Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this email.

Paul Bodgan and I would like to invite you to submit an article to the IEEE Design & Test Special Issue on "Cyber‐Physical Systems for Medical Applications". We want to make it a great issue highlighting the work of top researchers and your submission can help us get there. D&T articles provide a great platform showcasing the state-of-the-art in the field of medical device circuits, signal processing, software, systems and certification. All papers will undergo the standard IEEE Design & Test review process.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Wearable and bio-implantable devices (e.g., pacemaker and cardiac assist devices), artificial organs (e.g., artificial pancreas), anesthesia and drug dosing control in clinical pharmacology, molecular dynamics analysis for medical diagnosis, smart health and wellbeing.
Distributed control & sensing: robust, verifiable, fault-tolerant control of uncertain, multi-modal systems; physiologic signal QoS.
Low-power system design for signal processing, long-term monitoring and delivery of therapy
Medical device hardware security, network protocols and attacks
Embedded, real-time, networked system infrastructures for medical CPS: Architecture, platform, middleware, and resource management issues and innovations related to safety, security, or verifiability
Certification of medical devices: quantifiable incremental certification of medical device interoperability, role of design tools and COTS, approval of non-deterministic and self-adaptive devices
Patient modeling & simulation: large scale, high fidelity organ and patient models for digital and analog system design and testing
Decision support systems: professionals and patients, as well as patient guidance services, which build on multimodal data fusion, data and pattern analysis, and modeling and predictive algorithms of patient health status
Medical practice-driven models and requirements: user-centric design, management of failures in a clinical environment, modeling of operational scenarios, including medical devices, caregivers, patients
Submissions should be submitted here:
