EURASIP Journal of Image and Video Processing - special issue on colour

EURASIP Journal of Image and Video Processing

Special issue on Color in Image and Video Processing

Call for Papers

The perception of color has become of increasing importance in
application areas such as digital imaging, multimedia, visual
communications, computer vision, and consumer electronic industry. Color
is considered since the last decade as a key element for a number of
image and video processing systems. In particular, color plays a central
role in digital photography, consumer electronic devices such as digital
cameras, display applications, and printing applications, where color
management algorithms are considered as the foundation to transport
documents from one system to another. Color also plays a major important
role in pattern recognition and multimedia systems, where color-based
features and color segmentation have proven pertinent in detecting and
classifying objects in biomedical applications and general purpose
imagery. In particular, the fusion of color and edge-based features has
improved the performance of image segmentation and object recognition.
Color is of essential importance in compression-and transmission-based
applications of visual content. There are many TV and cinematographic
applications where accurate color communication is critical for
specialists such as golden eyes and professionals. The motivation of
this special issue is to fill the existing gap between academic
institutions and research laboratories which deal with the manipulation
of digital color images through the utilization of advanced signal
processing techniques and practitioners, and research laboratories which
deal with the perception of colors through computer vision and human vision.

This special issue will gather high-quality, original contributions on
all aspects of the application of color in pattern recognition, computer
vision, compression, indexing, multimedia content access, watermarking,
and security.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the theory and
applications of color in:

    * Computational color vision models
    * Color constancy and color transfer
    * Digital photography
    * Postproduction in cinema
    * Digital color camera image processing
    * Color reproduction (printing, scanning, displays)
    * High dynamic range color imaging and rendering
    * Color image understanding and analysis
    * Color data compression and encoding
    * Color image/video indexing and retrieval
    * Color image filtering and enhancement
    * Digital color image content protection
    * Color image/video quality assessment
    * Spatiotemporal color modeling
    * Multispectral imaging and analysis
    * Applications and future trends
