The special issue will start with a general introduction to computer modeling & simulation with some basic mathematics that will be tailored to the needs of the other papers in the issue. This will be followed by papers describing technological advances that have made it to the clinical practice, grouped per organ system (cardio, liver, skin etc), paying special attention to the assumptions, limitations and the basic mechanisms underlying the models.
