Everyday medicine is facing new challenges: new diseases, cost reductions, new therapeutics, rapid and accurate decisions, new techniques and technologies. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is playing an important role in the decision making process, in the way the data of the patients are collected, treated, processed, anticipating and avoiding critical situations, as well to test and simulate new treatments and devices. The big question to be answered is: How Artificial Intelligence can help to overcome these challenges and improve the efficiency of medicine?
Data Science, Sensing, Pervasiveness, Ubiquity and Intelligent Agents in Medicine, can contribute with new artifacts and new knowledge for health professionals. AI aims to improve the usability of programs for assisting physicians in figuring out what is wrong with the patients and provide new solutions to help making better decisions. AI systems are intended to support healthcare practitioners in the normal course of their duties, assisting with tasks that rely on the manipulation of data and knowledge. In particular, these systems have for example the capacity to learn, leading to the discovery of new phenomena and the creation of medical knowledge improving human health and longevity.
This track promotes a forum to discuss and present emergent topics, new projects and ideas about how AI can contribute to the field of Medicine and, improve patient conditions. By bringing together researchers from two distinct areas is expected to produce new scientific and technical knowledge in a particular area as is medicine. Special attention will be given to the social impact/gain of the AI contributions in medicine.

All papers should be submitted in PDF format through the EPIA’2022 submission Website. Submissions must be original and can be of two types: regular (full-length) papers should not exceed twelve (12) pages in length, whereas short papers should not exceed six (6) pages. Each submission will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee. The reviewing process is double-blind. The best-accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by Springer in the LNAI series (previous EPIA proceedings were indexed by the Thomson ISI Web of Knowledge, Scopus, DBLP and ACM digital library). The remaining accepted papers will be published in the local proceedings with ISBN.
*Authors of the best papers presented at the AIM track of EPIA will be invited to submit extended versions of their manuscripts for a Special Issue in Journal of Medical Systems (Springer) or in Journal of AI in Medicine (Elsevier)
