact on the Cognitive Science community.
(3) Fellows are expected to uphold commonly held standards of professional ethics and scientific integrity.
(4) Ideally, a Fellow’s research should be inter-disciplinary, but disciplinary research having a sustained impact on Cognitive Science is appropriate.
(5) Ideally, a Fellow should be a member of Cognitive Science Society with regular participation in the community via publications, attendance, or mentorship.
Other factors being equal, the Fellows election process attempts to balance diversity in gender, traditionally under-represented minorities, geographical region, and disciplinary expertise. Unusually high levels of service are not sufficient for becoming a Fellow. Fellow status is intended to be a lifetime honor; CSS reserves the right to rescind in exceptional cases where commonly held standards of professional ethics and scientific integrity have been violated. New fellows will be invited to publish a paper on their research in topICS.
A list of current Fellows is available below.
To nominate an individual, please submit the following:
- A single-spaced 1- or 2-page description of why the candidate merits selection as a Fellow with respect to the above criteria. The nominating individual(s) should be specific in documenting the sustained excellence and impact of the candidate’s research, including influential papers, citation counts, and other relevant measures.
- A curriculum vitae for the candidate and for all nominating individuals.
- Pointers to one or more web sites or other sources that provide information about the candidate, if available.

The Cognitive Science Society is pleased to announce the establishment of the CogSci Grove which aims to mobilise cognitive scientists to offset carbon emissions associated with their professional activities. To date, 1681 trees have been planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
