= Background =
In the latest years we have been witnessing the ubiquitous application of
Artificial Intelligence in real-world domains; in particular, AI-based
solutions significantly changed the game in the field of medicine and
healthcare in several respects (research, management, clinical practice).
Indeed, applications of AI in the healthcare domain became a major research
topics, that attracts cross-disciplinary research groups.
Medicine and health care require highly complex decision making to ensure
that the trajectory a patient with a disease needs to take for diagnosis,
treatment, recovery, and finally outcome is optimal in some sense. As a
consequence, researchers have to draw methods from the entire field of AI.
On the other hand, healthcare and medicine are built upon a rich and
evolving body of knowledge, e.g., concerning the pathophysiology of
diseases, molecular, genetic, cytological, and histological
characterization of stages of a disease, described by temporal and spatial
patterns. Such knowledge can also act as background knowledge to guide
machine learning. In order to move towards effective and long-lasting
applications of AI in healthcare, it is crucial to elucidate the
relationship between what can be expected from AI methods when applied to
healthcare problems and the role knowledge of healthcare and clinical
medicine can play in developing AI solutions to health-care and clinical

= The Workshop =
The HX at AIxIA workshop aims at gathering researchers from academia, industry
and medical centers for presenting and discussing the latest research
results and ongoing works related to the application and impact of AI in
the healthcare domain, to the larger extent, thus aiming at covering a wide
spectrum of topics, including theoretical and practical aspects,
methodologies, technologies, and systems.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
 - Machine learning methods, data mining and statistical methods for
clinical decision support
 - Probabilistic graphical models for clinical decision-making and causal
 - Learning, representation and reasoning with time
 - Knowledge representation, reasoning and formal argumentation in

 - Probabilistic graphical models for clinical decision-making and causal
 - Learning, representation and reasoning with time
 - Knowledge representation, reasoning and formal argumentation in
 - Methods for diagnosis, treatment selection, treatment planning, and
 - Monitoring patients in healthcare
 - Ontologies and medical vocabularies
 - Personalized medicine
 - Computer-interpretable clinical guidelines
 - Support for natural language generation/understanding in connection
electronic patient records
 - Tools for supporting authoring, execution and maintenance of clinical
protocols and guidelines
 - Tools for building and deployment of clinical decision-support systems

= Contributions =
The workshop will feature presentations of refereed contributions; two
types of submissions are invited:
 - full papers, possibly already submitted to other conferences or journals
 - short papers, which are particularly suitable for presenting work in
progress, software prototypes, extended abstracts of doctoral theses, or
general overviews of research projects.

In particular, we also invite submissions of systems or prototype software
descriptions; systems of both research and industrial character are
welcome. Submissions must include a brief description, prepared according
to the guidelines given for short papers, and a specification of the
required hardware and software equipment.
Besides demos, some contributions might be invited to be presented as

= Submission Instructions =
Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts in PDF via the EasyChair
system at the link:

Articles must not exceed 15 pages for full papers and 8 pages for short
papers, respectively.
Manuscripts should be formatted using the Springer LNCS style.
To ease the reviewing process, the authors of regular papers may add an
appendix (although reviewers are not required to consider it in their

All contributions must be written in English.

For each accepted contribution, at least one of the authors is required to
attend the conference and present the paper. The event is organized by

= Proceedings and Journal Special Issue =
All accepted original contributions (both full and short) will be published
on CEUR-WS.org. Non-original communications will be given visibility on the
workshop web site, including a link to the original publication, if already

The organizers are considering the possibility of having workshop
post-proceedings appearing in a special issue of an international journal,
provided that a sufficient amount of quality papers is collected. In such a
case, authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended and
revised versions of their papers. Extensions of accepted non-original
contributions, if not published in a journal yet, might be included in the
issue. A second review formal process will be run in order to meet the
expected quality of a journal.

All authors of accepted papers are invited to participate in the Kick-Off
meeting of the AI and Healthcare Working Group of AIxIA (
https://aixia.it/en/gruppi/hc/), that will be held on November 30rd, 2022
right after the workshop.
