Call For Papers

Neuroimaging scans, also called brain imaging scans, are being used more and more to help detect and diagnose a few medical disorders and illnesses. Currently, the main use of neuroimaging scans for mental disorders is in research studies to learn more about the disorders. Brain scans alone now are commonly used to diagnose neurological and psychiatric diseases, such as Meningioma, Multiple sclerosis, glioma, Huntington’s disease, Herpes encephalitis, Pick’s disease, Schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, Cerebral toxoplasmosis, Sarcoma, Subdural hematoma¸ etc.

To increase the diagnosis accuracy on neurological and psychiatric diseases, multimodal data fusion of neuroimaging scans is expected, as it brings together data from multiple modalities into a common reference frame. In the modern sense, multimodal data fusion is frequently taken to mean the integration of the multimodal 1D/2D/3D/4D data in a common reference anatomical space through co-registration using various image processing methods. The sources of data modalities are from a wide variety of clinical settings, including electrocardiography (ECG), electroencephalography (EEG), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), electrocorticography (ECoG), functional MRI (fMRI), positron emission tomography (PET), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), and Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI).

The main aim of advances in multimodality data fusion in neuroimaging is to exploit complementary properties of several single-modality scanning protocols in order to improve each of them considered separately, so as to improve the diagnosis accuracy of neurological and psychiatric diseases. This special issue aims to provide a forum for academic and industrial communities to report recent theoretical and application results related to Advances in Multimodality data fusion in neuroimaging from the perspectives of theories, algorithms, architectures, and applications.

Manuscripts (which should be original and not previously published either in full or in part or presented even in a more or less similar form at any other forum) covering unpublished research that report the advances in multimodality data fusion in neuroimaging are invited.

The manuscript will be judged solely on the basis of new contributions excluding the contributions made in earlier publications. Contributions should be described in sufficient detail to be reproducible on the basis of the material presented in the paper and the references cited therein.

Topics appropriate for this special issue include (but are not necessarily limited to):

• New techniques, models, algorithms, and clinical experiences for multimodality data fusion systems
• Deep learning models for multimodality neuroimaging data processing
• Feature fusion for multimodality intelligent systems
• Shared multimodality representation learning
• Improved algorithms for multimodality neuroimaging data fusion systems
• Analysis on big multimodality data fusion
• Hierarchical intelligent systems for multimodality data fusion
• Multimodality data fusion applications for neuroimaging
• Multimodality data fusion applications in audio areas
• Multimodality data fusion applications in computer vision related areas
• Signal processing on graphs for fusion methods
• Computational issues in fusion methods for real-time bio-signal analysis
• Heterogeneous sensor fusion in big neuroimaging data context
• Tensor methods and constraint techniques for multimodality data fusion

Please prepare your paper along with all the supplementary materials for your submission. The papers submitted to this special issue must be original. Besides that, they must not be published, “under review”, or even be submitted in any other journal, conference, or workshop. Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three independent reviewers and will be chosen based on contributions including their originality, scientific quality as well as their suitability to this special issue. The journal editors will make the final decision on which papers will be accepted.

Authors must ensure that you carefully read the guide for authors before submitting your papers. The guide for authors and link for online submission is available on the Information Fusion homepage at: Please select “SI:AMDFN” when you reach the “Article Type” step when submitting your papers.
