Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The continuous growth of massive imaging data warehouses in various fields including geophysical research, NDT, medical diagnostics, and homeland security has led to the development of various techniques for content-based image retrieval; this has also been an active research field in the last twenty years. However, image retrieval under conditions of rapid accumulation of gigabytes of imaging data remains one of the main challenges in computer science. The analysis and retrieval of such massive imaging data warehouses has paved the way for various novel mathematical model developments, with applications ranging from radiology to UAV navigation. To this end, a variety of technological and mathematical questions need to be addressed, from data preprocessing, restoration, and multi-physics image sensing to features engineering and classification. 

The purpose of this Special Issue is to bring together applied mathematicians, software engineers, and experts from industry to meet and share their experiences in order to build future robust content-based image retrieval 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. Algorithms 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 1000 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.
