The emerging applications of image retrieval and recognition technology (IRRT) in smart cities include smart healthcare, smart energy, smart transportation, smart environment, smart safety and smart education. In smart healthcare, IRRT could help to identify a given case based on similar past cases found in the image archive. In smart transportation, IRRT could help to recognize traffic patterns by investigating image sequences acquired in real time. In a smart environment, IRRT could help to predict weather information and hazardous conditions. In smart safety, IRRT could help to predict natural disasters. In smart education, IRRT could help to make new discoveries using high-quality digital images taken from different research fields.
However, there are still challenges that need to be addressed to accelerate the development of these emerging applications. Firstly, the current techniques for feature extraction cannot adequately represent an image. More effective and robust feature-extraction methods are urgently required. Secondly, the image datasets are not large enough to meet the practical needs of the emerging applications in smart cities. Thirdly, current image retrieval and recognition technology cannot satisfy real-time requirements when the image datasets are large enough to meet the practical needs.
This Special Issue will focus on (but will not be limited to) the following topics:
- Image datasets for the emerging applications in smart cities;
- Effective features for image retrieval and recognition;
- Content-based image retrieval methods;
- Object recognition methods;
- Image-sensing devices and methods;
- Challenges of IRRT in smart cities;
- More emerging applications of IRRT in smart cities;
- Image-processing techniques that have the potential to be used in IRRT.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
