Special Issue "Entropy and Cardiac Physics"
A special issue of Entropy (ISSN 1099-4300).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2014)
We aim to present novel techniques, approaches and applications of entropy in the interdisciplinary field of cardiac physics. As such, we hope to welcome contributions from a wide range of disciplines, including all sciences: engineering and medicine. By presenting the most current research in this area, we hope to foster new collaborations and increase dissemination of ideas, as well as to emphasize the importance of interdisciplinary work.
In this way, we expect to encourage and facilitate the emergence of new tools and methods to help further understanding of the cardiovascular system.
Ultimately, the goal must be to establish our techniques in medical practice to help to prolong and enhance the life of millions suffering from cardiac malaises and diseases.
For this special issue we welcome submissions related to the use of entropy measures in cardiac physics. We envisage contributions that aim at clarifying the benefit of using entropy in cardiac physics, in order to demonstrate its profound impact on this field. In addition, we hope to receive original papers illustrating the wide variety of applications of entropy-based methods in cardiac physics.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
