6th International KES Conference


The KES International Conference on Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare (KES-InMed-18) will gather a multi-disciplinary group consisting of researchers and engineers, managers, students and practitioners from the medical arena, to discuss the ways that innovation, knowledge exchange and enterprise can be applied to issues relating to medicine, surgery, healthcare and the issues of an ageing population.

A central theme of the conference will be Smart Medical and Healthcare Systems which will cover the ways in which modern intelligent systems contribute to the solution of problems faced by healthcare and medical practitioners today, addressing the application of these systems through all of the strands of the event.

Call for Papers

High quality papers are requested within the scope of the conference. Full papers will be peer reviewed, and if accepted and presented, they will appear the the proceedings, published by a major scientific publisher.

Substantially extended version of selected papers will be considered for publication in a InMed special issue of international journals such as International Journal of Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Engineering Systems.

Alternatively, authors may choose to submit a short paper, which will be presented but will not appear in the proceedings.

Call Proposals for Invited Sessions and Workshops

We invite senior researchers or managers who have a special interest in a specific conference topic to submit proposals for a special session of six papers, gathering articles from colleagues and managing the review process. For more details see the invited sessions page.


The conference proceedings will be published by Springer as book chapters in a volume of the KES Smart Innovation Systems and Technologies series, submitted for indexing in Scopus and Thomson-Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) and the Web of Science.
