Publication: May/June 2014

** Introduction **
Computing plays an important role in many facets of our lives, increasingly so in aspects of individual and social well-being. Individual health is encouraged with the development of intelligent systems, apps, gadgets, and mobile systems that focus on diet, exercise, and information provision. Medication, surgery, and assistive devices rely on intelligent systems to analyze data and human responses, guiding the implementation and management of therapies and interventions. In addition to work that focuses on individuals, there is a proliferation in use of intelligent systems for large-scale analysis of biomedical data, socially relevant data, and metadata, such as the spread of disease or certain health-habits in populations.

In this special issue, we are particularly interested in research papers depicting intelligent systems and their components, describing a novel technical component as well as its rigorous evaluation. The evaluations would ideally include both technical and human-impact evaluations. Example topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
•       Intelligent systems that encourage, support, and maintain existing health and well-being in large groups of the population;
•       Intelligent systems for individual patients, consumers, and clinicians to improve medication, treatments, therapies, and outcomes in medicine;
•       Intelligent systems that use, combine, or create new and large-scale data types for analysis, visualization, and discovery; and
•       Intelligent systems on small, mobile, or wireless systems.

** Submission Guidelines **
Submissions should be 3,000 to 5,400 words (counting a standard figure or table as 200 words) and should follow IEEE Intelligent Systems style and presentation guidelines (www.computer.org/intelligent/author). The manuscripts cannot have been published or be currently submitted for publication elsewhere.
We strongly encourage submissions that include audio, video, and community content, which will be featured on the IEEE Computer Society Web site along with the accepted papers.
