AIPR continues the half-century of success and tradition in pioneering new topics in applied image and visual understanding. The current worldwide pandemic focuses our collective attention on artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine and biomedicine to improve healthcare. Healthcare systems around the world are being challenged and experiencing a large influx of patients requiring intensive monitoring. Researchers are working on near-term and long-term projects to bring relief to clinical providers with enhanced automation capability to assist in patient monitoring, rapid diagnosis, and drug discovery. Large medical databases are offering new opportunities to accelerate the adoption of AI and improve medical outcomes. The 2021 IEEE AIPR Workshop will explore artificial intelligence in medicine, healthcare, and neuroscience. It will feature three special sessions on Machine Learning for Cryo-Electron Microscopy, Signal Analysis and Modeling in Neuroscience, and Digital Pathology Image Analytics. In addition to papers on regular AIPR topics in applied imagery, the Workshop Committee invites papers that address all aspects of medical and biomedical AI, development of novel tools, methodologies, algorithms, theory, and mechanisms for biomedicine, healthcare, and neuroscience.
Theme topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- AI-based medical imaging for COVID-19 detection, outcome prediction, or monitoring
- Deep learning and AI for medicine, computer aided diagnosis, biology, drug discovery
- Medical image classification, segmentation, and registration
- Connectomics, brain imaging, fMRI, neural circuitry, neuropathologies
- Multiscale biological and biomedical signal and image analysis
- Deep neural networks for pathology, radiology, and microscopy
- Robotics technologies for medical and biomedical applications
- Biomedical analysis for clinical imaging and informatics
- Data mining and image retrieval for biomedical imagery
