Special Issue "Entropy in Biomedical Engineering"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2021.
Interests: biomedical engineering; entropy analysis; biomedical signal processing; computing systems
The use of nonlinear methods in biomedical engineering has gained increasing popularity, with the entropy-based ones being of major importance. The various definitions of entropy have been extensively used in biomedical engineering, where in some topics, the vast majority of papers employ entropy analysis. Biomedical engineering, with complex and multidimensional problems, has always inspired researchers working on entropy, whilst significant entropy definitions have been initiated from the biomedical engineering field. The inherent ability of entropy to extract sensitive information from complex systems was catalytic in this wide acceptance.
This Special Issue focuses on contributions of the use of entropy in biomedical engineering, including but not limited to biomedical applications; analysis of biomedical data using entropy; contribution on entropy definitions inspired by biomedical engineering topics; entropy definitions evaluated with biomedical data; computing algorithms; and entropy as features in machine learning methods applied on biomedical data.

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 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.
