      **** SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 22nd April 2013


      **** KEYNOTE SPEAKERS:
      - Pietro Lio?, University of Cambridge, UK
      - Natalio Krasnogor, University of Nottingham, UK

      General Information:

      ICARIS 2013 aims to build on the success of previous years to provide
      a forum for AIS researchers in both academia and industry to present
      and
      discuss their latest advances. In addition to peer-reviewed papers,
      ICARIS 2013 will present a range of plenary lectures and tutorials to
      inspire and facilitate both the computer scientists and immunologists
      in their future and current work.


      Important Dates:

      Paper submission: 22nd April 2013
      Author notification: 28th May 2013
      Camera Ready submission: 18th June 2013



      Invited Keynote Speakers:

      We have a variety of prestigious speakers for this year?s conference,
      which we hope will be of interest to participants of both tracks. We
      are pleased to announce the following plenary speakers to date:

      * Pietro Lio?, University of Cambridge, UK
      * Natalio Krasnogor, University of Nottingham, UK
      * Benedict Seddon, National Institute for Medical Research, UK
      * Alan Winfield, University of the West of England, UK




      Conference Location:

      This conference is hosted by the University of Nottingham, and will be
      held at the East Midlands Conference Centre, situated on the
      University Park Campus. New for 2013, onsite hotel accommodation will
      be available at a competitive delegate rate. The University of
      Nottingham is easily accessible by public transport, 15 minutes from
      Nottingham City Centre. Nottingham is located in central England, 25
      minutes taxi from Nottingham East Midlands Airport, and 1 hr 45 mins
      from London St Pancras on the Midland Mainline. For further details
      please refer to the conference website.




      Submission Guidelines:

      As the previous editions, ICARIS 2013 is divided into two main tracks:

      * Computational Immunology & Immunoinformatics
      * Immune-inspired Computing



      - Track on Computational Immunology & Immunoinformatics

      This track aims is to attract researchers from computer science,
      information science, engineering, biomathematics, biomedicine,
      bioinformatics, systems biology, and immunology to share and exchange
      their knowledge of state-of-the-art research issues, methodologies,
      ideas, and challenges.

      In this track, authors are requested to submit an abstract up to 500
      words in length, one figure and references.Topics of interest include
      but are not limited to:

      * Immune modelling;
      * Structural Immunoinformatics;
      * Epitope analysis and prediction;
      * Analysis and prediction of MHC-peptide binding;
      * Databases and ontologies for Immunoinformatics;
      * Analysis and prediction of minor histocompatibility antigens;
      * Predictive models on organ transplantation;
      * Immunogenomics;
      * Vaccine design;
      * Multi-agent based models of immunity;
      * Gene networks and systems biology in immunity;
      * Allergenicity prediction;
      * Theoretical Immunology
      * Quantitative Immunology


      The deadline for abstract submissions is on or before the 22nd April
      2013. All accepted abstracts will be published in a book of abstracts.
      Full versions of the best works on this track will be published in the
      Immunomics Research Journal.

      During submission please indicate you are submitting for the
      Computational Immunology & Immunoinformatics track. All abstracts will
      undergo a quick review process for relevance to the conference and
      technical accuracy. Presentations will be approx. 15 minutes for each
      paper in this track, though we reserve the right to allocate a poster
      presentation slot to abstracts if necessary.

      Submission: 500 word (plus one figure) abstract
      Deadline: 22nd April
      System: Easychair https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icaris2013


      - Track on Immune-inspired Computing

      This track is for research into the development and application of
      artificial immune systems. This includes:

      * Research describing applications of AIS to computational and
      engineering problems
      * Theoretical analysis of immune inspired algorithms (e.g. mathematical
      modelling of algorithms, convergence analysis, empirical investigation
      into algorithm performance and complexity analysis)
      * Hybrid algorithms
      * Novel immune algorithm development.

      For research pertianing to engineering and computational applications
      we expect the problem domain to be clearly explained in your
      submission. This should include why it is challenging and why AIS are
      a suitable methodology to use. For empirical research, experiments
      should be carefully explained, with the expectation that appropriate
      statistical analysis of results will be used to support conclusions.
      Where possible, the approach taken should be compared with alternative
      strategies. In order to appeal to the widest audience, theoretical
      papers must ensure that mathematical arguments and backgrounds are
      clearly presented. Where possible the submission should also discuss
      the practical implications of any theoretical results.


      In this track authors may submit their manuscripts as EITHER an
      abstract paper or regular paper, both of which may qualify for an oral
      or poster presentations. Abstract papers will be given approx. 15
      minutes to present, full papers approx. 20 minutes (tbd).


      * Regular Paper Submission: 22nd April 2013

      All papers will undergo a double blind peer-review process.

      Authors are requested to submit a PDF file in the first instance to:
      https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icaris2013 following the
      formatting instructions at the Springer-Verlag LNCS site, no later
      than the submission deadline: 22 April 2013.

      Papers should be a maximum of fourteen (14) pages. As this is a double
      blind process it is recommended that authors name and affiliation
      should not appear on the paper upon submission.

      All accepted papers, as for the previous editions, will be published
      in Springer's series Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
      If you wish to present a poster and do not wish to be
      considered for oral presentation, then please indicate this when you
      submit the abstract. We reserve the right to allocate poster
      presentation slots to submissions that have requested oral
      presentation. The authors of the best regular papers will be invited
      to extend their work for publication in the journal Natural Computing
      (TBC).

      * Abstract Paper: 22nd April 2013

      All abstracts will undergo a quick review process for relevance to the
      conference and technical accuracy. Abstracts should be no longer than
      500 words, include no more than one figure and include appropriate
      references. If you wish to present a poster and do not wish to be
      considered for oral presentation, then please indicate this when you
      submit the abstract. We reserve the right to allocate poster
      presentation slots to submissions that have requested oral presentation.


      *NOTE*:
      During the submission authors must make clear which track the paper
      should to be considered for. You will be provided a reference number
      that will be used throughout the submission process.


      We look forward to welcoming you to Nottingham in August 2013.
      Uwe Aickelin, Julie Greensmith, Mario Pavone and Jon Timmis.
