Call For Papers

Call for Papers / Participation
The volume of Electronic Health Record (EHR) data has grown dramatically in the past decade due to the wide adoption of EHR systems in healthcare systems. The availability of large amounts of multimodal clinical data has fostered the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in clinical care including in clinical decision support, patient management, as well as in clinical and translational research, such as digital phenotyping, cohort discovery, and in-silico trials. Despite the promising potential of AI in clinical applications, its regular use comes with bias and ethical challenges. As highlighted by recent studies, disparities in health care, although may start at the collection of clinical data, could be amplified with the development of AI technologies.

Topics of interest
Any original research related to ethics and bias of AI in clinical applications. The relevant AI techniques include, but are not limited to, natural language processing, medical imaging, deep learning, predictive modeling, human computer interface, Internet of Things, and more. Clinical applications include, but are not limited to, clinical decision support, clinical research, translational research, consumer applications, robotics.

Other relevant topics include: AI for health equity, AI for health disparity, transparency/interpretability/explainability of AI techniques in clinical applications, data bias, algorithmic bias, human bias of AI techniques, fairness metrics, fairness evaluation, fairness tools, reasoning, practical and technical solutions to mitigate the bias, and more.

Finally, we will consider limited types of position papers on AI ethics/bias. This would include position papers from individuals/groups that are part of a community that has historically been adversely impacted by artificial intelligence, bias, or health disparities. We will also consider position papers from institutions playing key roles in mitigating the impact of bias in clinical applications.

Position Papers: 4 pages with up to 2 extra pages for references/appendices.
Will present an arguable opinion about AI ethics/bias and its impact.
Tutorial/Hackathon Session
The purpose of the tutorial/hackathon session is to raise awareness of the problem of bias in clinical data and AI algorithms with the ultimate goal of creating innovative approaches that can help reduce or eliminate bias in clinical data and AI. Participants may be students, researchers, and data scientists who are interested in applying AI to clinical applications. Complete this form to register the Tutorial/Hackathon Session.

Track I: Clinical Natural Language Processing
Data: de-identified clinical notes from MIMIC III
Algorithm: Rule-based NLP algorithm
Task: Understand how stigmatizing language in clinical notes varies by patients' medical condition and race/ethnicity
Pre-requisite: Complete required training and sign the data use agreement for the MIMIC III data access at
Track II: Medical Imaging
Data: Knee X-ray images from NIH OAI publicly available dataset
Algorithm: Convolutional Neural Networks
Task: Understand how knee joint segmentation and measurement varies by different racial or gender groups, and imbalanced training data
Submission and Review
Anyone who is interested in ethics and bias of AI in clinical applications is invited to submit their work to the EBAIC 2023.

Authors can log in at and submit their papers under the "ebaic" track. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by domain experts.
