Call For Papers

9th International Conference on Artificial Immune Systems
26th -- 29th July 2010, Edinburgh, 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 9th 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 2010 will again adopt an (optional) extended
abstract submission for the immune modelling 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.


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.

* Immune Modelling Stream

This stream is for work detailing models and simulations of real
and artificial immune systems. Authors are asked to be mindful
of the inter-disciplinary nature of the forum when presenting
their work. Extended abstracts or full papers are invited for
submission. Both will undergo the same review process for quality
and relevance.


Paper Submission 24rd March 2010
Review Rebuttal Period 13th -- 17th April
2010 Final Decision 20th April 2010
Camera Ready Copies 30th April 2010


Full papers should not be longer than 14 pages of LNCS, and extended
abstracts for the modelling stream not more than 3 pages. Overly
long submissions may be rejected at the reviewers discretion. All
submissions should follow the formatting guidelines detailed
by Springer

Following the reviews, a consultation period will be held, where
authors will have 1 week to respond to reviewers comments if they
wish. This is designed to increase the quality of papers, and remove
any misunderstandings that may happen as part of the review process.

See conference website for more submission details.


This year's ICARIS will be held in Scotland's historic capital,
Edinburgh. A city with an international reputation in cultural
events -- the ICARIS conference is squeezed between the International
Film Festival and the Fringe, the biggest arts and comedy festival
in the world.
