Medical applications such as medical image analysis are becoming increasingly important in everyday life. But the success of these methodologies is still in doubt due to the human intervention in their systems. This indirectly highlights the necessity for automation techniques for these applications, which can improve the performance to higher extent. The major problem however is that the level of usage of automation techniques is very low in these applications.

This special issue will focus on exploring the applicability of various automation techniques for medical applications. The issue will also give emphasis to innovative methodologies for applications in medical informatics. This issue will thus serve as a platform for researchers to share their ideas and present solutions for human problems in the area of medical informatics.
