Call For Papers

Scope and Aim

Biomedical signal processing involves the analysis and treatment of the physiological electrical activities measured using sensors placed on a living thing, in order to provide useful information on which decisions can be made. Recently, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) have received a great attention to solve difficult and complex problems related to biosignals analysis and processing; where the traditional signal processing and conventional machine learning techniques have shown their limitations to solve such problems. Indeed, the recent advances in this area have brought an impressive progress to solve several practical and difficult problems in many fields including medicine, e-health, healthcare, neuroscience, brain-computer interface (BCI), neurofeedback, robotics, robotic exoskeletons and biometrics, etc. In this context, the advanced learning techniques such as deep learning, reinforcement learning, deep reinforcement learning, statistical learning have shown their effectiveness to resolve various problems of detection, classification, clustering, segmentation, control, diagnosis, etc.; and thus becomes useful solutions to be investigated more for other open problems.

The aim of this special issue is to bring together researchers and scientists in the fields of biomedical signal processing, AI and ML, to present and discuss the recent advances on learning methods and intelligent approaches for biomedical signal and image processing.


The main topics that are of interest to this session include, but are not limited to:

- AI for biomedical signal processing and analysis
- ML for biomedical signal processing and analysis
- Advanced ML for biomedical data processing (e.g. deep learning, reinforcement learning, deep reinforcement learning, statistical learning…)
- Biomedical data processing in Big Data
- Advanced biomedical signal and image processing methods with application in medicine, e-health, healthcare, neuroscience, BCI, neurofeedback, robotics, robotic exoskeletons, biometrics, etc.
- Related applications
