Symposium:Hacking the immune system: exploiting computational immunology to understand the immune system.

Hacking the immune system: exploiting computational immunology to understand the immune system There have been many developments in the area of computational modelling over the past few years and the use of modelling to solve immunological and biological questions. This one-day symposium will bring together international scientists in the field of tumor immunology, computational modelling and artificial immune systems to discuss the most recent developments in this interdisciplinary field. The use of computational immunology to create articificial immune systems will also be discussed.
