Call for papers: "Medical Informatics and Technology"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Information and Communication Technology.

Medical applications such as medical image analysis are becoming increasingly important in everyday life. But the success of these methodologies is still in doubt due to the human intervention in their systems. This indirectly highlights the necessity for automation techniques for these applications, which can improve the performance to higher extent. The major problem however is that the level of usage of automation techniques is very low in these applications.
This special issue will focus on exploring the applicability of various automation techniques for medical applications. The issue will also give emphasis to innovative methodologies for applications in medical informatics. This issue will thus serve as a platform for researchers to share their ideas and present solutions for human problems in the area of medical informatics.
Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
  • Medical image processing
  • Biomedical signal analysis
  • Information security
  • Telemedicine
  • Data mining
  • Medical image compression
  • De-noising in medical images
  • Soft computing approaches
  • Animation and 3-D analysis
  • Medical image understanding
  • Bio-sensors
  • Data transmission
  • Modelling and statistical analysis
  • Medical image classification and segmentation
  • Hardware, medical equipment
  • Any other topics related to medical informatics
Important Dates
Full paper submission: 22 July, 2013
Notification to authors: 22 August, 2013
Final version submission: 30 September, 2013
