Call for Papers: Special Issue on Brain Big Data in the Hyper World

Brain Informatics: Brain Data Computing and Health Studies (BRIN)
An International Journal (Springer)
Guest Editors:
Stephen S. Yau, Arizona State University, USA
Ning Zhong, Maebashi Institute of Technology, Japan

An emerging hyper world encompasses all human activities in a social-cyber-physical space, in which big data are used as a bridge to connect humans, computers, and things. It is a trend or attempt to integrate brain big data into the hyper world for realizing the harmonious symbiosis of humans, computers and things. Brain informatics provides the key technique to implement the attempt by offering informatics-enabled brain studies and applications in the hyper world, which can be regarded as a brain big data cycle. This brain big data cycle is implemented by various processing, interpreting, and integrating multiple forms of brain big data obtained from atomic and molecular levels to the entire brain. The implementation involves using advanced neuroimaging technologies, including fMRI, PET, MEG, EEG, as well as other sources like eye-tracking and wearable, portable, micro and nano devices. Such brain big data will not only help scientists improve their understanding of human
thinking, learning, decision-making, emotion, memory, and social behavior, but also help cure disease, serve health-care, facilitate environmental control and sustainability, using human-centric information and computing technologies in the hyper world.
This special issue will present some of the best work being done worldwide to deal with fundamental issues, new challenges and potential applications of brain big data in the hyper world. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
- Hyper world and cyber individual model
- Future of brain big data and big data on the brain
- Assessing the brain's white matter with diffusion imaging
- A big brain vs. the main requirement for big data
- Big data in neuroimaging and connectome
- Heart to heart science
- Multimodal data analysis for depression early stage prediction and intervention
- Multi-granular computing for brain big data
- Big data analytics and interactive knowledge discovery with respect to brain cognition and mental health
- Big data policy for life and brain sciences and its implications to future research
All manuscripts must be in English. The page limit is 11 pages for each paper (210x279mm in Springer Journal Paper Style).  Manuscripts submitted for publication are reviewed by at least three peer reviewers, according to the usual policies of the BRIN Journal.
