Dear Colleague,

The 5th International Conference on Natural Computation (ICNC'09) and 
the 6th International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge 
Discovery (FSKD'09) will be held from 14 to 16 August 2009, in Tianjin, 
China. We cordially invite you to submit a paper(s) and/or organize an 
invited session. Due to numerous requests, the submission deadline is 
extended to 10 March.

Tianjin is one of the four municipalities in China. It is a financial 
and commercial center in North China and is known for its numerous 
travel resources and rich history, such as the Huangyaguan Great Wall, 
Dule Temple, Panshan Mountain and Food Street. 

Selected best papers will appear in SCI-indexed journal(s), such as 
the Soft Computing journal. The rest of the accepted papers will appear 
in conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society, which 
will include the conference proceedings in the IEEE Xplore, as well as
submit the conference proceedings to both EI and ISTP for indexing. 

ICNC'09-FSKD'09 aims to provide a high-level international forum for 
scientists and researchers to present the state of the art of 
intelligent methods inspired from nature, particularly biological and 
physical systems, with applications to data mining, manufacturing, 
design, 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. 

Previously, the joint conferences in 2005 through 2008 each attracted 
over 3000 submissions from more than 30 countries.

To promote international participation of researchers from outside the 
country/region where the conference is held (i.e., China), foreign 
experts are encouraged to propose invited sessions. The first author 
of each paper in an invited session must not be affiliated with an 
organization in China. All papers in the invited sessions will be 
marked as "Invited Paper". One organizer for each invited session with 
at least 6 registered papers will enjoy an honorarium of USD 400. 
Invited session organizers will solicit submissions, conduct reviews 
and recommend accept/reject decisions on the submitted papers. Each 
invited session proposal should include the following information: 
(1) the name, bio, and contact information of each invited session 
organizer; (2) the title and a short synopsis of the invited session. 
Please send your proposal to Invited Session Chair byzhang at google.com
