IEEE Symposium on Immune Computation (IEEE IComputation)

The 2023 IEEE Symposium on Immune Computation (IEEE IComputation 2023) is a part of the IEEE Symposium Series of Computational Intelligence (IEEE SSCI 2023), Mexico City, Mexico, December 5th – 8th, 2023.

Immune Computation is a fast developing research area in the computational intelligence community, inspired by the information processing mechanism of biological immune system. Many of these algorithms are built on solid theoretical foundations, through understanding mathematical models and computational simulation of aspects of the immune system. The scope of this research area ranges from modeling to simulation of the immune system, to the development of novel engineering solutions to complex problems, and bridges several disciplines to provide new insights into immunology, computer science, mathematics and engineering. Especially, the immune system is a complex and intelligent system for protecting the body. Thus the immune system is an outstanding paradigm of the secure intelligent system, while secure intelligence is an important topic in the immune computation field.

The aims of this symposium are: (1) to present the state-of-the-art research on immune computation as well as secure intelligence; (2) to provide a forum to disseminate their recent advances and views on future perspectives in the field; (3) to offer new techniques and models for understanding secure intelligent systems, and (4) to provide a unique event where computer scientists, engineers, immunologists, biologists, physicists, etc., may compare to each other their expertises in an interdisciplinary vision.
