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 is the world's cultural and natural heritage, the world's geological park, is a national scenic area, the national civilized scenic tourist area, the national 5A-class tourist attractions, and the Yangtze River, the Great Wall, the Yellow River with the magnificent mountains and rivers and splendid culture of outstanding representatives, Known as "paradise on earth", "the best in the world Qishan", known as Qi Song, rocks, sea of clouds, hot springs, winter snow "five absolutely" known to the world. The territory of the peak of the show, monsters everywhere, there are more than 1000 meters above the peak, "Lotus", "bright top", "days are" the three main peaks, more than 1,800 meters above sea level. Ming Dynasty traveler Xu Xiake has twice boarded Huangshan, praise: "thin sea and abroad, such as emblem of Huangshan, Huangshan Mountain without mountains, view only carry on!" Descendants accordingly summarized as "Wu Yue return to see mountains, Huangshan return See Yue ".
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
