Special Issue "AI Approaches to Biological Image Analysis"
A special issue of Journal of Imaging (ISSN 2313-433X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018)

Recent machine learning and AI (artificial intelligence)-based approaches have had remarkable impact on the image analysis field, and we can expect such successes to spread to specific disciplines as the techniques are applied to specific domains. In this Special Issue, we will present some recent advances and applications within the field of bioimage analysis. We are particularly interested in exploring application of machine and deep learning approaches to the analysis of biological images (excluding medical images). One particular area where this has seen recent application is plant and crop phenotyping, but we expect to see advances in phenotyping success across the discipline.
We welcome submissions in this area, including, but not limited to:
- Novel application of deep or machine learning to bioimaging problems
- Application of such approaches to improve plant and crop phenotyping
- Novel application within the wider biological imaging field, including microscope imaging, hyperspectral imaging, and 3D/4D imaging.

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. 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 350 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.
