Special Issue "Entropy in Image Analysis"
A special issue of Entropy (ISSN 1099-4300).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2019)
Image analysis is a fundamental task for extracting information from images acquired across a range of different devices. This analysis often needs numerical and analytical methods which are highly sophisticated, in particular for those applications in medicine, security, and remote sensing, where the results of the processing may consist of data of vital importance.
As being involved in numerous applications requiring reliable quantitative results, the image analysis has produced a large number of approaches and algorithms, sometimes limited to specific functions in a small range of tasks, sometimes generic enough to be applied to a wide range of tasks. In this framework, a key role can be played by the entropy, in the form of the Shannon entropy or in the form of a generalized entropy, used directly in the processing methods or in the evaluation of the results, to maximize the success of a final decision support system.
Since the active research in image processing is still engaged in the search of methods that are truly comparable to the abilities of human vision capabilities, I solicit your contribution to this Special Issue of the Journal, devoted to the use of entropy in extracting information from images, and in the decision processes related to the image analyses.

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. Entropy 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 1600 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.
