Midnight sun conference for patient-centered artificial intelligence 2021

We have now opened the registration for the Midnight Sun Conference for patient-centered artificial intelligence 2021.

The conference brings together researchers, clinicians, and other interested parties to share experiences, discuss and learn about how artificial intelligence is used and can be implemented in the health service. We have an exciting program with international, national and local speakers who will talk about various aspects of the use of artificial intelligence in the health service. In addition, the The Norwegian Centre for Clinical Artificial Intelligence (SPKI) and Kunstig intelligens i norsk helsetjeneste (KIN) will be opened during the conference.

The conference will be held in Tromsø on 15 and 16 June 2021 and has co-organizers from the University Hospital of Northern Norway, UiT Norway's Arctic University, Health North and the National Center for e-Health Research. We are planning for a hybrid conference with both physical participation (100 seats so far, but this can change depending on the pandemic) or digital participation (free).

We encourage you to register early, especially if you wish to participate physically.
