ICNC'07-FSKD'07 aims to provide an international forum for scientists
and researchers to present the state of the art of intelligent methods
inspired from nature, including biological, linguistic, ecological, and
physical systems, with applications to data mining, manufacturing,
design, reliability, and more. It is an exciting and emerging inter-
disciplinary area in which a wide range of techniques and methods are
being studied for dealing with large, complex, and dynamic problems.

Previously, the joint conferences in 2005 and 2006 each attracted over
3100 submissions from more than 30 countries.

All accepted papers will be indexed by both EI (Compendex) and ISTP.
Furthermore, extended versions of many good papers will be published in
SCI-indexed journals, as well as Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
and Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) that will be indexed
in SCI-Expanded.

In addition to regular sessions, participants are encouraged to organize
special sessions on specialized topics. Each special session should have
