Call For Papers

CALL FOR PAPERS
10th International Conference on Artificial Immune Systems in Cambridge, UK

Artificial immune systems (AIS) is a diverse and maturing area of research that bridges the disciplines of immunology and engineering. The scope of AIS ranges from modelling and simulation of the immune system through to immune-inspired algorithms and engineering solutions.

In recent years, algorithms inspired by theoretical immunology have been applied to a wide variety of domains, including computer security, fault tolerance, data-mining and optimisation. Increasingly, theoretical insight into aspects of artificial and real immune systems has been sought through mathematical and computational modelling and analysis.

The 10th International Conference on AIS (ICARIS) aims to build on the success of previous years to provide a forum for AIS researchers in academia and industry to present and discuss their latest advances. In addition to peer-reviewed papers, ICARIS will present a range of plenary lectures and tutorials to inspire and facilitate both the computer scientist and immunologist in their work.

To encourage dialogue with the theoretical and clinical immunology communities, ICARIS 2011 will again adopt an (optional) extended abstract (2-6 pages) submission for the Immunoinformatics & Computational Immunology Stream. Full papers are welcome, but extended versions of abstracts will not be required. All accepted abstracts will be published alongside full papers in the proceedings.
Streams

The conference programme will be partitioned into three streams:
Theoretical Stream

This stream is for papers describing theoretical aspects of AIS, excluding theoretical immunology. This includes (but is not limited to) mathematical modelling of algorithms, convergence analysis, empirical investigation into algorithm performance and complexity analysis. To make sure the paper appeals to the widest possible audience, the mathematics should be clearly presented, and the paper should discuss the practical implications of any theoretical results.
Applied Stream

This stream is for papers describing the application of AIS to computational and engineering problems. The problem domain should be clearly explained, detailing why it is challenging and why AIS are a suitable methodology to use. Experiments should be carefully explained, with the expectation that appropriate statistical analysis of results will be used to help draw conclusions. Where possible, the approach taken should be compared with alternative strategies.
Immunoinformatics & Computational Immunology Stream

The goal of the Immunoinformatics & Computational Immunology stream is to attract researchers from computer science, information science, engineering, biomathematics, biomedicine, bioinformatics, systems biology, and immunology to share and exchange their knowledge of the state-of-the-art research issues, methodologies, ideas, and challenges. Topics of interest include:

* Immune modelling (the stream of the previous years);
* Structural Immunoinformatics;
* Epitope analysis and prediction;
* Analysis and prediction of MHC-peptide binding;
* Databases and ontologies for Immunoinformatics;
* Analysis and prediction of minor histocompatibility antigens;
* Predictive models on organ transplantation;
* Immunogenomics;
* Vaccine design;
* Multi-agent based models of immunity;
* Gene networks and systems biology in immunity;
* Allergenicity prediction.

Paper Submissions

All papers will undergo a double blind review process. Authors are requested to submit a PDF file no later than the submission deadline 28th of Feb.2011. The authors name and affiliation should not appear on the paper. Please follow the formatting instructions at the Springer-Verlag LNCS site. Papers should be a maximum of fourteen (14) pages. To encourage dialog with the theoretical and clinical immunology communities, ICARIS 2011 will again adopt an (optional) extended abstract (2-6 pages) submission for the Immunoinformatics & Computational Immunology Stream. Full papers are welcome, but extended versions of abstracts will not be required. All accepted abstracts will be published alongside full papers in the proceedings. Authors must make it clear in their submission which stream the paper is to be considered for.
 Papers should be submitted via the submissions section of the website. You will be provided with a reference number that will be used throughout the submission process.

All papers will undergo a double blind review process. Authors are requested to submit a PDF.

The proceedings will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Springer. Best Papers will be published in Evolutionary Computation Journal and BMC Bioinformatics.
