Personal Bio:

Alan Wang is a principal investigator and Associate Professor at University of Auckland. He has more than ten years of research experience in bioengineering informatics and integrated medicine, especially in advancing the role of medical informatics in health care. His research interests include bioengineering, data informatics, neurocomputing, and biomedical statistics and simulation. He has developed medical data analytics methods for mobile health and personalized diagnosis and prognosis based on intelligent computing theories. He has experience analyzing huge cohorts of patient data with applications of early diagnosis, disease understanding, and effective treatment of patients with different disorders. He serves as an Editorial Board Member and an Active Reviewer for several international journals.

Workshop Description:


Intelligent Computing for Medical Data Analysis (ICMDA) is playing an increasingly important role in medical informatics and the healthcare system, especially after the booming of deep learning. ICMDA can reveal diagnostically valuable knowledge from multidimensional and multimodal medical data, providing fast, accurate, and helpful guidance for the diagnosis/prognosis of different diseases. With the rapid development of artificial intelligence and parallel computing, ICMDA involves multidisciplinary technologies such as radiology, pathology, computer science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, image processing, pattern recognition, computer vision, statistics, informatics, and visualization. It can automatically and intelligently extract valuable information from big medical data and combines prior knowledge to improve clinical performance.


Workshop on Intelligent Computing for Medical Data Analysis 2023 aims to bring together medical doctors, scientists, engineers, and students to discuss the latest advances in interdisciplinary research on AI for medical data analysis with clinical applications using machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques/methods. This workshop is designed to introduce Artificial Intelligence methods and connect them with applications at the University of Auckland that can leverage AI in research, such as early diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases, intelligent computing for cancer data, stroke prediction and precision rehabilitation, etc.

Visitor visas and the NZeTA

  • Check if you need a visitor visa or an NZeTA

    If you come to New Zealand on holiday, you’ll need to get either an NZeTA or a visitor visa — unless you’re an Australian citizen.

  • How to apply for a visitor visa

    If you come to New Zealand on holiday, you might need to apply for a visitor visa before you arrive. Work out what you need to do to apply.

  • How to request an NZeTA

    Find out how to request an NZeTA (New Zealand electronic Travel Authority) and how much it costs. Allow 72 hours for your request to be processed.

  • How to pay the International Visitor Levy

    Most people visiting NZ must pay the NZD$35 International Visitor Levy. You'll pay the IVL at the same time you pay for your NZeTA or visitor visa.


Should your application be denied, the organizing committee cannot change the decision of visa officer, nor will CONF-CDS engage in discussion or correspondence with the visa application center on behalf of the applicant. The registration fee CANNOT be refunded when the VISA application of individual being denied.
