The subject areas of the workshop include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Clinical decision support systems
* Medical imaging
* Medical signal processing
* Medical knowledge engineering
* Knowledge-based and agent-based systems
* Medical text analysis
* Computational intelligence in bio- and clinical medicine
* Data mining on medical data and records
* Intelligent medical information systems
* Clinical expert systems
* Modelling and simulation of medical processes
* Drug discovery
* Intelligent analysis of genomic and proteomic data
* Personalised medicine
* Intelligent devices and instruments
* Automated reasoning and metareasoning in medicine
* AI in medical education

Authors are invited to submit original, English-language research contributions or experience reports. Papers should be no longer than 10 pages formatted according to the well-known LNCS Springer style. Papers should be submitted either in a doc or in a pdf form to: [email protected]

Submitted papers will be refereed for quality, correctness, originality, and relevance. Notification and reviews will be communicated via email.

Ημερίδα Πληροφορικής – Εισαγωγή στο Προγραμματισμό με Linux


Σαν Όμιλος Πληροφορικής διοργανώσαμε μια σειρά συναντήσεων πάνω σε θέματα που ενδιαφέρουν του φοιτητές πληροφορικής  και φοιτητές που τώρα ξεκινούν να προγραμματίζουν.
Τις ημερομηνίες 2 Μαρτίου, 16 Μαρτίου, 23 Μαρτίου και 6 Απριλίου στην αίθουσα του Ομίλου στο κτίριο Κοινωνικών Δραστηριοτήτων θα βρίσκονται εκεί για κάποιες ώρες άτομα του ομίλου και φοιτητές του τμήματος Πληροφορικής για να λύσουν απορίες, να ενημερώσουν τους φοιτητές για διάφορα θέματα που τους ενδιαφέρουν και να παρουσιάσουν κάποια θέματα για τα οποία έχουν προετοιμαστεί.
Αντί για επίσημες παρουσιάσεις θα έχουμε χαλαρές συζητήσεις όπως και στη βραδιά των Ομίλων. Η διάρκεια κάθε συνάντησης θα είναι 6 – 7 ώρες (10π.μ – 17μ.μ), εκτός από την αυριανή που λόγο άλλων υποχρεώσεων θα είναι από τις 10π.μ μέχρι τις 1:30μμ, όπου θα υπάρχει τουλάχιστον ένα άτομο διαθέσιμο για συζήτηση. Ο κόσμος θα μπορεί να πηγαινοέρχεται όποτε θέλει αφού δεν θα έχουμε αυστηρό πρόγραμμα παρουσιάσεων. Στην αίθουσα θα υπάρχει Internet.
Οι εθελοντές που θα βοηθήσουν στις ημερίδες συμπεριλαμβανομένου του εαυτού μου είναι οι ακόλουθοι:

  • Αντρέας Χατζηδημητρίου (Μεταπτυχιακό 2ο)
  • Κατερίνα Τορτούτη (Μεταπτυχιακό 2ο)
  • Λευτέρης Ελευθεριάδης (Ειδικός Επιστήμονας)
  • Μαρία Ευθυμίου (Μεταπτυχιακό 2ο)
  • Φίλιππος Χατζημιχαήλ (Μεταπτυχιακό 1ο)
  • Χάρης Μαραγκός (Προπτυχιακό 4ο)

Όλοι οι κάτοχοι πτυχίου είναι απόφοιτοι του τμήματος Πληροφορικής.

Τα θέματα που έχουμε κάνει προετοιμασία είναι τα ακόλουθα:

  • Proper Java Programming & Design Patterns
  • Συμβουλές για τις ροές μαθημάτων / μαθήματα
  • Visualizing Linux σε Windows με το VirtualBox
  • Λειτουργικά Ubuntu Linux / Linux Mint
  • IDE CodeBlocks / Eclipse / NetBeans / Visual Studio
  • Compilers GNU GCC / GNU GPP / GNU JavaC
  • Τμήμα UCy CS
  • Οργανισμοί ACM / CCS / IEEE

Παράλληλα θα προσφέρουμε mini-workshops για την χρήση των πιο πάνω προγραμμάτων και θα δώσουμε έτοιμο image Linux με τα βασικά προγράμματα για προγραμματισμό εγκατεστημένα.

Αν θέλετε περισσότερες πληροφορίες για τα θέματα ή να εισηγηθείτε κάποιο, παρακαλώ επικοινωνήστε μαζί μου.

Με εκτίμηση,
