Workshop Aim: Recent technological advances in computer science and biomedicine facilitated the development of complex biomedical systems including sophisticated medical imaging, signal processing systems and computer based decision support tools, assisting diagnosis for better delivery of health care services. Meanwhile, applications of Machine Learning, Neural Computing, Expert Systems, Fuzzy Logic and Evolutionary Computing in biomedicine are continuously emerging. Therefore AI tools and techniques are a vital part of modern computer based systems that handle medical data. The aim of this workshop is to serve as a forum for the presentation of new and ongoing work and the exchange of ideas between researchers interested in the application of AI in any aspect of biomedicine and electronic healthcare.

Workshop Topics: The workshop topics include but are not limited to:

  • Clinical decision support systems
  • Medical imaging
  • Medical signal processing
  • Medical knowledge engineering
  • Knowledge-based and agent-based systems
  • Medical text analysis
  • Computational intelligence in bio- and clinical medicine
  • Data mining on medical data and records
  • Intelligent medical information systems
  • Clinical expert systems
  • Modelling and simulation of medical processes
  • Drug discovery
  • Intelligent analysis of genomic and proteomic data
  • Personalised medicine
  • Intelligent devices and instruments
  • Automated reasoning and metareasoning in medicine
  • AI in medical education

Authors are invited to submit original, English-language research contributions or experience reports. Papers should be no longer than 10 pages formatted according to the well-known LNCS Springer style. Papers should be submitted either in a doc or in a pdf form to h.papadopoulos@frederick.ac.cy

Submitted papers will be refereed for quality, correctness, originality, and relevance. Notification and reviews will be communicated via email. Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and published in the Proceedings of the main event (by Springer). They will also be considered for potential publication in the Special Issues of the Conference.

Registration fees and benefits for the workshops' participants are exactly identical with the ones of the main AIAI 2012 event.
