Medical telereporting and second-opinion over the Internet are nowadays cost-effective and widely adopted practices.
Physicians and general practitioners make daily use of tele-consultation over the WEB, VOIP, chat and video-conferencing. Social networking favors the constitution of large communities of members sharing similar medical interest, so that TeleMedicine is rapidly turning into what we call "NetMedicine", which simply denotes every Health-related activity hich is carried on through the Internet.
Since its inception and along all its history, Artificial Intelligence served the Medicine, under both its souls, the logicistic and the connessionistic ones. But in the current digitally networked and hyperlinked e-Health scenario, Artificial Intelligence has to play also new important roles.
Today we urge intelligent software to semantically interpret and filter diagnostic data, automatically classify and convey medical information, virtualize nurses and hospital lanes to reduce the costs of healthcare, etc.
This one-day workshop aims at bringing together scholars and practitioners active in Artificial Intelligence driven Health Informatics, to present and discuss their research, share their knowledge and experiences, define key research challenges and explore possible international collaborations to advance the intelligent practice of Medicine over the Internet.

Participants are invited to submit papers on all research and application aspects of Artificial Intelligence driven e-Health, including, but not limited to:

* Virtual Caregivers and nurses
- AI-based collaborative care and communication
- intelligent devices and instruments
- AI-based "Ambient Assisted Living"
- wearable and/or unobtrusive smart systems
- patient care, monitoring and early diagnosis
* Artificial Intelligence and Health Informatics
- medical ontology modeling
- fusion and interpretation of multimodal medical information
- reasoning with the uncertainty of medical data/knowledge
- semantically diagnosis modelling
- mining on medical data/knowledge
- AI-based clinical decision making
- automated reasoning and metareasoning in medicine
* Intelligent Medical Information Systems
- Multi-Agent architectures for "NetMedicine" and "Health Information Systems"
- interoperability of medical records
- patient centric (and evidence-based) decision support systems
- intelligent games for disease diagnosis
- intelligent visualization of medical data (augmented reality)
* Philosophical, Ethical, Juridical and Social issues
- social networks for improved medical education
- managing the patient personalized medical data
- medical web pages characterization
- monitoring patient and/or elderly people personal life
- health informatics in the developing world
- extending quality healthcare to rural communities
- AI in medical education

Submissions reporting on case studies in a medical context are strongly invited, and should describe details, weaknesses and strength in sufficient depth.

Prof. John S. Baras, from the University of Maryland (Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Institute for Systems Research) will introduce some challenging ideas about what is really needed, from an AI point of view, to monitor people's health and reduce the capital spending in Health Care Systems.

Participants are invited to submit:
(1) a short position or demonstration paper of 5 pages in length or
(2) a full-length technical paper of up to 10 pages in length, both addressing the topics of the workshop.
Both must be edited in LaTeX using the LNCS format:

and be submitted electronically as PDF files via EasyChair at:

Submissions reporting on case studies in a medical context are strongly invited, and should describe details, weaknesses and strength in sufficient depth.
Papers will be reviewed by at least three PC members, and accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.
Further information about paper submission will be made available at NetMed 2013 web page.

A selection of the accepted papers will be considered to be extended for publication in an international journal.
