Special Issue on "Recent Advanced Applications of Rehabilitation and Medical Robotics"
Submission Date: 2022-10-31

Special Issue link: Dear Colleagues, Robotic technologies are able to provide precise and accurate sensing and movement capabilities. Recently, advances in the applications of rehabilitation and medical robots have led to powerful insights about the nature of understanding and augmenting rehabilitation and medical treatments. However, new and challenging theoretical and technological problems are being posed. One can apply state-of-the-art robotic technologies in different ways, including robot-assisted surgery, upper and lower limb rehabilitation, cognitive computation, behavioural intelligence and statistics. Such convergence of interests is encouraging, but few researchers in this active area communicate across disciplinary boundaries, and even fewer are skilled in the ‘language’ and techniques of more than one approach. With this new era of rehabilitation and medical robotics, much research is needed in order to continue to advance the field and also to evaluate the multidisciplinary concerns of the existing robotics and learning techniques. The main aim of this Special Issue is to seek high-quality submissions that highlight emerging applications and address recent breakthroughs in medical and rehabilitation robotics. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Robot-assisted surgery; Upper and lower limb rehabilitation; Medical image analysis; EEG/sEMG data analytics; Stroke rehabilitation; Brain-computer interfaces; Haptic sensing; Neuro-imaging based diagnosis; Neural image captioning; Cognitive computation for healthcare; Targeted neuroplasticity; Human activity recognition; Extraction and optimisation techniques; Human-machine interfaces/integrations; Humanoid service robotics; Teleoperation/ telerobotics; Medical devices and instrumentation; Mobile healthcare; Rehabilitation games.

Special Issue on Stretchable and Wearable Electronics
Submission Date: 2022-12-20

Dear Colleagues, Stretchable and wearable electronics have emerged and received significant interest in both research and commerce in recent years. This interest stems from the huge demand for their unique electrical and mechanical performance, which can endow electronic devices unprecedented applications. On the one hand, they can be used in circumstances where they were previously difficult to apply, for example, human skin, tissue-like electronics, stretchable supercapacitors and other circumstances, which greatly broadens the application scenarios for electronic devices. On the other hand, a large number of solution-processable organic or nano materials are adopted in them, and printing technology such as 3D printing, ink-jet printing and some other deposition methods, such as thermal evaporation, sputtering and chemical vapor deposition (CVD), alone or in combination, can also be used to fabricate them. These features make them significantly more available compared to traditional silicon-based electronics, making the manufacturing cost significantly lower and facilitating the diffusion of flexible electronics. As a result, they play an extremely important role in promoting the development of stretchable and wearable electronics. Furthermore, 5G technology and Internet of Things (IoT) technology are expected to contribute to dramatic changes in the fields of healthcare, environmental monitoring, human–machine interface, and energy conversion. The aims of this Special Issue are to showcase the latest developments in stretchable and wearable electronics, which will cover, but are not limited to, the following categories: Flexible electronics; Textile-based electronic devices; Stretchable supercapacitors; Biological and chemical sensors; Organic thin-film transistors; Photovoltaic cells; Flexible logic circuits; Flexible photodetectors; Actuators; Hydrogels.

Special Issue on Computer-Aided Design for Integrated Circuits and Systems
Submission Date: 2023-01-31

Dear Colleagues, Currently, we are witnessing a rapid development of semiconductor technology. As a result of the transition from microelectronics to nanoelectronics, new families of VLSI chips have appeared. The modern integrated circuits and systems consist of billions and billions of semiconductor transistors. Now, a single chip is enough to implement very complex digital and mixed digital-analog systems. The stiff competition between the manufacturers of integrated circuits and VLSI systems guarantees that only the best products come to the market. The enormous complexity of modern circuits and systems requires the use of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tools that automate the different stages of the design flow. Unfortunately, modern CAD tools cannot effectively use all the potential opportunities provided by current integrated circuits. As before, many problems related to the design process still require active human intervention. Therefore, there is an obvious need to improve the theory and practice in circuit design automation in order to provide solutions to these problems. To sum up, the ever-increasing complexity of current and future industrial projects requires the development of efficient CAD tools that facilitate the implementation of complex integrated circuits and systems. The aim of this Special Issue is to present novel practical and theoretical approaches related to the CAD of integrated circuits and systems. In particular, methodologies, tools, algorithms, and architectures that allow improving the efficiency of integrated circuits and systems in terms of performance, area occupancy, or power consumption are welcome. Topics of interest of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following: · Theory of Computer-Aided Design; · Design methods for reliable and high-efficient (in speed, power consumption or area) integrated circuits and systems; · Formal methods for System-Level Design; · Energy-efficient integrated circuits and systems; · Design flow for ASICs and programmable devices (FPGAs and CPLDs); · Synthesis of synchronous/asynchronous digital systems; · Benchmarking in circuit design automation; · Design for testability; · Design, implementation, and verification of Finite State Machines; · Packing and technology mapping; · Verification and simulation of digital integrated circuits and systems; · HW/SW co-design; · · Design exploration; · CAD for embedded systems; · CAD for Cyber-Physical Systems; · CAD for networking systems; · Reconfigurable computing.

Submission deadline: 2023-01-31 Dear Colleagues, Display technologies have become integral parts of our everyday lives. Their applications cover from smartphones, televisions, cars, and watches to emergent augmented reality and virtual reality. Mini-LED, OLED and Micro-LED are the three next-generation display technologies that have escalated from the research and development phase and have now materialized into commercial products. Despite their similarity in name, they are actually quite different technologically and backed by different display manufacturers. Several technological and scientific efforts have continuously been made to provide better display products. These three technologies have revolutionized the display world, and each one has different advantages and disadvantages in terms of contrast ratio, resolution density, color gamut, viewing angle, power consumption and the asking price. This Special Issue is in the scope of optoelectronics and flexible electronics and it welcomes theoretical and experimental studies related to the emerging Mini-LED, OLED and Micro-LED display technologies and highlight the current status of this emissive displays. The capability of these technologies to realize monolithic and heterogeneous devices and their integration in transparent/flexible support to be used in “see-through” applications will be addressed. This issue also covers the light generation mechanisms based on the structure–property relationships and on the size-dependent power efficiency. This Special Issue will also deal with more general aspects such as the synthesis of new materials, the engineering of new device architectures and realization, the photophysical and photoelectric characteristics. Submitted manuscripts should address one or more of the following themes, although other relevant topics will also be considered: The path for OLED in displays; Thin film OLED encapsulation; Efficient material based OLED development; Light extraction; Micro-LED array and growth techniques; Micro-LED arrays on flexible substrates; Color conversion techniques; GaN LED monolithic integration for lighting and displays; Internal Quantum Efficiency of µ-led device; Mini‐LED full-color displays; Mini-LED and µ-LED displays pixel circuit design; Next generation display technologies.
