Special Issue "Convolutional Neural Networks and Vision Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2021.
Interests: object recognition, hardware friendly computer vision algorithms, real-time robotic vision applications
Processing speed is critical for visual inspection automation and mobile visual computing applications. Many powerful and sophisticated computer vision algorithms generate accurate results but require high computational power or resources and are not entirely suitable for real-time vision applications. On the other hand, there are vision algorithms and convolutional neural networks that perform at camera frame rates but with moderately reduced accuracy, which is arguably more applicable for real-time vision applications. This special issue is for research related to the design, optimization, and implementation of machine learning-based vision algorithms or convolutional neural networks that are suitable for real-time vision applications.
General topics covered in this special issue include, but are not limited to:
- Optimization of software-based vision algorithms
- CNN architecture optimizations for real-time performance
- CNN acceleration through approximate computing
- CNN applications that require real-time performance
- Tradeoff analysis between speed and accuracy in CNN
- GPU-based implementations for real-time CNN performance
- FPGA-based implementations for real-time CNN performance
- Embedded vision systems for applications that require real-time performance
- Machine vision applications that require real-time performance

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 1500 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.
