Paper Submission

Authors are encouraged to submit novel contributions in one of the topics of the Congress, 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 & clinic immmunology, and artificial life.

Types of Submission

There are three options for submission: long paper; short paper; and abstract for oral/poster presentation.

  1. Long paper has an 8-pages maximum length (in IEEE format), including figures, table & references, and should report on new and unpublished work;
  2. Short paper is an extended abstract limited to a 2-pages length (in IEEE format);
  3. Abstract for oral/poster presentation is no pages restriction (any format), and 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.

The IEEE paper templates can be found at the following link:
http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html

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 in IEEE Press

All long, and short accepted manuscripts will be published in a volume by IEEE Press as post-proceedings.

All accepted abstracts will be published in an Electronic Book, which will put online in the workshop website.

Special Issues

The best accepted papers (regardless of their kind) will have the opportunity to publish a revised and expanded version of their conference paper in Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence, Elsevier, and BMC Immunology.
