Welcome to the on-line home of Artificial Immune Systems


  • Update on ICARIS: Following the drop in submissions in 2013 coupled with the difficult economic climate that led us to run ICARIS 2013 as a track at ECAL, the new ICARIS SC is currently working hard to evaluate the best way forward for ICARIS in the future, in terms of both its frequency and format. More news will be posted here as soon as possible but it is unlikely that ICARIS will run in 2014 as a standalone conference.

    However - in the meantime we are pleased to support a proposal to run an AIS track at GECCO 2014 which will provide an outlet for people working within AIS to publish their work next year, particularly for those working on applications/algorithmic work.

    Please note that the GECCO track is not a replacement for ICARIS but will hopefully provide a useful interim venue for many AIS researchers to meet and share their work with each other and the wider community in 2014 while the future of ICARIS is resolved.

  • The membership of the ICARIS Steering Committee has changed : We welcome Dr Thomas Jansen, Dr Melanie Moses and Dr Joannes Textor to the Committee. The Committee would like to extend their thanks to the retiring members (Prof Jon Timmis, Dr Peter Bentley, Prof. Stephanie Forrest, Prof. Guiseppe Nicosia, Prof. Christian Jacob and Prof. Doheon Lee) for the dedication and hard work they have put in over previous years that enabled us to run 11 very successful ICARIS conferences, bringing together researchers from biology, engineering and computer science.
