Call for papers: "Recent Advances and Emerging Topics in Computer Vision Methods and Image Analytics"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Computational Vision and Robotics.

Computer vision methods and image analytics have steadily progressed over the last few decades and taken the lead in showing the significance of vision technology in our life. There is growing interest in theoretical aspects of image and video formation, modelling, preprocessing, recognition, motion detection, analysis, etc. The accumulation of big data sets is another serious challenge for established vision and imaging techniques.

Computer vision techniques and image analytics can be applied in a wide range of domains including healthcare, retail, transport, smart homes, biometrics, safety and security. The use of embedded imaging system in mobile devices has created a new domain of applications for imaging and vision techniques. The new requirement of computer vision methods and image analytics is to have high computing capabilities at limited resources and with real-time constraints.

This special issue will provide a forum to consolidate a broader range of the current research achievements and future trends in developing new theories, algorithms, architectures and applications of computer vision methods and image and video analytics.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Computational Vision & Robotics (ICCVR) 2014, but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

  • Image denoising and deblurring
  • Image enhancement
  • Super-resolution
  • Multispectral imaging
  • Image interpolation
  • Image matching
  • Image fusion
