The Immune System as a Metaphor for Topology Driven Patterns Formation in Complex Systems
Artificial Immune Systems (AIS)  include algorithms and systems that use the human immune system as inspiration. The human immune system is a robust, decentralised, error tolerant and adaptive system. Such properties are highly desirable for the development of novel computer systems, but also - we would like to say - for characterizing complex systems and for contributing to the growth of complexity science.
