Computational Physiology – SECOND CALL FOR ABSTRACTS (Supplemental Website: http://sites.google.com/site/aaaicomputationalphysiology/home)
Automated human health-state monitoring aims to identify when an individual moves from a healthy to a compromised state. For example, changes in diet or physical activity can lead to life-threatening hypo or hyperglycemia in diabetics. Similarly, elderly individuals managing multiple chronic conditions may experience rapid changes in physical and cognitive health state that must be caught quickly for treatments to be most effective. Even in healthy individuals, heavy exertion in extreme climates can quickly lead to life threatening situations.
The emergence of inexpensive and unobtrusive health sensors promises to shift the health care industry‘s focus from episodic care in acute settings to early detection and longitudinal care for chronic conditions in natural living environments. While these sensing systems are able to provide a wealth of physiological information, the non-invasive measurements are often quite different from the high-quality but limited quantities of data used by physicians. As the availability of longitudinal data increases, we have an unprecedented opportunity to discover new early predictors of clinically significant events.
This symposium will bring together researchers from the fields of artificial intelligence, machine learning, engineering, physiology, and medicine for a set of talks and discussions aimed at bridging these inter-disciplinary perspectives. Researchers in all fields related to computational physiology are invited to submit extended abstracts (2 pages) or short papers (4-6 pages) describing:
Reports on experimental results, descriptions of implemented systems, and position papers are all welcome; papers will be chosen for either oral or poster presentations.
Extended Abstracts and Short Papers should be in AAAI format [http://www.aaai.org/Publications/Author/author.php]. Please e-mail submissions to email@example.com.
