Call for Papers


      7th International Conference on Artificial Immune Systems




                10-13 August 2008, Phuket, Thailand




                          Aims and Scope



Artificial Immune Systems are one of the most exciting recent new areas

research, focussing on biologically-inspired algorithms based on

immune systems and on the use of computers to model and analyse

immune systems.


 The seventh International Conference on AIS continues the

tradition of providing a forum for the world's leading researchers in

area to present their latest results. ICARIS also encourages and

newer researchers to the field, whether from academia or industry.

grants will be available to contribute towards travel costs. If you

research into artificial immune systems or modelling of immune systems,

need to come to Thailand and join us!


World-leading researchers in the field will be present plenary lectures

a number of general and specialist tutorials will be run just before the

main conference.


All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, published

Springer- Verlag as part of their Lecture Notes series. Details of

Verlag can be found at




and formatting details can be found at





The conference will have four streams:


1. Computational immunology (for modelling and biology-specific work)


   Stream leader: Emma Hart <E.Hart from napier.ac.uk>


2. Applied AIS (for immune-inspired computer science systems, practical

   Success Story" applications in industry, commerce, arts, and


   Stream leaders: 

     Henry Lau < hyklau from hkucc.hku.hk>

     Vincenzo Cutello <cutello from dmi.unict.it>


3. Theoretical AIS (for theoretical analyses of computer science,

   information theory and/or biology)


   Stream leader: Andy Hone <A.N.W.Hone from kent.ac.uk>


4. Position papers (providing a novel argument - philosophical or

   methodological - relating to AIS and/or immunobiology).


   Stream leader: Jon Timmis <jtimmis from cs.york.ac.uk>



Please contact individual stream leaders for more information. Note that

position papers will have shorter time to present, and longer for

at the end.
