25–26 November 2021
The University of Melbourne
With the advent of digital approaches to mental health, modern artificial intelligence (AI) (machine learning in particular) is being used in the development of prediction, detection, and treatment solutions for mental health care. Although there has been considerable progress in digital health and the application of AI to physical health in general, the adoption of AI in mental health is relatively nascent. Opportunities are emerging however. In terms of treatment, AI can be incorporated into digital interventions, particularly web and smartphone apps, to enhance user experience and optimise personalised mental health care. In terms of prediction and detection, modern streams of abundant data, whether they be from medical imaging or an individual’s interactions with digital technologies, mean that data-driven AI methods can be employed to gain mental health insights.
This symposium, with a focus on AI in mental health, will provide an opportunity for researchers working at this intersection to share their work and meet other researchers working in this area.
Submission topics of interest include:
- Digital phenotyping from personal digital devices and the Internet of Things.
- Natural language processing of clinical texts and social media content.
- Chatbots and other AI agents for mental health.
- Expert systems for psychiatry.
- Applications of AI to neuroimaging or brain imaging.
- Ethics in the use of AI for mental health.
- Human-Computer Interaction aspects of AI-driven mental health tools.
- Clinical integration of AI solutions. Augmented psychiatry/psychology.

Given the uncertainty and (international) travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are planning on having one symposium day (Nov 25) on Zoom and the other (Nov 26) in person at The University of Melbourne, with the building/room to be confirmed closer to the date.
Submissions are now open.
If you are interested in presenting at this symposium, please submit an abstract of 150 - 300 words via the following EasyChair link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aimh2021. Abstract submissions are due by 17 September and will be reviewed. Acceptance outcome notifications will be sent by 30 September. If you have any questions please contact us via Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
