Computational intelligence techniques have shown to be effective in classifying human mental and medical state. This is useful for a number of applications including within mental health treatment technology and systems for monitoring and notifying about irregular medical state of elderly people living alone at home. Many different kinds of sensing technologies are relevant including sensors available in smartphones, sensor watches and ambient sensors.

Scope and Topics

The aim of the special session is to provide a forum to disseminate and discuss recent and significant research within applying computation intelligence to classify, model and predict future human mental and medical state. We invite interested authors to submit their original and unpublished work to this special session.

Topics of interest within the given application domain for the special session include (but are not limited to):

• Ambient assisted living

• Ambient sensor systems

• Contributions and Applications of Computational Neuroscience

• Data analytics and visualization

• Emotion detection

• Medical state classification and forecasting

• Mental disorders state classification and forecasting

• Mobile sensing

• Multi-sensor fusion

• On-body sensor systems

• Privacy in human monitoring

• Remote sensing and monitoring

• Robot companion sensing

• Sensitive data collection and storage

• Sensor networks

• Smart home technologies

• Temporal data analysis

• Time series modeling and forecasting

Submitted papers will be reviewed according to the IJCNN reviewing process and will be evaluated on their scientific value: originality, correctness, and writing style.

Accepted and presented papers will be published under the IJCNN 2018 proceedings. However, as a cross-disciplinary and CI applications oriented special session, cross-disciplinary work involving Fuzzy and Evolutionary learning is encouraged. For paper guidelines please visit and for submissions please visit and select "CDSS-23. Special Session special session on Computational Intelligence for Sensing and Predicting Human Mental and Medical State" as the Main research topic.
