SPECIAL ISSUE ON ''Modeling of Biomedical Systems''

International Journal of Systems Biology and Biomedical Technologies (IJSBBT)


Guest Editors:

  1. Asst. Prof. Ahmad Taher Azar.  
  2. Prof. Laura M. Roa Romero, Biomedical Engineering Group, Engineering School of the University of Seville, Seville, Spain




Biomedical modeling is a growing and important applications area receiving significant interest as a result of the medical impact of its applications. It’s a highly interdisciplinary since it encompasses various aspects of several different disciplines (e.g., computer engineering, computer science, electronics, system automation, physiology, biology, medicine, chemistry, physics, material sciences, telemedicine). Interdisciplinary and synergistic interactions among these various disciplines are key aspects of biomedical modeling applications.




The objective of this special issue is to showcase the most recent developments and research in the field ''Biomedical Modeling'', as well as to enhance its state-of-the-art.

This special issue solicits original, full length original articles on new findings and developments from researchers, academicians and practitioners from industries, in the area of modeling and simulation of biomedical systems.




Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:

      Biomedical modeling

      Medical Instrumentation

      Biomedical imaging, Pattern Recognition and Visualization

      Biomedical Signal Processing

      Computer modelling of physiologic systems (blood pressure control, renal function, visual and auditory nervous circuits, etc.)

      Bioinformatics and computational biology

      Data mining

      Biomechanics and Artificial organs


      Brain research and brain computer interfaces

      computer-based systems for diagnosing diseases

      Biomaterials design and tissue engineering

      Application of soft computing techniques to clinical decision making

      Rehabilitation, external support devices, etc.

      Healthcare information systems
