On August 10, at a ceremony in Baden-Baden (Germany), Dr. George Klir received an honorary doctoral degree (Doctor Honoris Causa) from the International Institute for Advanced Studies in Systems Research and Cybernetics (located in Baden-Baden) with the following citation: "in recognition of his outstanding pioneering and innovative scholarly work in Systems Science." This is Dr. Klir’s sixth honorary doctorate
In addition, IEEE Computational Intelligence Society has awarded Dr. Klir the 2007 CIS Fuzzy Systems Pioneer Award for pioneering research in fuzzy set theory, fuzzy systems, fuzzy measure theory, and generalized information theory. Over the past year, Dr. Klir coauthored a book titled "Uncertainty Modeling and Analysis in Engineering and the Sciences,” with Professor Ayyub of the University of Maryland. Currently, Dr. Klir is working with Professor Zhenyuan Wang of the University of Nebraska on a very challenging book titled "Generalized Measure Theory" (expected date of publication is early 2007). A previous book (November 2005), “Uncertainty and Information,” has been selected as the "Award-Winning Book of the Year" by the International Institute for Advanced Studies in Systems Research and Cybernetics.
