Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Following the success of the 13th MAVEBA International Workshop (held in Florence, Italy, 12–13th September, 2023), we propose a Special Issue of Bioengineering that collects an extended version of the contributions presented at the Workshop.
The MAVEBA Workshop concerns the study of the human voice from the methodological point of view and its biomedical applications. The series of MAVEBA international workshops started in 1999, and a multidisciplinary meeting stimulating contacts between specialists active in bioengineering, clinical applications, and industrial development is held every two years.
This SI welcomes contributions ranging from fundamental research to advanced technologies about models and the analysis of signals and images of the human vocal apparatus and any fields related to all kinds of biomedical applications, with emphasis on translational research, the link with the “real” complex world of the human being.
This Special Issue is open to the submission of papers focused on multidisciplinary approaches involving bioengineering, otolaryngology, phoniatrics, neurology, surgery, psychology, psychiatry, logopaedic, linguistics, singing, and related fields, with applications ranging from the newborn to the elderly.
Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Tools and methods for voice recording;
- Wearable devices, mobile apps, and human-computer interaction;
- Software tools for voice and image analysis;
- Modeling and Analysis of voice and speech;
- Modeling of vocal folds and vocal tract;
- Signal processing methods for singing and drama, classical and modern singing, and acted voice;
- AI and deep learning in voice recognition, synthesis, and classification;
- Computational neuroscience;
- Acoustical and image analysis of the vocal folds;
- Modeling and simulation of vocal physiology;
- Biomechanics of the vocal folds;
- Intonation, mood, stress, and related neurological disorders;
- Newborn cry, prematurity, and neurological disorders;
- Voice analysis and native language.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Bioengineering 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 2700 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.
