Professor Janusz Kacprzyk is the first East and Central European awardee of the Individual Award for Outstanding Contributions in the Field of Computational Intelligence by the International Neural Network Society, Indian Chapter (INNS - India). His work in this area was initiated at IIASA in the late 1970s.

Also Obuda University recognized Kacprzyk's prominent achievements in the fields of computational intelligence, multi-stage fuzzy control, and fuzzy dynamic programming with an honorary doctorate. His acceptance speech focused on the evolution of higher education, and in this context, Kacprzyk mentioned that IIASA is a place where both young and experienced individuals gain something they cannot receive at a top traditional university.

Professor Janusz Kacprzyk is the Head of the Intelligent Systems Laboratory at the Systems Research Institute, Polish Academy of Sciences. His research interests include: uncertainty and imprecision in systems modelling; intelligent decision support systems; data mining and knowledge discovery; soft computing, theory and applications; and fuzzy logic.

Professor Kacprzyk's relationship with IIASA began in 1977 and continues today. Professor Kacprzyk first began to work on an agricultural planning model in the Regional Development Group led by Murat Albegov, which resulted in a fuzzy model of integrated regional development. Then from 1984-1988, Professor Kacprzyk collaborated with Dr. Serguey A. Orlovski on the Large International Rivers Projects. The outcome then was a novel fuzzy querying interface with linguistic quantifiers as a decision support systems. The work Professor Kacprzyk developed at IIASA has lead to five book publications and more than 350 paper publications. More recently in 2009, Professor Kacprzyk was a member of IIASA's Strategic Plan 2011-2020 Committee.
