CFP: ICNC'10-FSKD'10 Papers Due 15 January: EI Compendex & IEEE Xplore

We cordially invite you to submit a paper or invited session proposal to the upcoming 6th International Conference on Natural Computation (ICNC'10) and the 7th International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery (FSKD'10), to be jointly held from 10-12 August 2010, in Yantai, China.

Yantai was listed as one of the world's most inhabitable places by the United Nations and was recognized as the "most charming city of China" by China Central Television. Undulating hills rise above the area's many rivers and are framed by beaches and neighboring islands. During summer, the breeze wafts from the sea, and the hills become ornamented with a sea of wildflowers. Famous tourist attractions include the Tashan Mountain, Kongdong Island, and Penglai Pavilion Scenic Area. Seafood and fruits are plentiful in Yantai.

Selected best papers will appear in SCI-indexed journal(s). All papers in conference proceedings will be indexed by both EI Compendex and ISTP, as well as the IEEE Xplore.

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 2009 each attracted over 3000 submissions from around the world. ICNC'10-FSKD'10 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., 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’s 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 icnc2010@ytu.edu.cn
