Submission

Papers and posters should be submitted to the AIME 2024 Easychair Website.

The conference features regular papers in two categories (please note if you submit a paper as a student):

  1. Full research papers (up to 10 pages, including references), appendix up to 10 pages.
  2. Short and Demo papers (4 to 5 pages, including references) describing either:
    • a short research project,
    • a demonstration of implemented systems, or
    • late-breaking results (work-in-progress).
  1. Posters (1 to 2 pages consisting of a structured extended abstract) describing either:
    • work-in-progress research, with preliminary results;
    • an AI-based clinical study or protocol thereof (e.g. validation of an AI tool in a specific clinical setting, or an implementation of an AI tool in a clinical institution), or
    • system prototypes and early-stage methodological work (e.g. a new algorithm with pseudo-code but only prototypical implementation and no validation study).
    • the extended abstract comprises background, methods, results, discussion and references.
    • Arial or Times New Roman size 11 are recommended fonts for submissions.

Accepted extended abstracts will be presented at the poster sessions and will be published on the AIME website.

Papers should be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS format and one of the topics must be selected during submission (Full research paperShort paperDemo paper). Authors can include an appendix that does not count towards the page limit, however there is no guarantee that reviewers will read it. Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are also available in Overleaf. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings which will be published as part of Springer’s Lecture Notes in AI series. Proceedings from previous AIME conferences can be viewed on SpringerLink. In addition, the corresponding author of each accepted paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

In addition, the authors of the best submissions will be invited to expand and refine their papers for possible publication in the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine journal (Elsevier).

Demos of applications are welcome, authors must submit a demo paper (see above). At the demo track there will bee opportunities for presenting software to individuals and small groups of participants.

The proceedings will be published by Springer as part of Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI), a subseries of LNCS focusing on Artificial Intelligence. This requires at least one full registration to be paid for each published paper.

Proceedings from prior AIME conferences can be viewed on SpringerLink

Awards Program

  • The Mario Stefanelli award is given to the best student paper, according to the conference Scientific Program Committee, based on the quality of both the paper and oral presentation at the conference. The award is provided by the AIME society.

  • The Marco Ramoni award is given to the best full paper, according to the conference Scientific Program Committee, based on the scientific quality of the paper. The award is provided by the AIME society.

  • The award is given for the best poster. The award is provided by the local organizers (Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Utah).

Student Travel Grants

We will offer 6 travel grants to students, who are authors of accepted papers (full or short), and will present their work during the AIME 2024 conference. Each grant will cover travel costs of up to 500,00 USD. The travel grants are provided by the AIME society.

Preference will be given to students not participating in the Doctoral Consortium (the later will be provided participation grants) and students from under-represented groups and minorities. 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 30th, decisions will be announced in early May, and grants will be awarded during the conference.

Applicants should send 1) the title of their accepted paper, 2) a formal proof of their student status, and 3) an electronic copy or scan of tickets via e-mail to Mahony Reategui (mahony.reategui@utah.edu) with the subject “Student Travel Grant”
