AIAB 2013

3rd Workshop on Artificial Intelligence Applications in Biomedicine


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.

Topics of interest

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the use of techniques like:

  • Clinical decision support systems
  • Medical imaging
  • Medical signal processing
