Sat 30 July - Mon 1 August 2022 Fuzhou, China

Welcome to ICNC-FSKD 2022

The 18th International Conference on Natural Computation, Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery (ICNC-FSKD 2022) will be held from July 30 to August 1, 2022, in Fuzhou, China. Due to COVID-19, ICNC-FSKD 2022 will be held in the physical/virtual hybrid mode. The conference supports for remote presence, both for speakers and for other participants who are unable or unwilling to come.

ICNC-FSKD is a premier international forum for scientists and researchers to present state-of-the-art neural computation and intelligent methods. These methods are inspired by nature, primarily biological, linguistic, physical systems and their applications to computers, circuits, systems, control, communications. The conference focuses on the emerging interdisciplinary area in which innovative theories and methodologies are being investigated and developed to explore complex and challenging problems. This conference builds on the success of the previous seventeen ICNC-FSKD conferences.

ICNC-FSKD 2022 welcomes innovative papers from both academia and industry on theory, algorithms, and applications of neural computation, evolutionary algorithms, fuzzy theory, knowledge discovery, and related areas. ICNC-FSKD 2022 proceedings will be published in the Springer Series “Lecture Notes on Data Engineering and Communications Technologies (LNDECT)” and will be submitted to EI Compendex (ICNC-FSKD 2005-2021 have all been indexed in EI Compendex). Most importantly, extended versions of selected best papers will appear in SCIE-indexed and EI-indexed international journals.

All papers must be written in English. There are no page limits for initial submissions. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field based on originality, significance, quality and clarity. At least one author of an accepted paper is expected to register for the conference.

All submissions must be written in English. There are no page limits for initial submissions. Authors will submit mamuscripts via the OpenConf Conference Management System here.

Submission Website Link

Before the submission, you are expected to make sure that your mamuscript complies with the format requirements (font size and spacing, margins, etc.).

Formatting Instructions

Submissions should be submitted electronically as a PDF file. We will not accept papers in any other format. Submissions can use this LaTex template or this Microsoft Word template that is known to comply with the formatting requirements. Your goal as anuthor is to produce a clearly readable submission within these constraints. Submissions not following these guidelines will be rejected without review.

Submission Instructions

  • Abstracts must have fewer than 250 words.
  • To maximize the chances that your paper will print correctly, please use only standard printer fonts (e.g., Times Roman, Helvetica, etc.) or standard TeX Computer Modern fonts.
  • The paper must print clearly on standard black-and-white printers. Reviewers are not required to view your paper in color.
  • Make sure that symbols and labels used in graphs are readable as printed, and not only with a 20x on-screen magnification.
  • Try to keep the file size under 2 MB.
  • Internet Explorer 9 users: Please click “Tools” and then “Compatibility View” before continuing, otherwise the web page may not work properly.

If network problems prevent you from completing online submission, please email your manuscript(s) together with your choice(s) of topic(s) to icnc-fskd@fzu.edu.cn .

As part of the submission process, authors of papers that describe experiments on human subjects, or that analyze nonpublic data derived from human subjects (even anonymized data), will be asked to certify that their work was vetted by an ethics review (e.g., IRB approval). We expect authors to follow the rules of their host institutions around data collection and experiments with human subjects.

During the conference ICNC-FSKD 2022, we will host a graduate forum for researchers and students in July 30, 2022, in Fuzhou, China. Due to COVID-19, the forum will be held in the physical/virtual hybrid mode. This is a chance to meet the researcher whose work you follow and discuss research with them! Also, students could meet their potential advisor in the following learning stage. More importantly, the forum grants students for free registration in the forum. Granted free registrations will share the keynotes and other technical sessions in the proceedings of ICNC-FSKD 2022. Unfortunately, it may be hard to provide free lunches or free dinners for the free registrations.

ICNC-FSKD 2022 Graduate Forum is calling for free student participation. The candidates should apply for the free registration grant via Graduate Forum Registration System here.

Graduate Forum Registration (free for students)

Application Instructions

  • Forum registration is not a substitute for conference paper registration. Each paper must have one dedicated registration with full payment received for the paper to be included in the conference proceedings.
  • The applicants first create an account and sign in the Graduate Forum Registration System. Secondly, you fill in the online table and check your registration information. If there is no incorrect information, you could print the registration document and sign your name on the document. Finally, you scan the signed copy and submit it to the system.
  • Grant decisions will be announced two weeks after the application deadline.
  • For enquiries related to the Graduate Forum, please reach out to our Graduate Forum Chair Longlong Liao (liaolonglong@fzu.edu.cn).
