The last two decades of scientific development have been characterised
by major advances in biomedical technology. Genetic and biomolecular
engineering have progressed from science fiction to reality, and
diagnostic techniques such as CT, MRI, PET and SPECT, have evolved
from basic research to widespread use in hospitals. Major
breakthroughs have been made in the neural sciences, which have led to
a better understanding of biological neural structures, and the
engineering of more powerful and versatile artificial neural networks
and models.

As we enter the 21st century, these technologies are destined to reach
a level of development which will redefine many concepts and alter the
human perspective in an unprecedented way. Many of these developments
have been made possible through major advances in theoretical and
applied signal processing. Deterministic methods for analysis and
synthesis, such as those based on the short-time Fourier transform and
wavelets, have now reached maturation, and excellent progress has been
made using statistical methods such as Markov random fields,
regularization theory, and Kalman filtering, for noise suppression,
signal enhancement and optimisation.

The advent of new biomedical devices, sensors and families of generic
and dedicated processors have also proven to be essential enabling
technologies for practical applications of such increasingly complex

This Special Issue will review the current status of biomedical signal
processing, and address future techniques and applications.
