ICNC'09-FSKD'09 Final Call: Extended Deadline
Dear Colleague, The 5th International Conference on Natural Computation (ICNC'09) and the 6th International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery (FSKD'09) will be held from 14 to 16 August 2009, in Tianjin, China. We cordially invite you to submit a paper(s) and/or organize an invited session. Due to numerous requests, the submission deadline is extended to 10 March 2009. Tianjin is one of the four municipalities in China. It is a financial and commercial center in North China and is known for its numerous travel resources and rich history, such as the Huangyaguan Great Wall, Dule Temple, Panshan Mountain and Food Street. It takes only 30 minutes to travel between Tianjin and Beijing by high-speed train. Selected best papers will appear in SCI-indexed journal(s), such as the Soft Computing journal. The rest of the accepted papers will appear in conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society, which will include the conference proceedings in the IEEE Xplore, as well as submit the conference proceedings to both EI and ISTP for indexing. ICNC'09-FSKD'09 aims to provide a high-level international forum for scientists and researchers to present the state of the art of intelligent methods inspired from nature, particularly biological and physical systems, with applications to data mining, manufacturing, design, 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. Previously, the joint conferences in 2005 through 2008 each attracted over 3000 submissions from more than 30 countries. To promote international participation of researchers from outside the country/region where the conference is held (i.e., China), foreign experts are encouraged to propose invited sessions. The first author of each paper in an invited session must not be affiliated with an organization in China. All papers in the invited sessions will be marked as "Invited Paper". One organizer for each invited session with at least 6 registered papers will enjoy an honorarium of USD 400. Invited session organizers will solicit submissions, conduct reviews and recommend accept/reject decisions on the submitted papers. Each invited session proposal should include the following information: (1) the name, bio, and contact information of each invited session organizer; (2) the title and a short synopsis of the invited session. Please send your proposal to Invited Session Chair firstname.lastname@example.org For more information, visit the conference web page: http://www.icnc09-fskd09.tjut.edu.cn If you have any questions after visiting the conference web page, please email the secretariat at email@example.com Join us at this major event in historic Tianjin !!!
