Welcome to the AIME 2019 website.

The AIME 2019 conference will be held in Poznan, Poland on June 26-29, 2019.  As previous AIME conferences (from Pavia in 1985 to Vienna in 2017) it will be a unique opportunity to present significant theoretical, methodological and applied results related to the application of artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine.

AIME 2019 will include two invited lectures, full and short papers, tutorials, workshops, and a doctoral consortium.

Student Travel Grants

We will offer 6-8 travel grants to students who are authors of accepted papers (full or short) and will present their work during the AIME 2019 conference. Each grant will cover travel costs of up to € 450 (if these costs are lower than € 450, then the actual amount will be covered). Preference will be given to students not participating in the Doctoral Consortium (the later will be provided participation grants). Moreover, we will take into account the quality of submitted papers as indicated by the reviews. The submission of applications will be possible until April 30, decisions will be announced in early May, and grants will be awarded during the conference. Applicants should send the title of their accepted paper, a formal proof of their student status and an electronic copy or scan of tickets via e-mail to Szymon Wilk.
