    Call for Papers

    1st International Conference on ARtificial Immune Systems (ICARIS-2002)

    University of Kent at Canterbury. September 9th-11th, 2002.

    http://www.aber.ac.uk/icaris-2002
    Aims and Scope

    The field of Artificial Immune Systems is one of the more recent
    biologically inspired approaches to emerge from computer science. The
    natural immune system is an adaptive learning system that employs many
    parallel and complementary mechanisms for defense against foreign pathogens.
    It is a distributed system, capable of learning to identify previously
    unseen invaders and remembering what it has learnt. Numerous immune
    algorithms now exist, based on processes identified within human immune
    systems. These computational techniques have many potential applications,
    such as in pattern recognition, fault detection, computer security, and
    optimization.

    The aims of this conference are to strengthen this emerging research area by
    exploring different immunological mechanisms and their relation to
    information processing and problem solving. The conference will provide a
    great opportunity for presenting and disseminating the latest work in the
    field of Artificial Immune Systems, and is the first ever conference
    dedicated entirely to the field of AIS.

    All papers will be published in conference proceedings. The best papers will
    be also be published in a special issue of the journal Genetic Programming
    and Evolvable Machines in early 2003.

    The conference will have two streams:
        Technical Stream: For work undertaken, with clear results obtained
        Conceptual Stream: For discussion papers without results, work in
    progress papers etc.

    Important Dates

    15th June Submission deadline
    15th July Review results
    1st Aug Revised papers due
    9th-11th Sept Conference

    Submission Instructions

    All papers will undergo a blind review process. Authors are requested to
    submit a postscript file to the email address below no later than the
    submission deadline. Submitted papers are to be in single-spaced, 10-point
    type on 8-1/2" x11" OR A4 paper with 1" margins at top and 3/4" margin at
    left, right and bottom, and are a maximum of ten (10) pages.
    The authors name and affiliation should not paper on the paper, but be
    included on a separate page.
    Authors must make it clear in their submission email which stream the paper
    is to be considered for.
    Word templates and LaTeX files for final camera-ready copies will be made
    available via the conference website.
    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.
