Special Issue "Fuzzy Logic for Image Processing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2017)
The increasing availability of huge image collections in different application fields, such as medical diagnosis, remote sensing, transmission and encoding, machine/robot vision, video processing, microscopic imaging has pressed the need, in the last few last years, for the development of efficient techniques capable of managing/processing large collection of image data, and which are suitable for analysis, indexing and retrieval of image data.
Classical image processing methods often face great difficulties while dealing with images containing noise and distortions. Under such conditions, fuzzy logic techniques turn out to be effective to address challenging real-world image processing problems. The main objective of this Special Issue is to show the potential of fuzzy techniques in challenging applications involving tasks related to understand, represent, and process digital images.
This Special Issue will focus on the exploration of the fundamental roles, as well as practical impacts of fuzzy techniques, in the field of image processing. Prospective authors are invited to submit previously unpublished works in these areas. Possible topics include (but are not limited to) applications of fuzzy logic in image processing, leading to advanced fuzzy techniques for:
- Low-medium level image processing: Contrast enhancement, edge detection, noise detection and removal, segmentation, geometric measurement, and clustering of image data
- High-level image/scene analysis: Pattern recognition and scene description, modeling of image data, object matching, image annotation, and image retrieval
- Real-world applications, such as medical/biological image segmentation, face recognition, industrial product inspection, automated surveillance, finger print and biometric security systems.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 850 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
