Call For Papers

The 11th International Conference on Artificial Immune Systems - ICARIS 2012
August 28th - 31st, 2012
Taormina, Italy

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.

ICARIS 2012 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. We are accepting submissions to two distinct streams of research: Computational Immunology & Immunoinformatics, and Immunological Computation & Immune-inspired Engineering. In addition, we also invite submissions for oral/poster presentations and plenary talks. ICARIS 2012 will present a range of plenary lectures and tutorials to inspire and facilitate both the computer scientists and immunologists in their work.

All submitted papers will be double blind reviewed with at least three reviewers. Selection criteria will be based on relevance, originality, significance, impact, technical soundness and quality of the presentation. Manuscripts must not exceed 14 pages. Contributions are welcome to submission through the system available at The accepted papers will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Springer. The authors of the best accepted papers will be published in Immunomics Research Journal and Evolutionary Computation (TBC).

Target topics on Computational Immunology & Immunoinformatics:

Immune modelling
Structural Immunoinformatics
Epitope analysis and prediction
Analysis and prediction of MHCpeptide binding and minor
histocompatibility antigens
Databases and ontologies for Immunoinformatics
Analysis and prediction of Predictive models on organ transplantation
Vaccine design
Multi-agent based models
Gene networks and systems biology in immunity

Full paper submission: 1st March 2012
