      General Information:
      ICARIS 2011 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 2011 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 2011 will again adopt an (optional) extended
      abstract (2-6 pages) submission for the Immunoinformatics &
      Computational Immunology 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.

      Immunoinformatics & Computational Immunology Stream:
      The goal of the Immunoinformatics & Computational Immunology stream is
      to attract researchers from computer science, information science,
      engineering, biomathematics, biomedicine, bioinformatics, systems
      biology, and immunology to share and exchange their knowledge of the
      state-of-the-art research issues, methodologies, ideas, and
      challenges. Topics of interest include:
      * 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.

      Paper Submissions:
      All papers will undergo a double blind review process. Authors are
      requested to submit a PDF file no later than the submission deadline
      28th of Feb.2011. The authors name and affiliation should not appear
      on the paper. Please follow the formatting instructions at the
      Springer-Verlag LNCS site. Papers should be a maximum of fourteen (14)
      pages. To encourage dialog with the theoretical and clinical
      immunology communities, ICARIS 2011 will again adopt an (optional)
      extended abstract (2-6 pages) submission for the Immunoinformatics &
      Computational Immunology 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. Authors
      must make it clear in their submission which stream the paper is to be
      considered for. Papers should be submitted via the submissions section
      of the website. You will be provided with a reference number that will
      be used throughout the submission process.

      All papers will undergo a double blind review process. Authors are
      requested to submit a PDF.
      The proceedings will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer
      Science, Springer, submission is now open for ICARIS-2011:
