CFP: ICNC'11-FSKD'11 - Natural Computation/ Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discover


Dear Colleague,
We cordially invite you to submit a paper or invited session proposal to the upcoming 7th International Conference on Natural Computation (ICNC'11) and the 8th International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery (FSKD'11), to be jointly held from 26-28 July 2011, in Shanghai, China.
Shanghai, an open city on the coast and a famous historical and cultural city, is a gate to the Yangtze River delta. It is a municipality under the direct jurisdiction of the Central Government, the largest economic and trade center, a comprehensive industrial base and the leading port in China. Attractions include Yuyuan Garden ("Happy Garden" built in Ming Dynasty), Shanghai Museum with 120,000 pieces of rare relics, Shanghai World Financial Center, Jade Buddha Temple (Song Dynasty), Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Zhujiajiao Water Town, and Expo 2010 site.
All papers in conference proceedings will be indexed by both EI Compendex and ISTP, as well as included in the IEEE Xplore (IEEE Conference Record Number for ICNC11: 18082; IEEE Conference Record Number for FSKD11: 18083). Extended versions of selected best papers will appear in an ICNC-FSKD special issue of International Journal of Intelligent Systems, an SCI-indexed journal (Impact Factor: 1.194).
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 signal processing, design, and more. Previously, the joint conferences in 2005 through 2010 each attracted over 3000 submissions from around the world. ICNC'11-FSKD'11 is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society. The registration fee of US*D 390 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., Chinas mainland), researchers outside of Chinas mainland are encouraged to propose invited sessions. The first author of each paper in an invited session must not be affiliated with an organization in Chinas mainland. All papers in the invited sessions can be marked as "Invited Paper". One organizer for each invited session with at least 6 registered papers will enjoy an honorarium of US*D 400. 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 list of recommended papers is determined by 30 March 2010. 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 icnc-fskd@dhu.edu.cn
