Special Issue "Sensor Applications on Marine Recognition"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2020.
Interests: computer vision; AI; deep learning; pattern recognition; underwater technologies; embedded systems
The ocean, covering over 70% of our planet and reaching depths of nearly 11,000 meters, is the last largely unexplored environment on Earth. Since a vast majority of electromagnetic waves, including light, penetrate the ocean depths only in a very limited degree, sensing and exploring the immense ocean environment presents exceptional challenges. Despite great advances in the sensing technologies, there are still serious challenges in their successful applications in various domains of marine recognition. Hence, development of novel methods, joining modern sensing techniques operating with diverse signal types, is of primary interest for the research and marine industry.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide a platform for information exchange and knowledge sharing, as well as to gather the latest research achievements, in the broad subject of sensor applications on marine recognition viewed from both the science and industry corners.
Original submissions from all areas related to sensor applications on marine recognition are welcome. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following ones.
- Marine sensors technologies
- Marine recognition for biology
- Underwater search and exploration
- Sensing for autonomous underwater drones
- Underwater drones navigation
- Deep learning and AI methods in marine recognition
- Deep-sea multispectral and hyperspectral sensing
- Computer vision and image processing methods for marine recognition
- Automated detection, classification, and segmentation of marine objects
- Underwater image and video restoration methods
- Tensor based methods for multidimensional signal processing
- Deep-sea optical imaging technologies
- Acoustic imaging in marine recognition
- Recognition from sidescan and multibeam sonars
- Restoration and filtering of the sidescan and multibeam sonar signals
- Seismic monitoring and imaging
- Multichannel seismic technologies
- Data management, annotations, access, visualization, and sharing
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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
