Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Multifractal descriptors are increasingly being used as texture features in various imaging and machine learning applications. Traditional generalizations of fractal systems based on a range of singularity exponents and multifractal spectrum have now found their way into the domain of image analysis as techniques for representing intensity (or color) variations around pixel neighborhoods. The singularity spectrum of intensity variations in an image has been shown to contain highly useful information on subtle texture characteristics needed for effective identification and classification of regions of interest. Several new texture feature extraction methods based on multifractal analysis have been recently reported in the field of medical image processing. These include algorithms for microcalcification detection in mammograms, analysis of tissue structures in histopathological images, emphysema classification in CT images, feature enhancement in ultrasound videos, and mammographic breast density estimation.

This Special Issue aims to promote further research into the field of texture analysis and classification using multifractal measures and descriptors, and provides a forum for publishing original research papers on their applications in image analysis.

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 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 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.
