Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Modern development of affordable multimodal visual sensors has opened a whole world of new capabilities for imaging and image processing, in general. The sensor list may include visual, depth, infrared, thermal and multispectral sensors. All these sensors offer complimentary or overlapping information for the observed scene. Instead of analysing each modality image separately, Image Fusion is an image processing approach that aims at transferring useful information from all input images to a single composite one that is going to be analysed. Over the last two decades, Image Fusion has shown to be a very popular image processing task, attracting many researchers from many different fields, including medical imaging, satellite imaging, High-Dynamic Range (HDR) photography and surveillance imaging. Many modern methodologies have emerged, such as deep learning, parallel computations and compressive sensing, which have changed modern image processing and computer vision.

The aim of this Special Issue is to present and highlight the newest trends in Image Fusion. This may include, but is not be limited to:

  • Novel Image Fusion methodologies
  • Novel Image Fusion frameworks
  • Novel Image Fusion applications
  • Image Fusion based on deep learning
  • Multiple-modality Image Fusion
  • Multi-focus Image Fusion
  • Parallelization in Image Fusion
  • High-Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging
  • Real-time Image Fusion
  • Image Fusion for medical applications
  • Statistical Image Fusion
  • Image Fusion using compressive sensing

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. 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) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
