The 2013 9th International Conference on Natural Computation (ICNC'13) and the 2013 10th International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery (FSKD'13) will be jointly held from 23-25 July 2013 in Shenyang, China. Shenyang, the largest city in Northeast China, has a celebrated history dating back to the Warring States of 476 BC. It is the birthplace of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and has many cultural relics which symbolize the prosperity and subsequent decline of the last feudal dynasty in China. Shenyang has one of China's the two best preserved imperial palace complexes, along with the famous Zhaoling Tomb and Fuling Tomb. Shenyang is also renowned for its mild summer and mouth-watering local food.
As with past ICNC-FSKD conferences, all papers in conference proceedings will be submitted to both EI Compendex and ISTP (ISI Proceedings), as well as IEEE Xplore (ICNC-FSKD 2005-2012 have all been indexed in Ei Compendex). Extended versions of selected best papers will appear in an ICNC-FSKD special issue of International Journal of Intelligent Systems, an SCI-indexed journal with an Impact Factor 1.653 (ICNC 2013: Conference Record Number 30421; IEEE Catalog Number CFP13CNC-ART; ISBN 978-1-4673-4714-3; ISSN 2157-9563; FSKD 2013: Conference Record Number 30427; IEEE Catalog Number CFP13FSK-ART; ISBN 978-1-4673-5253-6).
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 computers, circuits, systems, control, communications, 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. The registration fee of US$390 includes proceedings, lunches, dinners, banquet, coffee breaks, and all technical sessions.
Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts written in English. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field based on originality, significance, quality and clarity. Authors should use the Latex style files or MS-Word templates obtained from the conference site to format their papers. Authors should submit PDF files of their manuscripts via the online submission system. Submissions imply that the papers have not been submitted elsewhere and will not be submitted elsewhere for publications before the review decisions of this conference.
