Update: Extended Deadline until 06th of April 2023

The MOLIT Institute and its scientific partners are excited to announce the Artificial Intelligence for Clinical Decision Support (short: “AI4CDS”) call. The goal of this call is to foster young scientists by creating an environment in which new approaches to data-driven medicine for clinical decision support (CDS) can be established. Participating teams can connect to peers on a national- and international level and it is planned to present the results at the most important german scientific congress for medical informatics, biometry and epidemiology the GMDS 2023 in Heilbronn.

Students are invited to submit their project proposals on the topics of artificial intelligence (AI) and clinical decision support. The subject area/context of the projects is in principle not limited, but they should be related to the topics of AI and/or CDS.

In collaboration with our scientific cooperation partners, additional data sources can be considered for your project. Please indicate in your project proposal if additional data is necessary for your project-related use case.

For more information, please see the documents and FAQ section below:

We ask for submissions in English only.
