The selected best full-papers of this conference will be nominated for publication in the Special APAMI Issue of the renowned International Journal of Computer Methods and Programs in Biomedicine (CMPB) with an Impact Factor 3.424.

The conference theme is “Informatics of Patient Engagement” which WHO has been promoting globally, but we also invite a lot of paper in any field in medical informatics from all over the world.

As Coronavirus has been the main medical concern all over the world right now, and it seems to continue for some time, we also encourage and welcome any new research on "Medical Informatics for COVID-19" to APAMI 2020.

Thus, this conference will provide you an excellent opportunity to establish new relationships with professional colleagues from various nations including the Asia-Pacific region.
