Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Computational Color Imaging involves the analysis, processing and understanding of color images by computers. It plays a pivotal role in various fields, ranging from environmental monitoring to medical diagnostics, and offers enhanced capabilities for analyzing and understanding visual data. It also plays a pivotal role in Computer Vision and Object recognition.

This Special Issue aims to showcase research that bridges the gap between advanced color image processing techniques and the practical challenges of computer vision, highlighting innovative approaches and AI-driven applications. We encourage submissions that not only present novel research, but also demonstrate the practical implications and potential applications of color features in image processing and computer vision.

We invite contributions that explore novel methodologies, algorithms, and applications in areas including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Color image enhancement and restoration
  • Color perception and color spaces
  • Color and material appearance and reproduction
  • Color image segmentation and classification
  • Multispectral and hyperspectral imaging
  • Computational photography and image rendering
  • Color image quality assessment
  • Color-based computer vision and image understanding
  • Machine learning for color image analysis
  • Color in computer graphics and computer vision
  • Color in cultural heritage and art preservation
  • Advances in color sensor technology and light detection
  • High dynamic range and color processing in 3D Imaging
  • Color imaging applications in scientific research
  • Color image applications in fields such as medical imaging, remote sensing, and more

We also welcome extended papers from the Computational Color Imaging Workshop (CCIW), to be held in September 2024 in Milano, Italy.

Created in 2007, the Computational Color Imaging Workshop (CCIW) is a premier international forum on color images and advanced types of images (spectral, 3D, etc.), including their acquisition, processing, rendering, quality assessment, analysis, and reproduction. The workshop also addresses color vision and material appearance. Applications of color imaging in many fields are included, such as computer vision, health and natural sciences, art and design, video and display, printing and manufacturing, remote sensing and natural sciences.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Journal of Imaging 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 1800 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.
