Bio medical signals have high significance towards a lot of applications. In recent decades, soft computing has emerged as a potential candidate for solving complex and intricate global optimisation problems, which are otherwise difficult to solve by traditional methods. At present image processing, signal processing, industrial optimisation, control system applications and power system application fields provide challenging results to be interpreted by researchers.

They are applying soft computing techniques for solving such problems. Some popular soft computing techniques for global optimisation includes genetic algorithms (GA), differential evolution (DE), ant colony optimisation (ACO), particle swarm optimisation (PSO), artificial bee colony (ABC), firefly algorithm (FFA) algorithm etc. These methods have been successfully applied to a wide range of benchmarks and real-world application problems. This special issue seeks to bring forward and highlight applications of soft computing for real world problems especially bio-medical signal and image processing. Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work to this special issue.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at IEEE Sponsored International Conference on Engineering and Technology, but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
