Call for papers: Computational intelligence techniques and data mining in biomedical engineering

Computational intelligence and data mining focuses on machine and data learning in biomedical imaging, computer-aided diagnosis and therapy, and intelligent biomedical image processing and analysis. It develops computational models, methods and tools for biomedical engineering related to computer-aided diagnostics (CAD), computer-aided surgery (CAS), computational anatomy and bioinformatics.

Large volumes of complex data are often a key feature of biomedical and engineering problems and computational intelligence and data mining techniques helps to address such problems. Practical and validated solutions to hard biomedical and engineering problems can be developed by the applications of neural networks, support vector machines, reservoir computing, evolutionary optimization, biosignal processing, pattern recognition methods and other techniques to address complex problems of the real world.

This special issue provides the latest research and development achievements in recent trends in biomedical engineering via computational intelligent techniques and data mining techniques and to promote their applications in all important emerging research fields. Acceptance will be based on quality, originality, and the practical value of the work.
