The 3nd International Conference on Natural Computation (ICNC’07) and the 4rd International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery (FSKD’07) will be jointly held in Haikou, China. Haikou, the capital of Hainan Province of China, is a pleasant modern city with a few historical and cultural sights of interest to see and do to hold you for a few days before heading off to the beaches or inland of Hainan’s villages. ICNC’07- FSKD’07 aims to provide a high-level international forum for scientists and researchers to present the state of the art of 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.
Haikou, known also as the 'Coconut City', is the capital of Hainan Province, China's second largest island. The city is the provincial administrative center of Hainan as well being the focus of the local economy, culture and transportation. Haikou stands at the northern end of Hainan Island, on the west bank of the Nandu River estuary. This river is the longest on the island and the city's name appropriately means 'Mouth of the Sea'.
Hainan University is the only comprehensive university in this province. Spurred on by a wave of building institutions of higher learning during the 15th FYP, Hainan University has been selected as the key project jointly sponsored by the National Ministry of Education, the National Ministry of Finance and the People’s Government of Hainan. Located in the capital city of Haikou in Hainan Province, Hainan University is bounded by Qiongzhou Strait to the north and Nandu Jiang River to the south. The campus is characterized by its tropical marine shoreline with coconut-scented breeze and undulating expanse of sea and lake waters rippling in the sunshine. Hainan University covers 150 hectares of land, offering an ideal surrounding for learning and growing in a domain of wisdom.
