The human face brings with its appearance and shape a number of clues enabling the extraction of information about person identity, gender, age, ethnicity, health, emotional state and physical wellness, to name but a few. Face recognition has a critical role in biometric systems and is attractive for numerous applications including visual surveillance and security, medical imaging, and affective computing. Though there has been a great deal of progress in face detection and recognition in the last few years, many problems remain unsolved. Research on face detection must confront with many challenging problems, especially when dealing with outdoor illumination, pose variation with large rotation angles, low image quality, low resolution, occlusion, and background changes in complex real-life scenes. Before one claims that the facial image processing/analysis system is reliable, rigorous testing and verification on real-world datasets must be performed, including databases for face analysis and tracking in digital video. Thus, vigorous research is needed to solve such outstanding challenging problems and propose advanced solutions and systems for emerging applications of facial image processing and analysis.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Face and feature detection
- Pre-processing methods
- New sensors or data sources
- Data set and evaluation
- Machine learning and deep learning
- Applications of face recognition

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.
