AIME Rising Star award
Since 2021 we have an annual "Rising Star" award to members of the AIME community. These awards are aimed at younger colleagues running their labs with recent breakthrough papers in the area. They are given by the AIME Board, presented at the conference and followed with an invited talk. The Chair of the AIME Board manages the list of candidates and the selection process. The travel costs for the Rising Stars are covered by the meeting, and the PC Chair and the Director of the AIME Board will encourage the awardees' engagement in the next AIME conference (area chairs, submissions from their students). The criteria for the award are as follows:
- They must be within 5 years of PhD completion.
- They must have had at least one full-length paper at AIME presented orally in the AIME conference's last three editions.
- The submission must be based on a recent first-author journal or conference paper in the broad field of AI in Medicine with outstanding quality and novelty. We expect the awarded candidates to attend this year's AIME conference and give the invited talk, where AIME will waive the conference fee.
If you would like to nominate someone for this award, then we will need a one-page proposal stating how the individual has met the above criteria with any relevant details. In addition, please state any other relevant achievements in the field of AI in Medicine and how they have engaged with the community.
