Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the rapid advance of technology, AI techniques are being effectively used in several fields, including health applications aimed to improve the efficiency of diagnosis and treatments to support therapeutic decisions as well as the prediction of outcome in many clinical scenarios. Modern health treatments are faced with the challenge of acquiring, analyzing, and applying the large amount of data, such as images and physiological raw signals, necessary to solve complex problems. The contribution from different sources of information is often complementary and, hence, multimodal approaches are often proposed. This Special Issue will provide a forum for the publication of articles that address broad challenges in both theoretical and application aspects of AI in health applications. We are inviting original research work covering novel theories, innovative methods, and meaningful applications that can potentially lead to significant advances in the field of AI and multimodal approaches for health applications as well as to stimulate continuing efforts in the application of AI approaches to solve health problems.

The following topics of this Special Issue explicitly include, but are not limited to:

  • Monitoring and decision-making support
  • Inference models for prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis
  • Interpretability and trustworthiness of AI methods in health applications
  • Sensor technology health applications
  • Legal and ethical aspects of health technology
  • Medical image acquisition and processing
  • Novel AI techniques in medical data processing and analysis
  • AI in the mental disorder detection
  • AI applications for COVID-19 pandemic
  • Virtual and augmented reality for health applications
  • Cyberpsychology

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Sensors 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 2200 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.
