Second Annual CIS IEEE Video Competition

Following on from the first video competition, which produced two outstanding winning videos about fuzzy  logic, we invite you to produce an introductory 3-minute video about one of the following Computational  Intelligence fields of interest:

● Neural Networks
● Evolutionary Computation
● Hybrid Intelligent Systems

The winners of the previous competition can be seen at:

The aim of the video is to answer the question “what is...?”, for a Computational Intelligence field of interest, to an audience of high school students and the general public, with limited mathematical background. The video should also explain an example application of how the method can be used in everyday life. The video should be suitable for posting on YouTube and Facebook. The video competition is an exciting opportunity for all IEEE members to work together in conveying technical topics to nonexperts.

Prizes for entrants:

1st prize: 600USD + iPad* + CIS membership (1 year)
2nd prize: 500USD + CIS membership (1 year)
3rd prize: 400USD + CIS membership (1 year)

Prize for everyone: An iPad* will be raffled to anyone who “likes” a video on our page (excluding competition entrants and organisers).

Teams consist of 1 to 5 people. The team leader must be an IEEE member.

Registration deadline is 2nd September 2013.
Video submission deadline is 14th October 2013.
Winners will be notified on 1st December 2013.

Rules and submission details can be found at Please contact for specific queries.

*Disclaimer: The iPad prize does not apply to countries officially embargoed by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. In accordance with U.S. law, IEEE is unable to provide such goods to OFAC embargoed countries. In the case where the first place winner comes from an OFAC embargoed country, no iPad 2 will be awarded.
