Special Issue on Mobile Cloud-Assisted Paradigms for Management of Multimedia Big Data in Healthcare Systems

in Elsevier "International Journal of Information Management", IF: 3.872 (SCI/SCIE).

The recent advancements in mobile cloud computing have shown promising results in the areas of business, industry, and sciences in general and healthcare systems in particular. Currently, the amount of sensitive medical data is increasing at an exponential rate, making its management, indexing, searching and retrieval inherently difficult for healthcare centers. Therefore, researchers have started looking at mobile-cloud-assisted paradigms for effective management and analysis of large-scale raw data in remote patient monitoring centers and centralized healthcare systems, because such paradigms have created new opportunities in healthcare for patients, clinical staff and specialists. Considering the volume, velocity, versatility, security, indexing, and retrieval of big medical data, new diverse challenges for practitioners and researchers of mobile-cloud computing and medical data have arisen. To address those challenges, mobile-cloud computing combined with computational intelligence paradigms, such as neural networks, swarm intelligence, expert systems, evolutionary computing, fuzzy systems, and artificial immune systems, can play an important role. Furthermore, mobile cloud computing combined with existing and emerging technologies can provide numerous innovative services in healthcare, such as real-time remote patient monitoring, on-demand surveillance, collaborative event monitoring, and tele-endoscopy.

In this special issue, we invite researchers to contribute high-quality articles and surveys focusing on mobile cloud computing and computational intelligence techniques for effective management of multimedia big data in healthcare systems. The relevant topics of this special issue include but are not limited to:

• Mobile cloud computing for efficient management of medical data in healthcare systems.
• Deep learning and machine learning algorithms for understanding of multimedia data in healthcare systems
• Intelligent techniques for multimedia security in healthcare systems
• Computational intelligence based solutions for sensitive medical data in healthcare systems
• Tools and services for data analysis in healthcare systems
• Evolutionary algorithms for medical data analysis and recommendations
• Feature extraction methods for efficient indexing and retrieval of medical data
• Chaotic systems for privacy issues of medical data in healthcare centers
• Intrusion detection and information hiding techniques for security of medical data
• Mobile and wearable computing systems and services for medical big data analysis
• Mobile cloud-assisted healthcare opportunities for future smart cities

Instructions for Submission

Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, presentation, relevance and contributions, as well as their suitability to the special issue. The submitted papers must be written in excellent English and describe original research that has not been published nor currently under review by other venues. Previously published conference papers should be clearly identified by the authors at the submission stage and an explanation should be provided about how such papers have been extended to be considered for this special issue. Extended conference contributions must have at least 50% difference from the original works (the authors must indicate the conference name and make a reference to the base conference paper). Editorial office and GEs team will make an initial determination on the suitability and scope of all submissions. Papers that either lack originality, clarity in presentation or fall outside the scope of the special issue will not be sent for review and the authors will be promptly informed in such cases. Final acceptance will be based on their qualities and recommendations of the reviewers. The authors must select article type “MobileCloud MMBDHS” when submitting your paper to
