Call for papers: Computational Intelligence and Health Technologies

A special issue of International Journal of Bioinformatics Research and Applications

Health technologies research brings together complementary interdisciplinary research skills in the development of innovative medical devices and biotechnology processes for health technology applications. The focus of this issue is on the study of health and disease processes, and the development of new medical devices and advanced biotechnology applications for early detection, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of lifestyle diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, neurological disorder, cancer, etc. The scope of this issue includes neural computation, fuzzy systems, support vector machine, evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence, and other computational intelligence methods or hybrid computational intelligence approaches. Applications of these computational intelligence methods to health technologies are the main focus of the special issue.

We are soliciting contributions which cover, but are not limited to, the following applications:
  • Intelligent wheel chairs
  • Protein-ligand conformation
  • Analysis of heart rate dynamics, cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, neurological disorders
  • Non-invasive instrumentations
  • Early detection of cancer
  • Biomedical signal and image processing, monitoring, and control
  • Physiological modeling
Important Dates
