Artificial Immune Systems: 9th International Conference, ICARIS 2010, Edinburgh, UK, July 26-29, 2010, Proceedings
  Artificial immune systems (AIS) is a diverse and maturing area of research that bridges the disciplines of immunology and computation. The original research impetus in AIS had a clear focus on applying immunological principles to computational problems in practical domains such as computer security, data mining and optimization. As the field has matured, it has diversified such that we now see a growing interest in formalizing the theoretical properties of earlier aproaches, elaborating underlying relationships between applied computational models and those from theoretical immunology, as well a return to the roots of the domain in which the methods of computer science are being applied to immunological modelling problems. Following the trends in the field, the ICARIS conference intends to provide a forum for all these perspectives. The 9th InternationalConference on AIS (ICARIS 2010)built on the success of previous years, providing a convenient vantage point for broader reflection as it returned to Edinburgh, the venue of the Second ICARIS in 2003. This time, the conference was hosted by Edinburgh Napier University at its Craiglockhart Campus, recently reopened after extensive refurbishment which has resulted in a stunning building and state-of-the-art facilities. The extent to which the field has matured over the preceding years is clear; a substantial track of theoretical research now underpins the discipline. The applied stream has expanded in its outlook, and has examples of AIS algorithms being applied across a wide spectrum of practical problems, ranging from sensor networks to semi-conductor design.
