Aim & Scope

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is gradually changing the routine of medical practice and the level of acceptance by the medical personnel is constantly increasing. Recent progress in digital medical data acquisition through advanced biosignal and medical imaging devices, machine learning and high-performance cloud computing infrastructures, push health related AI applications into areas that were previously thought to be only the province of human experts. Such applications employ a variety of methodologies including fuzzy logic, evolutionary calculations, neural networks, or deep learning. Advanced image processing, and artificial intelligence methods can support medical diagnostics, follow-up monitoring, preventive medicine, assessment of therapy and many other domains. These areas have been in recent years the subject of many research papers and research grants. Consequently, this workshop is devoted to the subject of artificial intelligence, in its broadest sense, in biomedical engineering and health informatics.

Topics

The workshop aims to support research and innovation on Artificial Intelligence in Biomedical Engineering and Informatics and especially in:
• Wearable Systems
• Medical and Sensor Data Processing
• Machine Learning in eHealth
• Medical Image Analysis and Radiomics
• Robotics in Biomedical Engineering
• Quantified Self Technologies and Applications
• Intelligent Data Processing and Predictive Algorithms in eHealth
• Smart Homes and Assistive Environments
• Data Mining of Health Data on the Cloud
• Security, Safety and Privacy in intelligent eHealth applications

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on the above and related topics are solicited. Authors should submit a paper with up to 10 pages (in English) in single-column Springer format following the Springer IFIP AICT format guidelines.

Submissions must be in electronic form as .pdf files and should be uploaded with EasyAcademia. Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 2 independent members of the program committee.

At least one author of each accepted paper must be registered and present the paper at the workshop. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published in the SPRINGER IFIP AICT (Advances in Information and Communication Technology) series. Extended versions of selected workshop papers may be considered for publication in international journals.

Find Registration info here.

The AIAI conference has its own SPRINGER PROCEEDINGS SERIES. Please download the recent instructions for authors as they were released by Springer here: IFIP AICT Sample file format.

Submitted papers will be refereed by at least three reviewers for quality, correctness, originality, and relevance. Notification and reviews will be communicated via email. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and included in the proceedings, which will be published by SPRINGER and they will be available on site. It is important though to follow the instructions in this page to ensure that your paper will be included in the SPRINGER  IFIP AICT proceedings.

ATTENTION

A paper may not be included in the proceedings if the requirements are not met, or if the registration fee is not received by the deadline of the submission of the camera-ready. Based on the reviewers’ comments and on the presentation, and after a second peer review process, a number of selected papers will be published in a special issue of a scientific Journal with high Impact Factor.
