Important: Due to the on-going pandemic, the organizing committee has decided that AIME 2020 will be held virtually. We are receiving advice from other conferences that are going virtual, and working out the best ways to offer talks, workshops, and tutorials without losing the social aspect that has always been a central part of our meetings and our community. We have some exciting initiatives planned to encourage attendance of the virtual conference and to promote interaction during the many planned sessions. We will post details about these initiatives here and on our Twitter feed. Rest assured that all accepted papers to AIME 2020 will be published by Springer in our proceedings.

The conference dates have been shifted back by one day to accommodate the change to a virtual conference, and the schedule has been altered slightly. The tutorials will take place on Tuesday August 25th, the Doctoral Consortium and a special coronavirus-focused workshop on Wednesday August 26th, and the main conference including invited speakers and coronavirus-focused panel on Thursday August 27th and Friday August 28th. These changes are reflected below and in the appropriate sections of the conference website. Per usual, at least one of the authors from each accepted paper and poster must register and virtually attend the conference to present their work. Thank you for your understanding in these difficult times and we look forward to engaging with you August 25-28 2020!



Welcome to the 2020 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME 2020) website.

The AIME 2020 conference will be hosted virtually by the University of Minnesota on August 25-28, 2020.  As previous AIME conferences (from Pavia in 1985 to Poznan in 2019) it will be a unique opportunity to present significant theoretical, methodological and applied results related to the application of artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine. AIME 2020 will include two invited speakers, long and short presentations, two poster sessions, a coronavirus-themed panelthree tutorials, one workshop, and a doctoral consortium.
