The care of critically ill patients in Intensive Care Units (ICUs) and during Anaesthesia is becoming increasingly complex. Clinicians are required to rapidly interpret and respond to a large number of clinical parameters, selecting appropriate treatment for the patient among many different options.

New measurement technology has increased the demand for improved information management, as has the need to monitor and assess the quality of care provided. Designing computerized systems to assist clinical staff in monitoring, diagnosis and therapy planning tasks is a challenging goal that requires the modeling of several levels of knowledge. The objective behind this special issue is to report on state-of-the art of theoretical and methodological developments for knowledge-based information management in intensive care and anesthesia.

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

 quality control and assessment
 clinical guidelines and protocols
 computational methods for intelligent data analysis
 effective and efficient real-time monitoring 
  (including intelligent alarming)
 decision support
 fusion of data from heterogeneous sources
 multi-agent design, distributed architecture
 uncertain and temporal reasoning
 knowledge acquisition from physiological data
 information visualization
 information retrieval


All manuscripts will be evaluated according to their originality, technical quality and clarity of presentation by at least two independent referees who are authorities in the field.

A manuscript should be about 20 pages excluding tables and figures but including the list of references. Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the journal "submission guidelines",which are available on request, and may also be retrieved from .

Three copies of a manuscript should be sent by surface mail before November 1st, 1999 to:
