    2005 International Conference on Natural Computation (ICNC'05) 
   International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery 

                27 - 29 August 2005, Changsha, China 

               Home Page: http://www.xtu.edu.cn/nc2005 

             *** Submission Deadline: 15 March 2005 *** 


The ICNC'05-FSKD'05 will feature the most up-to-date research results 
in computational algorithms inspired from nature, including 
biological, ecological, and physical systems. It is an exciting and 
emerging inter-disciplinary area in which a wide range of techniques 
and methods are being studied for dealing with large, complex, and 
dynamic problems. The joint conferences will also promote cross- 
fertilization over these exciting and yet closely-related areas. 
Registration to either conference will entitle a participant to the 
proceedings and technical sessions of both conferences, as well as 
the conference banquet, buffet lunches, and tours to some attractions 
in Changsha. 

Specific areas include, but are not limited to neural computation, 
evolutionary computation, quantum computation, DNA computation, 
chemical computation, information processing in cells and tissues, 
molecular computation, computation with words, fuzzy computation, 
granular computation, artificial life, swarm intelligence, ants 
colony, artificial immune systems, etc., with applications to 
knowledge discovery, finance, operations research, and more. 

The ICNC'05 and FSKD'05 conference proceedings will be published in 
Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and Lecture Notes 
in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI), respectively. Both the LNCS and 
LNAI are indexed in SCI-Expanded. A selected number of authors will be 
invited to expand and revise their papers for possible inclusions in 
peer-reviewed international journals / edited books. 

Special Sessions 
In addition to regular sessions, participants are encouraged to 
organize special sessions on specialized topics. Each special session 
should have at least 4 papers. Special session organizers will solicit 
submissions and conduct reviews on the submitted papers. Proposals for 
special sessions should be sent to the respective Program Chairs, 
        Ke Chen (neural computation, Ke.Chen at manchester.ac.uk) 
        Yew Soon Ong (other topics in ICNC'05, asysong at ntu.edu.sg) 
        Yaochu Jin (FSKD'05, yaochu.jin at honda-ri.de)

About Changsha, Hunan, China 
Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province, is a historic and cultural 
city in southern China and a busy port on the Xiangjiang River, with 
a population over 6 million. Founded 3000 years ago, the city became 
the capital of the Zhou state (951-960 AD) and a leading commercial 
center during the Song dynasty (960-1279 AD). Changsha International 
Airport is easily accessible with direct flights to all major 
domestic and some international destinations. Other famous tourist 
destinations in Hunan include the Zhangjiajie National Park (natural 
heritage listed by UN) and Fenghuang (Phoenix) Ancient City.
