IEEE WCCI 2022 is the world's largest technical event on computational intelligence, featuring the three flagship conferences of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) under one roof: the 2022 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2022), the 2022 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2022), and the 2022 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC 2022).

Special Session on "Artificial Immune Systems" at the 2022 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC 2022)


The biological immune system is a powerful defense system that protects an organism itself from diseases and danger. The biological immune system is a kind of complex, adaptive, dynamic and distributive systems with abilities of learning, memory, self-organization, feature extraction and pattern recognition.

The Artificial Immune System, also known as Immune Computation, is a relatively new branch in the computational intelligence community, which is inspired by the structure, functions, models and information processing mechanism of biological immune system. The Artificial Immune System is a fast developing research area. Nowadays, the scope of this research area ranges from modeling to simulation of the biological immune system, to the development of novel engineering solutions to complex problems.

This special session aims to focus on the state-of-the-art research on immune-inspired algorithms and the new conceptual models for understanding the dynamics that underlie the immune system.

This special session is supported by the IEEE CIS ECTC Task Force on Artificial Immune Systems.
