Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
While automatic video surveillance has led to early successful research in tasks such as unattended baggage detection, loitering detection and virtual fences, new tasks are now being explored, such as violence detection, weapon detection, COVID-19-related applications, etc. Despite their complexity, such applications are being fueled by powerful deep learning methodologies. In most cases early detection is crucial to save lives and reduce risks. The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide an academic platform to publish high-quality research papers on the applications of innovative AI algorithms to video surveillance.
The potential topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Violence detection;
- Aggressive behavior detection;
- Fight detection;
- Vandalism detection;
- Firearm detection;
- Knife detection;
- Suspicious object detection;
- Motion detection;
- Object tracking;
- Scene analysis;
- COVID-19 applications (mask detection, thermal imaging, distancing, etc.);
- Combination with other modalities or sensors (i.e., sound, multispectral, 3D, etc.);
- Violence detection from mobile platforms (i.e., drones) or PTZ cameras;
- Real-life applications;

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. 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.
