PUBLICATION: Revised versions of selected papers will be published
in a special issue of Synthese. The deadline for submission of the
final version of the paper is 1 March 2008.

The conference is generously supported by the Tilburg Center for
Logic and Philosophy of Science and the IHPST, Paris.

The conference language is English.

Computer simulations play an important role in many scientific
contexts, and they are often based on a particular model of the
phenomenon under investigation. This raises questions both about the
nature and methodology of simulations themselves, as well as their
relations to models. These issues have recently attracted some
attention, and were also discussed at the 'Models and Simulations'
conference in Paris in June 2006. The aim of the present conference
is both to provide a forum to continue ongoing debates and to try to
slightly shift the focus of attention. So far case studies played an
important role in the debates over models and simulations and a lot
has been learned from them. We are now also interested in theoretical
approaches that attempt to rationalize these cases and help
furthering our philosophical understanding of how models and
simulations explain, how they are confirmed, how they relate to
theories and other models, and how they represent.

Please submit extended abstracts of 1000 words through our abstract
submission system (see website) by 15 April 2007; decisions will be
made by 15 May.

    The 3rd International Conference on Natural Computation (ICNC'07)
         The 4th International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and
                        Knowledge Discovery (FSKD'07)
                   24 - 27 August 2007, Haikou, China
               *** Submission Deadline: 15 March 2007 ***
               Call for Papers & Special Session Proposals
The joint ICNC'07-FSKD'07 will be held in Haikou, China. Haikou, the
capital city of Hainan Province, is a pleasant modern city with a number
of historical and cultural sights to see and to hold you for a few days
before heading off to Hainan's beautiful beaches and inland villages.
ICNC'07-FSKD'07 aims to provide an international forum for scientists
and researchers to present the state of the art of intelligent methods
inspired from nature, including biological, linguistic, ecological, and
physical systems, with applications to data mining, manufacturing,
design, reliability, and more. It is an exciting and emerging inter-
disciplinary area in which a wide range of techniques and methods are
being studied for dealing with large, complex, and dynamic problems.
Previously, the joint conferences in 2005 and 2006 each attracted over
3100 submissions from more than 30 countries.
All accepted papers will be indexed by both EI (Compendex) and ISTP.
Furthermore, extended versions of many good papers will be published in
SCI-indexed journals, as well as Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
and Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) that will be indexed
in SCI-Expanded.
In addition to regular sessions, participants are encouraged to organize
special sessions on specialized topics. Each special session should have
at least 4 papers. Special session organizers will solicit submissions,
conduct reviews and recommend accept/reject decisions on the submitted
