Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bioinspired computer vision approaches usually aim to replicate the results obtained by standard algorithms, by using neuromorphic paradigms. The performance obtained by bioinspired approaches is often lower than that of standard algorithms, both in terms of reliability of the results and in terms of speed. Today, there are many computer vision algorithms that are successfully applied in several fields, such as robotics, autonomous navigation, video surveillance, facial recognition, and, more recently, augmented reality. On the other hand, it is well known that biological vision systems are able to extract and analyze the information that is contained in complex, cluttered, and noisy environments, in order to solve vital tasks, such as navigating and recognizing shapes and persons, finding food, or escaping from danger. Biological visual systems are able to perform these tasks with both high sensitivity and strong reliability. Moreover, they are able to solve challenging computational problems, such as scene segmentation, local and global optical flow computation, 3D perception or extracting the meaning of complex objects or movements, in an efficient and quick manner.

The main aim of this Special Issue is to seek high-quality submissions that present and discuss the recent achievements in the development of bioinspired models for solving vision tasks, especially focusing on real-world complex situations and addressing modern benchmarking datasets.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Bioinspired computer vision for motion and stereo analysis
  • Bioinspired computer vision for scene understanding
  • Bioinspired computer vision for face, gesture, and shape recognition
  • Bioinspired computer vision for the real world: Robustness, learning, adaptability, self-assessment, and failure recovery
  • Performance evaluation of bioinspired approaches
  • Bioinspired computer vision for surveillance and security applications
  • Bioinspired computer vision for virtual and augmented reality applications
  • Hardware and high-performance implementations of bioinspired approaches
  • Bioinspired computer vision and deep learning

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 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 1400 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.
