Multimedia and multimodal sensing are now ubiquitous. They open up opportunities for innovations in personal healthcare ranging from medical imaging, personal monitoring using wearable sensors to analysing personal media archives. Incorporating machine learning, pattern recognition and deep learning offers more opportunities to create personalized healthcare including novel disease prevention and early disease diagnosis.

This special issue explores new directions in multimedia and multimodal sensing for personalized healthcare by bringing together diverse research domains including multimedia, personalized healthcare, ubiquitous computing and human computer interaction.


Topics of interest for this issue include, but are not limited to:

Multimedia data interpretation, visualization and fusion
Social sensing and context awareness
Ambient assisted living and sensor based assessment
Multimedia to support self-health monitoring
Multimedia data retrieval techniques
Virtual reality in multimedia healthcare data
Monitoring from heterogeneous multimedia healthcare data streams
Brain computer interfaces and corresponding multimedia analysis
Multimedia based eye movements and commands for impaired population
Multimodal sensing for behavioural understanding
Multimedia in personal health records
Day-to-day multimedia based health activity monitoring
Multimedia based short term/long term health monitoring
Health-related event detection in large-scale user data collection
Automated health status generation and prioritization.
