ICMH23-SSN-2: Sports and Health
Objectives and Motivation :

Nowadays, many people like to watch movies, spend a lot of time watching TV, and are often idle, away from hard work and physical exercise. However, a healthy brain only exists in a healthy body, and the body may need activity and vitality most, because laziness and inactivity will weaken the strength of the body over time. Therefore, it is very important and necessary to constantly encourage yourself to exercise. Sports play an important role in keeping your body healthy, even in a simple time, but don't underestimate this, because sports will bring poison to your soul, improve your mental health and strengthen your physical strength. Sports play a vital role in modern society, because sports are an integral part of an individual's physical and mental health. Sports can make you stronger and healthier, thus helping to reduce the incidence of obesity, diabetes and hypertension. Regular exercise through sports programs can also help to improve heart and lung function. People who engage in sports activities are also less likely to take drugs and smoke. Sports activities help to create opportunities and build friendships in healthy, safe and happy activities, all of which revolve around an active lifestyle.

ICMH23-SSN-3: Physical Activity and Sports are the basis for Quality-of-Life: programs for individuals, groups and societies

Objectives and Motivation:

The culture of practicing physical and sports activities and the quality of life
Practicing physical and sports activity is a necessity for every individual and at all stages of life because it is a means to maintain public health, and it has a fundamental role in developing the individual’s physical and functional competence, refining his personality, satisfying his needs, increasing his self-confidence, developing his talents, spending his free time and recreation, and also practicing sports activity is a requirement An essential and urgent necessity for the modern man.
As a result of the scientific and technological progress and the massive knowledge and information revolution that included all the different fields of life, man in this era has become characterized by lethargy, laziness, and lack of movement. Scientific and technological progress has contributed greatly to such inactivity and laziness, as reliance has become on the machine instead of movement, from here we find More than 30% of male adults and 40% of females suffer from the problem of obesity and obesity, which results in many diseases called inactivity diseases, including heart, arteries, lungs, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, osteoporosis and other psychological and social diseases.
Physical education in the school has become a very important part of the comprehensive educational process and a basic subject in the educational system and one of the elements of the success of the school curriculum. Social, psychological, and clarifying the importance of physical education by providing adequate opportunities to practice sports and achieve physical fitness and motor skills for its students.
The negative results of modern life represented in lack of movement - health problems - overcrowding, psychological pressure, the spread of suicide and depression, led to the development of studies in science, health and physical fitness, which confirmed in their results the need to provide an opportunity for all segments of society of all ages, social circles and genders to exercise. Physical and sports activities due to their positive impact on all levels
Proceeding from that, sport today is no longer a luxury or a form of entertainment only, but rather carrying out and participating in sporting activities has become a human right and a necessary practice in order for a person to live a healthy and sound life.
In this context, countries have worked to promote sports to take different developmental dimensions that concern first the individual health, intellectually, educationally and recreationally, and accordingly to the community to become a tributary of economic, social, cultural and sports development by encouraging the practice of physical and sports activity and supporting it in society through sports options for all keeping pace with the development of sports modernity, its developmental dimensions and implications, as:
- An important bet on all levels, and institutions, bodies and structures have established it with a desire to spread and circulate it
- An economic bet by competing to organize sports events nationally and globally
- A social bet, and because it is a means that enables people to converge and provides opportunities for communication and acquaintance
It is also a development bet because sports practice has become part of the individual’s lifestyle and quality, just as it has become an element of tourism attraction for societies and countries, where they use it to highlight their customs, traditions and the nature of their society. It also represents and occupies an important place in the field of education, health and entertainment and in social development policies.
It can be detailed according to the areas of sports socialization in terms of the following four levels.
First: at the individual level,
Secondly, at the group level,
Third: At the level of sports practice,
Fourth: At the level of sports socialization.
1- The personal level
2- The social level
3- The cultural and educational level
4 - to the level of health
5- The economic level
6- The psychological level
The main goal of sport as a tool is to contribute to the socialization of the individual within society, starting from the family to the group of comrades, the association, the club, or the sports structure.
A comparison between the characteristics of sport for all and the sport of competitions can help us to further understand the positive and negative aspects of the two sports in terms of their characteristics at levels: goals and motives, means and forms, conditions, organization and practice, impact and results, and cost.

ICMH23-SSN-4: Artificial Intelligence and Multimodal Data for Improving Disease Care

Objectives and motivations Nowadays the digital health aims to provide an improved efficiency of healthcare delivery, personalized, and timely disease care. Such improvement is essential for saving lives of patient of diseases as Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) and Cancer, that are known to be the leading cause of death worldwide. In the United States, 1 out of 3 adults have some form of CVD. It is projected that almost half of the US population will have at least one type of CVD by 2035 with total direct and indirect costs potentially crossing the $1 trillion. Today’s data modalities as Genetics, Epigenetics, Textual data as in electronic health records and medical data are mainly utilized in silos i.e. Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET). However, very few hybrid modalities are used. Integrating these data modalities becomes a burden on clinicians with the additional risk of inaccuracy and increased cost of care. In this special session, we invite papers of research that focus on fusion techniques that enable integration and modeling of these multiple modalities to provide complementary information that will help improve disease care. The large amount of available medical data and the advanced techniques of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL) techniques enable the automation of disease delivery and makes it more timely, accurate, and precise. The techniques used for multimodal data aim to integrate values of different scales and distributions of the data into a global latent feature space where all modalities will have uniform representation.
We welcome research papers, review papers and late breaking results that cover potential topics including but not limited to the following:
● The use of the state of the art AI/DL techniques for modeling multiple modalities
● The use of the state of the art AI/DL techniques for modeling multiple modalities for recommending the personalized treatments for various disease
● Comparing the performance of the state of the art AI/DL techniques on silos modalities and multiple modalities combined
● Proposing state of the art fusion techniques that will improve disease diagnosis
● Review papers on the use of multimodal data on various diseases
● Reviews on the state of the art AI/DL techniques used for modeling multimodal data for various diseases
