	    5th Conference on Artificial Intelligence in
			  Medicine Europe

		    University of Pavia, Italy
		       25th - 28th June 1995

			- Call for papers -


The European Society for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine in (AIME) was  
established in 1986 after a highly successful workshop held in Pavia the  
year before. The aims of AIME are the following:

    1. to foster fundamental and applied research in the application
       of Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to medical care and
       medical research, and

    2. to provide a forum for reporting significant results achieved
       at biennial conferences.

AIME also assists industry to identify high quality medical products which  
exploit these techniques.


We seek to publish original contributions to the development of theory,  
techniques, and applications of AI in Medicine. Contributions to theory  
may include a presentation or an analysis of the properties of novel AI  
methodologies potentially useful to solve relevant medical problems.  
Papers on techniques should describe the development or the extension of  
AI methods and their implementation. They should also discuss the  
assumptions and limitations which characterize the proposed methods.  
Application papers should describe the implementation of AI systems to  
solve significant medical problems, and should present sufficient  
information to allow evaluation of the practical benefits of using the  

AIME 95 will provide:

    . invited papers
    . contributed papers
    . contributed posters
    . system demonstrations
    . round table discussions
    . tutorials to introduce newcomers and discuss advanced topics

In the following methodological areas:

    . knowledge representation formalisms
    . uncertainty in medical reasoning
    . temporal reasoning
    . natural language understanding
    . knowledge acquisition and validation
    . knowledge based image and signal interpretation
    . integration of KBS and patient medical record
    . other areas relevant to AI in Medicine


Full papers should be submitted on or before 1st December 1994. Papers  
should not exceed 5000 (posters 500) words. Authors are requested to  
classify their submitted paper using the categories given in the Scope.  
Papers must be original and must not have been published before. All  
papers will be carefully reviewed by at least two independent and highly  
respected referees.

All accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings (as in  
previous editions of the Conference, the Proceedings will be published by  
a major Publisher in this area).

We also invite submission of tutorial proposals on topics relevant to this  
Conference. A one-page abstract of the tutorial, as well as further  
relevant data concerning the topic and the presenter (curriculum of the  
lecturer, previous presentations of the tutorial, etc) should be sent to  
the Tutorials Chairman.
