Wide-ranging expertise on Artificial Intelligence in Medicine will be on display at an international conference being hosted this weekend by the University of Aberdeen.
Delegates from all over Europe and further afield will hear key presentations from leading experts in the field.
Computer scientists with an interest in medical computing science will attend the 10th Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME 05) which is being held at the University’s King’s College Centre between July 23-27.
Organiser of AIME 05, Professor Jim Hunter, Department of Computing Science, said: “The University of Aberdeen is very proud to be hosting AIME 05, the 10th conference in the series, which will be a unique opportunity to present and improve the international state of the art of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine from both a research and an applications perspective.
“AIME 05 will include invited lectures, contributed full and short papers, system demonstrations, tutorials, and workshops.”
The European Society for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME) was established in 1986 to foster fundamental and applied research in the application of Artificial Intelligence techniques to medical care and medical research, and to provide a forum for reporting significant results achieved at biennial conferences.
Additionally, AIME assists medical industrialists to identify new artificial intelligence techniques with high potential for integration into new products.
The European Society for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine has held the series of international conferences biennially over the last 18 years, and this year it will be held in Aberdeen.
Two invited speakers, Frank van Harmelen, from the Netherlands, and Paul Lukowicz, from Austria, will give detailed presentations on ontology mapping and human computer interaction in context-aware wearable systems.
Delegates will attend workshops, tutorials and presentations covering everything from the evaluation of prognostic models, to applied data mining in clinical research, from evolutionary computation approaches to mining biomedical data, biomedical ontology engineering. They will be able to hear from leading researchers in the artificial intelligence in medicine field.
The First Doctoral Consortium for the AIME series of conferences will take place tomorrow, Saturday, July 23 in conjunction with AIME 05. It is hoped that the Doctoral Consortium will become a permanent feature of the AIME conferences, providing an opportunity for research students to present their on-going work in an informal and supportive atmosphere.
The Doctoral Consortium of AIME 05 intends to bring together PhD students from the research area of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine to discuss the specific problems they are researching, to present their preliminary results and to get advice from experienced researchers about various aspects of getting trained in research and preparing a Doctoral Thesis.
The Doctoral Consortium will host the presentations from 6-8 PhD students and will be conducted by a number of prominent academic researchers with substantial experience in the field and will actively participate and contribute to the discussions.
