Artificial Immune Systems: Algorithms, Simulation, Modelling & Theory
IEEE CEC 2017 Special Session
June 20-23, 2017, Donostia - San Sebastián, Spain

*** SUBMISSION deadline: January 16, 2017

The Immune System protects organisms against diseases, and over the years has been an important source of inspiration for the development of algorithms to be applied in a wide range of applications, such as learning, pattern recognition, optimisation and classification. Many of these algorithms are built on solid theoretical foundations, through understanding mathematical models and computational simulation of aspects of the immune system. The scope of this research area ranges from modelling to simulation of the immune system, to the development of novel engineering solutions to complex problems, and bridges several disciplines to provide new insights into immunology, computer science, mathematics and engineering.

This special session aims to focus on the recent advances on Artificial Immune Systems (AIS) field, also offering new conceptual models for understanding the dynamics that underlie the immune system.

This special session is supported by IEEE CIS Task Force on Artificial Immune Systems (

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Computational & Mathematical modelling of the Immune System;
- Theoretical aspects of immune inspired algorithms;
- Novel algorithms and new immune operators;
- Benchmarking immune inspired algorithms against other techniques;
- Empirical and Theoretical investigations into performance and complexity of immune inspired algorithms;
- Hybridisation of immune inspired algorithms with other techniques;
- Systems & Synthetic Immunology.

All the papers have to be submitted electronically through the congress application. The deadline for contribution paper submission is *January 16, 2017*.

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers on any topics related to AIS.

paper submission: January 16, 2017
notification of acceptance: February 26, 2017
final paper submission: March 12, 2017
Conference dates: June 5-8, 2017

Manuscripts should be prepared according to the standard format and page limit of regular papers specified in CEC 2017 webpage (, and submitted via the official submission system.

Special session papers are treated the same way as regular conference papers. Please specify that your paper is for the special session on AIS: Algorithms, Simulation, Modelling & Theory. All accepted papers will be published in the CEC electronic proceedings and included in the IEEE Xplore digital library, and indexed by EI Compendex.
