Welcome to the IEEE International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Health

in conjunction with the 19th

19th IEEE International Conference on e-Science (eScience)

9 -13 October, 2023 - Limassol, Cyprus



Worldwide, the number of investments in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for healthcare and wellbeing (eHealth) is rapidly increasing. This means that eHealth is of considerable interest worldwide also because it has the potential to increase the quality of services and access to health information for users and reduce the workload and associated costs for health service providers in the longer term. In this context, an increasing interest is growing around eHealth and ICT technologies, such as cloud computing, edge and fog computing, Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, and mostly artificial intelligence, that could revolutionize healthcare bringing innovative network applications and services.

eHealth is then one of the major research topics that have been attracting cross-disciplinary research groups. The deployment of new emerging technologies for Health, especially based on Artificial Intelligence, is attracting the interest of many researchers.

The workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Health (AI4Health 2023) aims at bringing together researchers from academia, industry, government, and medical centers to present state-of-the-art and discuss the latest advances in the emerging area of the use of artificial intelligence and soft computing techniques, be they black boxes or explanation-based, to signals, images, and data in the fields of medicine, healthcare, and wellbeing. AI4Health is expected to cover the whole range of theoretical and practical aspects, technologies, and systems related to the application of artificial intelligence and soft computing methodologies to issues such as machine learning, deep learning, knowledge discovery, decision support, classification, regression, forecasting, optimization, and feature selection in the healthcare and wellbeing domain.

AI4Health will be of interest to several kinds of professional figures, for example, researchers from academia, industry, government, and medical experts, to know more about the recent trends focusing on eHealth and the next-generation technologies for healthcare. In general, the workshop will be of interest to anyone who would like to know more on how to adopt recent cloud, edge, and fog computing, IoT, artificial intelligence, and blockchain to develop cutting-edge eHealth services.

St. Raphael Resort

AI4Health will be held at the St. Raphael Resort

St. Raphael Resort, located in Limassol, Cyprus, is positioned on one of the most renowned beaches in Limassol, only a short coastal drive from the lively centre of town, approximately 10 minutes away. The Larnaca International Airport is 35 minutes away, and Paphos International Airport is 55 minutes away. There are shops, restaurants and bars within walking distance and a bus stop exactly outside the hotel.

This carefully chosen, tranquil location with the calm sea at your doorstep and the town only a few moments away has convenient access to the island’s motorway. Any other coastal town, mountain village or tourist attraction is hardly more than an hour’s drive away.

You are responsible for making your own travel arrangements.


Limassol, a city counting centuries of history, is located between two of the most renowned ancient kingdoms of the island, Amathous at the east and Kourion at the west. “Lemessos” as it is called by locals, is the second largest urban area in Cyprus (after the capital, Nicosia) and its municipality is the most populous in the country with 235,000 inhabitants (2011 Census).

Limassol is one of the fastest growing modern metropolises in Europe. The city's infrastructure is constantly upgraded from all aspects (way of living, public construction projects, education, etc) with the most distinct project of this sort being the Limassol Marina - an exclusive waterfront development combining elegant residences and a full service marina, with its own shopping and dining area. Also, the revamped coastline now covers a 15 kilometres distance, lined with hotels and beach bars and cafes, interspersed with eucalyptus groves and linked by a promenade popular with walkers and joggers.
