The joint ICNC'08-FSKD'08 will be held in Jinan, China. Jinan is the 
capital of Shandong Province, which is known for the home of Confucius, 
the Taishan Mountain, and the Baotu Spring.

ICNC'08-FSKD'08 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, ecological, and physical 
systems, with applications to data mining, manufacturing, design, and 
more. It is an exciting and emerging interdisciplinary 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, 2006 and 2007 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.  Each invited 
session should have at least 4 papers. Invited session organizers will 
solicit submissions, conduct reviews and recommend accept/reject 
decisions on the submitted papers. All invited session organizers will 
be acknowledged in the conference proceedings. Each invited session 
proposal should include the following information: (1) the name(s) and 
contact information of invited session organizer(s); (2) the title and
