CFP : Special track on "AI in Healthcare" (AIH 20201) at IEA AIE 2021. Deadline: 15th December
Date: October 10, 2020 05:36PM

Special Session on AI in Healthcare (AIH2021)

34th International Conference on Industrial, Engineering & Other Applications of Applied Intelligent Systems (IEA/AIE 2021)


Healthcare has always been an important area, for both the governments and the population, where the technology has been playing important roles in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Recent reports indicate that the healthcare sector will experience an important growth in the use of new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI). AI is a disruptive technology with the potential to revolutionize health and social care applications. While AI has the potential of delivering significant health benefits, it is apparent that there are still significant practical challenges, as well as ethical and regulatory concerns associated with the use of AI in healthcare.

We intend to offer a venue for exchanging ideas among participants from different disciplines, Artificial Intelligence, Medicine, and Public Health. This special session will provide a forum for international researchers and practitioners to share and discuss their original and interesting work on addressing new challenges and research issues in the area.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to the use of AI, machine learning and deep learning to:

Ethics and regulation

Accessible diagnostic and prognostic systems
Tracking infections and health monitoring
Health equity
Fairness and bias in AI/ML systems
Generalisation across populations or systems
Democratising AI health research
Improving patient participation in health
Data collections, benchmarking, and performance evaluation
Non-traditional delivery of healthcare
Prediction, diagnosis, and treatment

Medical imaging: segmentation, classification, etc.
Ultrasound and audio data analysis
Deep learning for multi-omics (genomics, proteomics, etc.)
Predictive analysis using medical data (patients flow, readmissions, etc.)
AI for performance improvement in healthcare
Predicting and forecasting epidemic outbreaks
Predicting health risks from patient data
Vaccines and drugs development
AI for personal health management
AI for medical resource management
AI-based systems for training health professionals
Computer-aided automated diagnosis
Important Dates
