International Workshop on Artificial Immune Systems
- Systems & Synthetic Immunology, Computational Immunology &
Immune-Inspired Engineering -
July 17-18, 2015 - Taormina, Italy


**** SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 18th February 2015

**** PROCEEDINGS in IEEE Press, as post-proceedings

**** Special Issue in BMC BIOINFORMATICS (TBC)

** General Information **

The main aim of AIS 2015 is to foster the essential relations between
immunologists and modelers that work into the research areas of
systems immunology, synthetic immunology, computational immunology,
cellular immunology, immune-inspired computation and immune-inspired
engineering. In addition to peer-reviewed papers, the workshop will
present a range of plenary lectures in order to inspire and facilitate
all AIS researchers in their current and future work.

The workshop is under the patronage of IEEE CIS Task Force on
Artificial Immune Systems ( and it is
co-sponsored by IEEE Computational Intelligence Society

*** You are invited to submit papers to this exciting event! ***

** Important Dates **

- Abstract submission: 18th February 2015

** Paper Submission **

Authors are encouraged to submit novel contributions in one of the
main topics of AIS 2015, and explain how their work sheds light on the
fundamental properties of natural and artificial immune system, and
makes progress on the important open questions of systems & synthetic
immunology, computational immunology, and immune-inspired engineering.

AIS 2015 includes three different types of submission:
1) *regular paper*: 8-pages maximum length, including figures, table &
references. It should report on new and unpublished work;
2) *abstract*: max 2 pages length;
3) *Oral/Poster presentations*: no pages restriction. It should
discuss works in progress; new research ideas; works previously
published elsewhere (it is essential that a reference to the previous
article is clearly cited); and all that may be relevant and fruitful
for soliciting discussions at the workshop.

All the submitted papers must be formatted using IEEE style
( Note that the format is exactly the same for all

All submissions will be subject to peer review by the program
committee, and all accepted submissions are allocated either an oral
presentation slot or a poster slot with no distinction being made
between the submission options.

** Proceedings - IEEE press **

All accepted papers for the first two options will be published in a
volume by IEEE Press, whilst all accepted papers relative to the last
option will be published in an electronic book, and it will put online
in the workshop website.

The authors of the best papers will have the opportunity to publish a
revised and expanded version of their conference paper in BMC
Bioinformatics (TBC).

** Location **

The conference will be held in Taormina
