Aim & Scope

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 10th 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.

The proceedings will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Springer.
