Special Issue "Signal Processing and Machine Learning for Biomedical Data"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2020).
Interests: medical imaging; artificial intelligence; applied physics; high-energy physics
This Special Issue focus on advanced techniques in signal processing, analysis, modelling, and classification, applied to a variety of medical diagnostic problems. Biomedical data play a fundamental role in many fields of research and clinical practice. Very often the complexity of these data and their large volume makes it necessary to develop advanced analysis techniques and systems. Furthermore, the introduction of new techniques and methodologies for diagnostic purposes, especially in the field of medical imaging, requires new signal processing and machine learning methods.
The recent progress in machine learning techniques, and in particular deep learning, has revolutionized various fields of artificial vision, significantly pushing the state of the art of artificial vision systems into a wide range of high-level tasks. Such progress can help address problems in the analysis of biomedical data.
This Special Issue places particular emphasis on contributions dealing with practical, applications-led research on the use of methods and devices in clinical diagnosis and patient monitoring and management.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
