Special Issue on Artificial Intelligence and the Retina: Call for papers

To kickstart our new section devoted to artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning (DL), and machine learning (ML), our forthcoming special issue welcomes contributions on AI, DL and ML in relation to the retina, including, but not limited to:

  • The automatic extraction of information from novel and recent imaging modalities such as SD-OCT, OCTA, autofluorescence, and wide-field imaging.
  • The use of increasing amounts of available image data to identify patients at risk, predict response to treatment, and provide assistive tools to ophthalmologists.

 Dr. Anat Loewenstein and Prof. Emanuele Trucco, members of MAIO’s Editorial Board, will serve as guest editors for this issue.

The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2021. Journal guidelines and templates are available here.



Issue 2-3 is online!

We are very happy to inform you that Volume 2 Issue 3 of the Journal for Modeling in Ophthalmology has been published! We hope that you enjoy the extended abstracts highlighted from ARVO 2018, as well as the original articles included in this issue.        

Issue 2-2: ESB-ITA 2017 is out now!

This special issue of the Journal for Modeling in Ophthalmology collects, in the form of extended abstracts, contributions presented during the Thematic Symposium on Eye Biomechanics, organized within the VII Annual Meeting of the Italian Chapter of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB-ITA 2017) held on September 28-29, 2017 in Rome, Italy. 

You may see the Table of Contents and full issue here.

Issue 2-1 out now

This issue features highlights of research presented at ARVO as, to quote from the editorial by R.J. Braun:

 "At the ARVO annual meeting, the contributions that involve significant mathematical modeling of ocular physiology and procedures is on the increase. There has long been significant use of statistical methods for understanding data from a variety of uses such as in-vivo measurements and human trials of various sorts."

Furthermore, there is a very interesting study on Racial differences in the correlations between structural parameters and ocular blood flow in healthy eyes.

Two more articles will be added shortly, so do keep an eye out on the table of contents.

Special REVAMMAD issue

See the full issue here


The REVAMMAD project, part of the EU's Marie Curie Initial Training Network programme, is training a community of early career researchers in retinal vascular modelling, measurement (image processing and analysis) and retinal diagnosis.

Its aim is to create a community of interdisciplinary experts with the scientific and mathematical expertise to determine how physiological changes can affect the vasculature, the computer vision skills to detect measurements that are correlated to such changes, and the medical expertise to relate these to effective prognosis and diagnosis.

The second issue is out now!

Introducing the second issue of Journal for Modeling in Ophthalmology, we hope the reader will enjoy both clinical and theoretical insights on glaucoma in short papers that followed the International Congress on Advanced Technologies and Treatments for Glaucoma (ICATTG15) held in Milan (Italy), October 29-31, 2015


JMO is happy to announce that as of you the following ISSNs have been issued to the journal:

Online: 2468-3930

Print: 2468-3922


Open Access Policy

JMO is now fully open access (after registration) and doesn't ask for a publication fee when submitting an article either. This will be the case for at least the first volume, after which we will decide what the best model is to cover the costs of publication.

Focus and scope

While the rapid advance of imaging technologies in ophthalmology is making available a continually increasing number of data, the interpretation of such data is still very challenging and this hinders the advance in the understanding of ocular diseases and their treatment. Interdisciplinary approaches encompassing ophthalmology, physiology, mathematics and engineering have shown great capabilities in data analysis and interpretation for advancing basic and applied clinical sciences. The Journal for Modeling in Ophthalmology (JMO) was created in 2014 with the aim of providing a forum for interdisciplinary approaches integrating mathematical and computational modeling techniques to address open problems in ophthalmology. JMO welcomes articles that use modeling techniques to investigate questions related to the anatomy, physiology and function of the eye in health and disease.
