Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Today, human–computer interaction (HCI) devices are used for interfacing with computers for different purposes such as data entry, control or communication. A brain–computer interface (BCI) is a channel of communication between the brain and an external acquisition device that is largely used for HCI. In computer science and bioengineering, BCI is used for different purposes such as device control, gaming, and supporting people with handicap, as in the cases of acquisition and interpretation of EEG/neural data which can control the moves of a wheelchair, replay some vocal synthesis, or also control a home automation system. Moreover, consumer-grade EEG devices allow detecting emotions and facial expressions and can be used for contextual brain research and BCI applications. In recent years, novel computational approaches have been studied and introduced for processing BCI data. In particular, Artificial-Intelligence-based methodologies have been largely adopted.

The aim of the Special Issue is to host recent research advances in the field of technology and applications of brain–computer interfaces and to highlight research issues and still open questions.

Potential topics include computational methodologies (but are not limited to):

  • Applied and Computational Mathematics;
  • Computational Intelligence;
  • Machine Learning;
  • Data mining;

when applied to:

  • Medical data;
  • Smart environment;
  • Educational;
  • Games and entertainment;
  • Security and authentication;
  •  Neuromarketing.

Furthermore, software tools designed for addressing any of the above topics might also be considered relevant for the Special Issue.

  • applied and computational mathematics (e.g., filtering, pre-processing);
  • computational intelligence (e.g., fuzzy logic, deep neural networks, evolutionary computation, probabilistic methods);
  • machine learning (e.g., support vector machine, Boltzmann machine);
  • data mining (e.g., feature extraction, clustering)

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. Electronics 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 1800 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.
