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

                27 - 29 August 2005, Changsha, China

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


The 2005 International Conference on Natural Computation (ICNC'05) 
and the 2005 International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge 
Discovery (FSKD'05) will be jointly held in Changsha, China from 
27 to 29 August 2005. The conferences 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 interdisciplinary area in which a wide range of 
techniques and methods are being studied for dealing with large, 
complex, and dynamic problems. Specific areas include 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 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 and meals. 

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.
