14th Conference on Artificial Intelligence in MedicineAIME 2013

May 29 - June 1, 2013, Murcia, Spain


The European Society for Artificial Intelligence in MEdicine (AIME) was established in 1986 with two main goals:

  • to foster fundamental and applied research in the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to medical care and medical research, and
  • to provide a forum for reporting significant results achieved at biennial conferences.

A major activity of this society has been a series of international conferences, from Marseille, France, in 1987 to Bled, Slovenia, in 2011, held biennially over the last 24 years. Next year, the AIME 2013 conference will be held in Murcia, Spain.

The AIME 2013 conference will be a unique opportunity to present and improve the international state of the art of AI in Medicine from perspectives of theory, methodology, and application. For this purpose, AIME 2013 will include invited lectures, full and short papers, tutorials, workshops, and a doctoral consortium. Specific attention will be given in the main conference to the theme "AI in Telemedicine and eHealth".

Program at a Glance

May 29, 2013: Doctoral symposium and tutorials
May 30-31, 2013: Main conference programme
June 1, 2013: Workshops


We invite you to submit original contributions regarding the development of theory, methods, systems, and applications of AI in BioMedicine, including the application of AI approaches in biomedical informatics, healthcare organization and molecular medicine. A specific focus for the AIME 2013 conference is the role of AI in telemedicine and eHealth systems.

Contributions to theory and methods should present or analyse novel AI theories or methodologies for solving problems in the biomedical field. It is equally possible to develop new theories or methods, as well as to extend 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, assumptions and limitations should be discussed, 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 analyse 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:

  • Clinical Decision Support Systems
  • Machine Learning, Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
  • Biomedical Ontologies and Terminologies
  • Bayesian Networks and Reasoning under Uncertainty
  • Temporal and Spatial Representation and Reasoning
  • Computerized Clinical Practice Guidelines and Protocols
  • Healthcare Process and Workflow Management
  • Biomedical Knowledge Acquisition and Knowledge Management
  • AI methods in Telemedicine and eHealth
  • Case-based Reasoning in Biomedicine
  • Document Classification and Information Retrieval
  • Biomedical Image and Signal Processing
  • Visual Analytics in Biomedicine
  • Natural Language Processing
  • AI solutions for Ambient Assisted Living
