In the last few years, the technologies related to imaging, video processing, computer graphics, 3D modelling and multimedia have been greatly employed in field of cultural heritage preservation and exploitation. Indeed, cultural artifacts need to be captured, analyzed, restored, as well as classified, recognized, and rendered. The continuous development of these technologies leads researchers to propose new methodologies and applications in this field. Moreover, recent image-processing and machine learning algorithms give the opportunity to process datasets of artifacts, in order to extract information and develop new analysis procedures.
The intent of this Special Issue is two-fold: Firstly, present novel applications of the modern devices for data acquisition and visualization (e.g., depth sensors, 3D scanners, VR glasses, robots, etc.); and, secondly, propose new methodologies for large dataset processing using modern pattern recognition and machine learning approaches (e.g., deep learning, hypergraph learning, etc.).
The proposed Special Issue, named “New Trends in Image Processing for Cultural Heritage”, includes (but it is not limited) the following topics:
- 3D Reconstruction
- 3D Models processing
- Augmented and Virtual Reality applications
- Robotic applications
- RGBD Analysis
- Serious Game for Cultural Heritage
- Advanced Image enhancement and denoising
- Advanced Image classification and retrieval
- Semantic segmentation
- Virtual restoration
- Image processing

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.
