Scope and Topics:
Since the birth of artificial intelligence, the theory and technology are increasingly mature. The application field is also expanding. According to some laws and mechanisms in the process of natural evolution, and researchers deal with problems though imitation. That is where theoretical computational intelligence comes in. Theoretical computational intelligence is the successor of artificial intelligence. In addition, it turns into one of the most active researches in the field of intelligent information science. Theoretical computational intelligence has been successfully used to solve the critical problems in pattern recognition, data mining, image processing and so on. Nowadays, there is some representative algorithms in the field such as fuzzy systems, neural networks, evolutionary computation, group intelligence and immune system, etc. Recently, theoretical computational intelligence is at rapid development, in the case of both methodological development and practical applications. Computational intelligence plays pivotal roles in finding the stable convergence of the optimal solution or approximate optimal solution through multiple iterative calculation. Especially in practical applications, it has been widely implemented by researchers. Computational intelligence is an essential combination of learning, adaptation and evolution used to intelligent and innovative applications. Similar to other scientific domains, there is no doubt that computational intelligence has a great research space both in theory and in applications. This workshop consists of invited talks and contributed talks, and welcomes submission of both papers and short abstracts, where all submissions will be subject to peer review. The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following: Applications of theoretical Computational Intelligence in bioinformatics Applications of theoretical Computational Intelligence in traffics Applications of theoretical Computational Intelligence in pharmaceutics Applications of theoretical Computational Intelligence in pharmacology Applications of theoretical Computational Intelligence in Computational chemistry Applications of theoretical Computational Intelligence in Microbiomics Applications of theoretical Computational Intelligence in image processing Applications of theoretical Computational Intelligence in natural language processing Applications of theoretical Computational Intelligence in financial Other related topics.

Scope and Topics:
Disease diagnosis is a complex evidence-based process that requires various data to complement each other. As the most intuitive way of displaying symptoms, medical imaging plays an important role in intelligent diagnosis and precision analysis. Especially in recent years, the advancement of artificial intelligence technology has promoted breakthroughs in various fields of precision medicine. However, it is still difficult to analyze medical imaging data with high efficiency, high accuracy, and high consistency, due to four limitations: symptom complexity, data variation, algorithm efficiency, and the subjective differences between different clinicians. Hence, intelligence analysis technology still has great potential to simplify the diagnostic process, improve the analysis accuracy and efficiency, and better assist clinicians in the diagnosis of lesions. For this Research Topic, we would like to bring together the latest progress of medical intelligent analysis technologies, such as medical intelligent diagnosis and prognosis analysis, complex fusion processing of multi- modality medical data, medical image classification, segmentation, detection, registration, reconstruction, intelligent analysis and so on. These key biomedicine intelligent analysis technologies are the basis of precision medicine as well as the hot research areas. We believe that these critical medical intelligent analysis technologies will significantly improve the abilities to achieve intelligent diagnosis and precision medicine. We welcome submissions of Original Research and Review articles focusing on the intelligent analysis of medical imaging data for precision medicine. Topics of interest include but are not limited to any of the sub-topics listed below: Multi-modality fusion for diagnosis, image analysis, and image-guided interventions Medical image classification Medical image biomarkers Medical image reconstruction Medical image registration Medical image segmentation Medical image retrieval Medical image data mining Computer-aided detection/diagnosis Outcome/disease prediction/survival prediction Quantification based on intelligent analysis of medical imaging data Interpretability and Complexity Analysis of Machine Learning.

In recent years, deep learning is a rapidly advancing field in terms of both methodological development and practical applications. It allows computational models of multiple processing layers to learn and represent data with multiple levels of abstraction. It can implicitly capture intricate structures of large-scale data and is ideally suited to some of the hardware architectures currently available. The focus of this workshop is to carry out the research article, which could be more focused on the latest medical image analysis techniques based on Deep learning.
