Call for Papers


AITH 2018 Symposium on Artificial Intelligence in Technologies for Health (AITH 2018)

Held in conjunction with the 2018 Convention on Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour (AISB 2018), Liverpool, UK, 4th-6th April 2018


Motivation and Goals


This full day symposium showcases innovative Artificial Intelligence research that focuses on promoting access, improving efficiency and enhancing quality within healthcare. There is a clear potential for Artificial Intelligence to improve healthcare services. This symposium aims to connect the current research in AI with the needs of patients, healthcare workers and manufacturers to promote research that is both practical and innovative.

It builds on six previous workshops presented at UMAP 2015, UM 2005, UM 2007, 21st IEEE CBMS (2008), AIME 2009 and EHealth 2010.
