The 2012 8th International Conference on Natural Computation (ICNC'12) and the 2012 9th International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery (FSKD'12) will be jointly held from 29-31 May 2012, in Chongqing, China. The deadline for the 2nd (final) round of submissions is 8 March 2012 (papers already submitted in the previous round should not be re-submitted and will receive review notifications on 9 March).
Renowned as the Mountain City, Chongqing is a magnet for visitors from home and abroad for its cultural heritage and numerous attractions. There are many karst caves, hot springs, and gorges in the area. Major tourist spots in and near Chongqing include Dazu Grottoes (rock carvings began in the Tang Dynasty 650 A.D.), Three Gorges, Jinyun Mountain Natural Reserve, Hongya Cave, Shibaozhai, Wulong Karst, etc..
All papers in the conference proceedings will be indexed by both EI Compendex and ISTP as with the past ICNC-FSKD conferences. Extended versions of selected best papers will appear in an ICNC-FSKD special issue of Computers & Mathematics with Applications, an SCI-indexed journal. ICNC'12-FSKD'12 is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society.
ICNC-FSKD is a premier international forum for scientists and researchers to present the state of the art of data mining and intelligent methods inspired from nature, particularly biological, linguistic, and physical systems, with applications to computers, circuits, systems, control, communications, and more. This is an exciting and emerging interdisciplinary area in which a wide range of theory and methodologies are being investigated and developed to tackle complex and challenging problems. The registration fee of US-D430 includes proceedings, lunches, dinners, banquet, coffee breaks, and all technical sessions.
To promote international participation of researchers from outside the country/region where the conference is held (i.e., China's mainland), researchers outside of Chinas mainland are encouraged to propose invited sessions. An honorarium of US-D400 will be enjoyed by the organizer(s) for each completed (with at least 6 registered papers) invited session. The first author of each paper in an invited session must not be affiliated with an organization in China’s mainland. "(Invited Paper)" may be added below the title of each paper in the invited sessions. Invited session organizers will solicit submissions, conduct reviews and recommend accept/reject decisions on the submitted papers. Invited session organizers will be able to set their own submission and review schedules, as long as a set of recommended papers is determined by 21 March 2012. Each invited session proposal should include: (1) the name, bio, and contact information of each organizer of the invited session; (2) the title and a short synopsis of the invited session. Please send your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
