Neurocomputing Special Issue MTBMPR 2016 : Neurocomputing (Impact Factor: 2.083) Special Issue on Recent Research in Medical Technology Based on Multimedia and Pattern Recognition
Call For Papers
Nowadays, Multimedia and Pattern Recognition based medical technology is becoming a hot topic, which can explore and utilize multimedia information from multiple sources, including video streams, images, voice, heartbeat and blood pressure data. Based on these kinds of technologies, medical device is able to percept, process in real-time, analyze and evaluate multi-source and multi-dimensional data, thus has been widely used in disease diagnosis, rehabilitation, health monitoring, assisted surgery and other medical area. Many of these applications require the multimedia and pattern recognition paradigm using medical sensors. The notion of neurocomputing is becoming a reality with the development of variety of multimedia technologies. The intelligence functions of multimedia and pattern recognition technologies can be applied to Smart Hospital, Smart Clinic, Smart Medical Application for Individual. Accordingly, the assessment and evaluation methods need to be developed and involved into the iterative designing process.
This special issue calls for high quality, up-to-date technology related to medical technology based on multimedia and pattern recognition and serves as a forum for researchers all over the world to discuss their works and recent advances in multimedia/pattern recognition medical technology or device and its clinical applications. Both research paper and review paper are welcome for submission. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and selected on the basis of both their quality and their relevance to the theme of this special issue.
