Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The IEEE Symposium in Signal Processing and Information 2017 will be held over the period 18–20 December in Bilbao, Spain. For seventeen years this series of international symposia has congregated researchers from around the world, covering topics that relate to signal processing and information technology in a wide range of applications. Given the extremely rapid pace of development in information technologies applied to healthcare, in this year’s Symposium we will discuss topics related with information-centered healthcare. With this Special Issue we look forward to summarize remarkable contributions made by the academic community attending to the Symposium in health analytics, technology for active aging, mobile-health, signal processing for healthcare, integrated cancer, medical imaging and games for health and wellbeing.
