    The papers in this special section focus on federal learning applications for the Internet of Medical Things. Due to to the advancements in Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), wearable devices, remote monitoring of patients is possible like never before. Machine learning and deep learning techniques help the doctors immensely in remotely diagnosing the patients by learning the patterns from the data generated through these devices [1]. The main problem with traditional machine learning (ML)/deep learning (DL) models is that the data from the individual devices, sensors, wearables of patients have to be transferred to the central servers to train the data using the ML/DL models. Due to the sensitive nature of the healthcare data, the aforementioned approach of transferring the patients’ data to the central servers may create serious security and privacy issues.
