Salem Benferhat (Professeur des Universités) devient ECCAI fellow en 2015.

Pour les nouveaux, voici la description de cette reconnaissance très sélective :

« The ECCAI Fellows program has been started in 1999 to recognize individuals who have made significant, sustained contributions to the field of artificial intelligence (AI) in Europe. Fellows’ accomplishments range from pioneering advances in the theory of AI, to unusual accomplishments in AI technology and applications. Usually only individuals who have made contributions to AI for a decade or more after receiving their Ph.D. (or are at an equivalent career stage) will be selected. Leadership in ECCAI or ECCAI member societies, support of forums for the exchange of ideas, and extended service for the international AI community also play a role in the selection process. Evidence of technical contribution will often be in the form of publications, but other evidence will also be considered, such as patent awards or statements of longstanding contribution to an industrial group effort. The ECCAI Fellows Program honors only a very small percentage of the total membership of all ECCAI member societies (up to a maximum of 3%). »
