The IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems (TBioCAS) covers circuit and system design issues in a wide range of applications found in biomedical and life sciences, with a focus on designing ultra low power, mixed-signal, nanoscale electronics for these applications. Such activities require inter-disciplinary collaboration between scientists, engineers, medical researchers, and practitioners to solve complex real world problems. The IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems (TBioCAS) is addressing areas at the crossroads of Circuits and Systems and Life Sciences. The main emphasis is on microelectronic issues in a wide range of applications found in life sciences, physical sciences and engineering. The primary goal of the journal is to bridge the unique scientific and technical activities of the Circuits and Systems Society with the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society and other related societies, in application areas including such as:

  • Bioelectronics
  • Genomics and Proteomics
  • Implantable and wearable electronics
  • Neuromorphic Engineering
  • Biotechnology sensor circuits
  • Low power micro-and nanoelectronics
  • Smart sensors
  • Mixed-mode system-on-chip
  • Micropower imaging technology
  • Wireless technology in medicine
  • BioMEMS
  • Gene circuits and molecular circuits
  • Lab-on-chip Bio-nanotechnology
  • System biology
  • Organic Semiconductors
  • Electronics for brain science
  • Biomedical Engineering technology
  • Healthcare: Information technology

General, theoretical, and application-oriented papers in the abovementioned technical areas with a Circuits and Systems perspective are encouraged to publish in TBioCAS. The new journal is technical co-sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS),

TBioCAS is a quarterly publication with the first inaugural issue scheduled to appear in early 2007. Papers are submitted electronically through the journal web-site: To be eligible, a submission to TBioCAS must neither be published previously, nor be under review elsewhere.
