Call for Papers: AI-assisted Solutions for COVID-19 and Biomedical Applications in Smart-Cities (AISCOVID-19 2020)

Overview:

COVID-19, known as the Corona Virus Disease 19, is a disease which created a significant impact by being a cause of death to the majority of the deceased population of the world in 2019-2020. The primary source for the transmission of the disease, detection and treatment methods are still unknown. Lots of the details about this virus is still missing. How it spreads, prevention measures and vaccinations issues need to be further investigated. In this field, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and computer-assisted paradigms can play a key role in achieving many effective and efficient solutions. Such intelligent techniques can achieve very effective diagnosis for the COVID-19 and alike diseases in the biomedical field by even being better than physicians. It can examine extended counts of the possibilities and exchange the found results in timely manners. Current smart cities infrastructure includes a number of smart devices having the sensing and data routing capabilities to communicate with each other using various protocols, allowing the disease updates to be accessed any-time from anywhere. They have the potential to provide innovative services which could not be possible without the progress made in the AI field.

This venue aims to solicit original research articles, which contributes to the current state of the art by reporting results for the used AI techniques in the problem scope of computer networks-assisted COVID-19 and alike diagnosis. It will shed the light on potential mobile Internet, big data, artificial intelligence, cloud computing and other modern information technology that can build the required online and cost-efficient medical service platforms.
