The 2018 14th International
Conference on Natural Computation, Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery (ICNC-FSKD 2018) will be held from 28-30
July 2018 in Huangshan, China. Huangshan (literal meaning: Yellow Mountain) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of China's major tourist destinations. It is well known for its scenery, sunsets, peculiarly-shaped granite peaks, Huangshan pine trees, hot springs, winter snow, and views of the clouds from above. Huangshan is a frequent subject of traditional Chinese paintings and literature, as well as modern photography.
A famous saying goes: "You don't need to see any more mountains after seeing 'the Five Mountains', and you don't need to see the other four mountains after seeing Huangshan."
As with the 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 (All previous ICNC-FSKD
conferences from 2005 to 2016 have been indexed in Ei Compendex and
IEEE Xplore). Extended versions of selected best papers will appear
in SCIE-indexed international journals, such as the International Journal of Fuzzy Systems - Springer (IF:2.198), Journal Of Supercomputing (IF:1.326), Neural Computing and Applications (IF:2.505), Theoretical Computer Science – C. Natural Computing (IF:0.696, CCF B).
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 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
