Fellows of the Society
Cognitive Science Society Fellows nominations
Open: 25th September – 23rd October 2020
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 Friday, 23rd October, 2020
The criteria for being a Fellow of the Society are as follows:
(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 meet 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 the Cognitive Science Society with regular participation in the community via publications, attendance, or mentorship.
Unusually high levels of service are not sufficient for becoming a Fellow. All other factors being equal, the Fellows election process attempts to balance diversity in gender, traditionally under-represented minorities, geographical region of the world, and disciplinary expertise.
A list of current Fellows is available here.
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.
