Special Issue "Convolutional Neural Network Design and Hardware Implementation for Real-Time Vision Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2019.
Processing speed is critical for many visual computing tasks. Many computer vision algorithms generate accurate results, but run too slowly to produce results in real time. On the other hand, some algorithms process at camera frame rates, but with reduced accuracy, a more useful combination for real-time applications. Moreover, FPGAs are increasing in capacity and decreasing in power consumption, making them more attractive for embedded applications, such as onboard vision and control for unmanned vehicles. Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) offer state-of-the-art accuracy for many computer vision tasks. Their capabilities are generalizable to many different real-world applications. Real-world applications often require real-time responsiveness from the vision system. This Special Issue focuses on CNNs and their application to real-time computer vision tasks.
General topics covered in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
- FPGA-based hardware acceleration of vision algorithms;
- GPU-based acceleration of vision algorithms;
- Embedded vision sensors for applications that require real-time performance;
- CNN architecture optimizations for real-time performance;
- CNN acceleration through approximate computing;
- GPU-based implementations for real-time CNN performance;
- FPGA-based implementations for real-time CNN performance;
- Real-time CNN performance on resource limited systems;
- CNN applications that require real-time performance;
- Tradeoff analysis between speed and accuracy in CNNs.

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.
