Second Immunoinformatics and Computational Immunology
Workshop (ICIW 2011)

To be held in conjunction with the ACM International Conference on Bioinformatics
and Computational Biology (ACM-BCB) (,
Chicago, IL, U.S.A. August 1-3, 2011

Call for Papers
Naturally emerging or reemerging diseases pose some of the most serious threats to human health. Computational methods are urgently needed for developing new vaccines, therapies, and models to improve our understanding of the immune system, and reliable tools for focusing experimental investigations.

The workshop aims to attract researchers from computer science, information science,
biomedicine, bioinformatics, systems biology, and immunology to share research
challenges, research results, methods, and advances in immunoinformatics and computational immunology. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
♦ Structural Immunoinformatics
♦ Epitope analysis and prediction
♦ MHC-peptide binding site analysis and prediction
♦ Immunoinformatics Databases, Knowledge Bases, Ontologies
♦ Computational modeling of immune system
♦ Analysis and prediction of minor histocompatibility antigens
♦ Predictive models for organ transplantation
♦ Immunogenomics
♦ Vaccine design
♦ Artificial immune systems and other biologically-inspired paradigms
♦ Multi-agent based modeling of immune response
♦ Allergenicity prediction
♦ Gene expression changes in adaptive immune response
♦ Comparative approaches to immunology

Important Dates

Poster Submission

We invite authors to submit one-page extended abstracts. Submissions should be sent
to before May 15, 2011. Notification of acceptance will be given
by May 31, 2011. Accepted abstracts will be selected for oral or poster presentation and
will be included in the workshop proceedings in CD.
