Dear Biomch-L readers,

Back at my terminal for just a few days, I thought that the appended item
might be useful for those of us who try to combine AI and Movement Analysis
-- as, e.g., some of the partners in the CAMARC project, and some colleagues
at Ohio State University.

With kind regards -- Herman J. Woltring

Third European Conference
on
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
IN
MEDICINE

University of Limburg
Maastricht
The Netherlands
24th-27th June 1991

AIME
In 1986 the European Society for Artificial Intelligence in
Medicine (AIME) was established to foster fundamental and
applied research in Artificial Intelligence for medical care
and medical research. AIME also assists industry in
identifying high quality applications which exploit these
techniques.
A major feature of AIME activity is a series of international
conferences held every two years. The third conference in
this series is AIME-91 to be held in Maastricht from 24th-
27th June 1991.

Aims and Scope of the Conference
The scope of AIME 91 ranges from theoretical research to
practical applications of Artificial Intelligence in
Medicine. Main themes will include:
- knowledge representation and modelling
- knowledge acquisition and explanation
- temporal and spatial reasoning
- uncertainty management in KBS
- expert databases
- KBS evaluation (Knowledge Based Systems -- HJW)
- clinical applications and integration
- technology assessment of KBS

Contributions that describe practical applications should
either include results from evaluation studies or be
accompanied by a demonstration that will be scheduled in a
separate session.
The scientific program will also include lectures by invited
speakers and a structured poster session.

On the 24th of June, there will be a number of preconference
tutorials on a variety of topics.

Delegates will be drawn from medicine, computer science and a
wide range of related disciplines.


Call for Papers
Papers are invited on any aspect of the theory, design or
application of medical AI systems. Submissions will be
refereed by an international panel on the basis of draft,
full length papers which must be in English, length up to
5000 words, doubly spaced. Four copies are required. The
author's name(s) and affiliations should appear only on a
separate sheet, which will be removed before the paper is
sent for refereeing. All papers accepted will appear in the
conference proceedings.

Those who want to give a demonstration should clearly
identify the equipment needed (Type of computer system,
memory and disk requirements, operating system etc.).
