[visionlist] Special Session about Color Image Processing in Journal of Imaging

To whom it may concern,

I have been appointed Guest Editor for the Journal of Imaging for a Special Session about Color Image Processing. In order to spread the information as much as possible, I’d like to post the following call for paper on Visionlist.

Thanks in advance to tell me if that is possible.

Best regards,

Edoardo Provenzi.

Invitation to Contribute to the Special Issue “Color Image Processing”

We are organizing a Special Issue that may be of interest to you. As Guest Editor, I cordially invite you to submit a manuscript free of charge for consideration and possible publication in a Special Issue on *Color Image Processing* to be published in the *Journal of Imaging* (http://ift.tt/1MaenXW), an open access journal on all interdisciplinary aspects of imaging research—covering image acquisition, processing and understanding—published quarterly online by MDPI. 

Color is one of the most important and fascinating attributes of the natural environment. Research about color is becoming more and more prevalent in image processing and computer vision, even if many models are still designed for grayscale pictures and their extension to color images is not a trivial task. In fact, the intrinsic multidisciplinary character of color makes it difficult to model, both from a perceptual and a computational or mathematical level.

The intent of this Special Issue is to provide a framework where scientists in several different disciplines related to color can find a place to illustrate their ideas and results.

This Special Issue is primarily focused on the following topics, however we encourage all submissions related to color in imaging:

Computational color vision models

Perceptually-inspired color image and video processing

Variational and patch-based techniques applied to color images

Color data compression and encoding

Color image/video indexing and retrieval

Color enhancement

Color constancy and saliency

Color texture

Color image and video watermarking

Color image/video quality assessment

Multispectral imaging

Geometry of color spaces

Interactions between color science and other disciplines such as art, medicine, psychology, and so on

Color imaging and technology for material appearance

Color and contrast measures

Statistics of natural images in color

High dynamic range imaging in color

The deadline for manuscript submission is *31 May 2017* (but an extension can be granted, if necessary). For more details please visit the website:


Since I am personally inviting you, your paper will be published free of charge if accepted after peer review. We hope you find this topic of interest and choose to publish your work in the Journal of Imaging. If you could let us know within a week or so, it would greatly help the management of the Special Issue.

We would also appreciate if you could forward this to your team members and colleagues who may also be interested in the topic. 

Thank you for your consideration and please contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.
