Special Issue On: Modeling of Biomedical Systems
Asst. Prof. Ahmad Taher Azar, Misr University for Science & Technology, Egypt
Prof. Laura M. Roa Romero, Biomedical Engineering Group, Engineering School of the University of Seville, Seville, Spain
Biomedical modeling is a growing and important applications area receiving significant interest as a result of the medical impact of its applications. It’s a highly interdisciplinary since it encompasses various aspects of several different disciplines (e.g., computer engineering, computer science, electronics, system automation, physiology, biology, medicine, chemistry, physics, material sciences, telemedicine, etc.). Interdisciplinary and synergistic interactions among these various disciplines are key aspects of biomedical modeling applications.
The objective of this special issue is to showcase the most recent developments and research in the field "Biomedical Modeling", as well as enhance its state-of-the-art. This special issue solicits original, full-length original articles on new findings and developments from researchers, academicians, and practitioners from industry in the areas of modeling and simulation of biomedical systems.
Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:
Application of soft computing techniques to clinical decision making
Bioinformatics and computational biology
Biomaterials design and tissue engineering
Biomechanics and artificial organs
Biomedical imaging, pattern recognition and visualization
Biomedical signal processing
Brain research and brain computer interfaces
Computer-based systems for diagnosing diseases
Computer modeling of physiologic systems (blood pressure control, renal function, visual and auditory nervous circuits, etc.)
Healthcare information systems
Rehabilitation, external support devices, etc.
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers for this special theme issue on Modeling of Biomedical Systems on or before July 31, 2012. All submissions must be original and may not be under review by another publication. INTERESTED AUTHORS SHOULD CONSULT THE JOURNAL’S GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS at http://www.igi-global.com/Files/AuthorEditor/guidelinessubmission.pdf. All submitted papers will be reviewed on a double-blind, peer review basis. Papers must follow APA style for reference citations. Manuscripts must be sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title of “Special Issue – IJSBBT” as a Word document.
