Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are inviting submissions to this Special Issue on “Artificial Intelligence for Pediatric Monitoring, Diagnosis and Treatment”.

The term “artificial intelligence” (AI) refers to the general ability of computing algorithms to emulate human decision-making, while machine learning (ML) is a subdivision of AI that includes techniques that enable machines to learn from data without explicit programming. Over recent decades, both have deeply influenced personalized diagnostics and therapeutics, drug discovery, and medical imaging. These approaches have the potential to significantly improve our understanding of diseases and of therapeutic efficacy in both children and infants. Algorithms are employed in ML for the classification of data and to make predictions, while neonatal AI applications involve neuromonitoring, prediction of respiratory conditions such as respiratory distress syndrome, chronic lung disease, sepsis, retinopathy of prematurity, vital sign monitoring, jaundice, and more. Pediatric AI applications include analysis of medical imaging to improve the diagnosis of an array of conditions, and prediction of infections and chemotherapy-induced complications.

In the near future, AI may be able to improve clinical care and potentially transform healthcare resource organization, and there is a growing interest in the medical field regarding the modern applications of artificial intelligence in neonatal and pediatric care. In this Special Issue, we invite submissions exploring cutting-edge research and recent advances in the field of artificial Intelligence for pediatric monitoring, diagnosis and treatment, encompassing both theoretical and experimental studies, as well as comprehensive reviews and survey papers.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
