CiH 2019 : Special Issue on Computing in Healthcare- Elsevier Computers and Electrical Engineering
Call For Papers
Healthcare and treatment have long been one of the main concerns of humans. Along with the invention of a variety of medical sensors that can sense the physiological signs of the human body as well as mobile computers (such as smartphones), which always accompany the users, computer science and information technology have entered the healthcare and treatment domain and various projects and research studies have been defined and completed. Nowadays, computer sciences and technologies play an important role in promoting healthcare services around the world. Employing robots in surgeries, machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques in medical diagnosis, pervasive computing systems for anytime, anywhere and high-quality medical care, and distributed systems (such as clouds) for processing huge volume of medical data are just a few examples of computer use in healthcare.
This special issue focuses on healthcare computing systems and technologies. In particular, this issue will publish papers on the computational theories, methodologies, techniques and tools that, in practice, can improve health services.
The topics of interest are:
Network infrastructures, architectures, and protocols for e-health
Pervasive healthcare systems
Big data in healthcare
Parallel and distributed systems in healthcare
Data mining in healthcare
Continuous and event-driven monitoring of patients
Image processing in healthcare
Modeling and simulation in healthcare
Computer assisted learning in medical education
Emerging cloud-based services and applications in healthcare
E-Health services and applications for physical and mental health
