This workshop is the first research meeting organised by the Spanish Society of Artificial Intelligence in Biomedicine (IABiomed), which is a scientific society founded in 2023 as a continuation of the interests and objectives set out in the in the Spanish Network of Artificial Intelligence in Biomedicine (IABiomed-net). Two previous editions of the IABiomed workshop (formerly, workshop of Spanish AI Research Groups in Biomedicine) were organized within the 2018 and 2020/21 CAEPIA conferences. The workshop proposed here aims to offer an opportunity for researchers and research groups with a track record in biomedical applications that use AI to share the experiences and results of their recent projects, as well as the future challenges that arise. The practical purpose is to learn about the concerns and interests of the participants through direct contact, and to identify synergies and complementarities that help strengthen the role of Spanish research in this field.




Topics of interest for IABiomed include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • AI applications to drug design, discovery, and repositioning.
  • AI in medical and healthcare education
  • AI in medical regulation
  • AI-based clinical decision making
  • Biosignal Interpretation
  • Clinical Guidelines and Protocols
  • Clinical Process Mining
  • Computer Based Medical Education and Simulation
  • Ethics of the application of AI in medicine
  • Healthcare Monitoring
  • Intelligent mHealth
  • Intelligent Pharmacovigilance support
  • Large Language Models in Biomedicine
  • Medical Imaging and Vision
  • Natural Language Processing in Biomedicine
  • Predictive Analysis in Medicine
  • Semantic Interoperability
  • Terminologies and Ontologies in Biomedicine
  • Therapy Planning


Two types of contributions are expected: papers for conferences (general papers) and key works.

  • Papers for CAEPIA: In this case the papers will be published in the conference proceedings. These works will have an extension of up to 6 pages. The work presented will describe an original research, with solid, well-founded and demonstrable results on any of the topics of the IABiomed workshop. The papers must be formatted in accordance with the IEEE guidelines (available in Word and LaTeX2e format).
  • Key works: Recent works published in renowned journals and conferences, between 2022 and 2024. The objective is to disseminate them among a wide audience of the IABiomed community, giving community members the opportunity to know works with which they are not familiar, and to encourage interdisciplinarity. The works will have an extension of up to two pages. The papers must be formatted in accordance with the IEEE guidelines (available in Word and LaTeX2e format).

It should be noted that this workshop will only accept these two types of contributions, but not papers for Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) or doctoral projects.
