      - Stephanie Forrest, University of New Mexico, USA

      * Tutorial Speaker:
      - Christian Blum, Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, Spain

      * Three special issues on the following journals:

      *******************************************************************************

      Important Dates:
      Paper submission: 15th April 2012 (extended)
      Author notification: 1st June 2012
      Paper final version: 15th June 2012


      General Information:
      ICARIS 2012 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 2012 will present a range of plenary lectures and tutorials to
      inspire and facilitate both the computer scientists and immunologists in
      their work.

      ICARIS 2012 is divided into two main tracks:
      * 28 and 29 August 2012: Computational Immunology, Immunoinformatics &
      Systems Immunology

      http://www.artificial-immune-systems.org/icaris/2012/callForPapers.php
      (for Oral Presentations & Posters submission)

      * 30 and 31 August 2012: Immunological Computation, Immune-inspired
      Engineering, Immune-inspired Heuristics

      https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icaris2012
      (for Full papers submission)

      http://www.artificial-immune-systems.org/icaris/2012/callForPapers.php
      (for Oral Presentations & Posters submission)



      - TRACK on Computational Immunology, Immunoinformatics & Systems Immunology

      ***********************************************************************************
      Special Issue in Immunomics Research Journal and Natural Computing

      Plenary Speaker:
      - Piero Mastroeni, University of Cambridge, UK
      ***********************************************************************************


      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.

      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.

      In this track, authors are requested to submit an abstract following the
      instructions on ICARIS 2012 website:
      http://www.artificial-immune-systems.org/icaris/2012/callForPapers.php

      The abstract submissions must be done no later than the submission
      deadline: 15 April 2012 (extended). 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 and
      Natural Computing.


      - Track on Immunological Computation, Immune-inspired Engineering &
      Immune-inspired Heuristics

      ***********************************************************************************
      Special Issue in Evolutionary Intelligence and Natural Computing

      Plenary Speaker:
      - Stephanie Forrest, University of New Mexico, USA

      Tutorial Speaker:
      - Christian Blum, Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, Spain
      ***********************************************************************************


      This track is for papers describing applications to computational and
      engineering problems, and theoretical aspects (e.g. mathematical
      modelling of algorithms, convergence analysis, empirical investigation
      into algorithm performance and complexity analysis) of AIS. For the
      first class, 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. In order to appeal to the widest audience,
      theoretical papers must ensure that mathematical arguments and
      backgrounds are clearly presented, and the paper should also discuss the
      practical implications of any theoretical results.

      In this track authors may submit their manuscripts in two different
      ways: abstract paper, or regular paper (as usual tradition).

      * Abstract paper
      Authors must follow the instructions described on ICARIS 2012 website:
      http://www.artificial-immune-systems.org/icaris/2012/callForPapers.php


      * Regular paper
      All papers will undergo a double blind review process, and they should
      be no longer than fourteen (14) pages. Is recommended that authors name
      and affiliation should not appear on the paper. Authors are requested to
      submit a PDF file at the link
      https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icaris2012 following the
      formatting instructions at the Springer-Verlag LNCS site, no later than
      the submission deadline: 15 April 2012 (extended).

      All accepted papers, as for the previous editions, will be published in
      Springer's series Lecture Notes in Computer Science. The authors of best
      (regular) papers on this track will be invited to extend their work for
      publication in Evolutionary Intelligence and Natural Computing journals.

      NOTE:
      During the submission authors must make clear which stream 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 Taormina in August 2012.
      C. Coello Coello, J. Greensmith, N. Krasnogor, P. Lio', G. Nicosia, M.
      Pavone.

      Publicity Chairs: German Terrazas, Renato Umeton, Nareli Cruz Cortes.
