The AIME 2022 conference invites all interested researchers to submit original contributions regarding the development of theory, methods, systems, and applications of Artificial Intelligence in biomedicine, including the application of AI approaches in biomedical informatics, healthcare organisation and molecular medicine. 

Scope

Contributions to theory and methods should present or analyze novel AI theories or methodologies for solving problems in the biomedical field. They may propose new theories and methods or extensions of existing ones. In both cases, the work should demonstrate its utility for solving biomedical problems and highlight its contribution to the underlying theoretical basis. In addition, it should discuss assumptions, limitations and novelty with respect to the state of the art.

Contributions addressing systems and applications should describe the development, implementation or evaluation of innovative, AI-based tools and systems in the biomedical application domain. These papers should both link the work to underlying theory, and either analyze the potential benefits to solve biomedical problems or present empirical evidence of benefits in clinical practice.

The scope of the conference includes the following areas:

  • Machine learning and big data analytics,
  • Knowledge discovery and data mining,
  • Biomedical ontologies and terminologies,
  • Biomedical knowledge acquisition and representation,
  • Knowledge-based reasoning in biomedicine,
  • Natural language processing,
  • Biomedical image processing,
  • Document classification and information retrieval,
  • Bayesian networks, fuzzy logic and reasoning under uncertainty,
  • Temporal and spatial representation and reasoning,
  • Healthcare processes and workflow management,
  • Computerized clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) and protocols,
  • Signal processing,
  • Visual analytics in biomedicine,
  • Clinical decision support systems (CDSSs),
  • Patient engagement support (personal healthcare record),
  • Explainable AI (XAI) for health,
  • Precision medicine and health,
  • AI solutions for ambient assisted living, telemedicine, and e-health.

Clinical Relevance

Since the healthcare domain is motivated by value creation for the patient, provider, and institution, this year a special focus will be given to demonstrating clinical relevance. Please write a subsection in the evaluation section that describes the value created by your submitted work.

Submission

Papers should be submitted to the AIME 2022 Easychair Website. Authors are asked first to submit an abstract (maximum 250 words) - the full paper may be uploaded up to two weeks later (please see Important Dates below).

The conference features regular papers in two categories (please note if you submit a paper as a student):

  1. Full research papers (up to 10 pages, including references)
  2. Short papers (up to 5 pages, including references) and Demo papers (1 page) describing either
  • a short research project,
  • a demonstration of implemented systems, or
  • late-breaking results (work-in-progress).

Papers should be formatted according to Springer's LNCS format and one of the topics must be selected during submission (Full research paper, Short paper, Demo paper). Authors can include an appendix that does not count towards the page limit, however there is no guarantee that reviewers will read it. Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are also available in Overleaf. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings which will be published as part of Springer's Lecture Notes in AI series. Proceedings from previous AIME conference held in Europe can be viewed on SpringerLink. In addition, the corresponding author of each accepted paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

In addition, the authors of the best submissions will be invited to expand and refine their papers for possible publication in the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine journal (Elsevier).

Demos of applications are welcome at the demo track: there will be opportunities for presenting software to individuals and small groups of participants.
