Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 2018 IEEE International Conference on Imaging Systems and Techniques is the premier forum for the presentation of technological advances and research results and will take place jointly with the IEEE International School of Imaging in Kraków, Poland, 16–18 October, 2018 http://ist2018.ieee-ims.org/. Selected original and invited research works presented at the conference will be organized into this Special Issue of Sensors, “Selected Papers from the 2018 IEEE International Conference on Imaging Systems and Techniques (IST 2018)”.

The conference is sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), which is the world’s largest professional association, with nearly 500,000 members, dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefits of humanity.

The scope of the IST 2018 includes, but is not limited to:

  1. Exploring, advancing, and generating new knowledge on multifaceted imaging design principles, systems, and techniques, with applications in medical imaging, genomics and artificial intelligence, aimed at the exploring of novel pathophysiology and metabolic mechanisms and measuring therapeutic efficacy
  2. Machine learning and data mining solutions utilizing medical imaging to assist clinicians and healthcare providers to bring big data to personalized medicine
  3. Imaging and cognitive machine vision systems, imaging informatics, robotic vision systems, with applications in Industry 4.0, healthcare, autonomous driving and navigation, Internet of Things (IoT), and space and resource exploration
  4. Emerging imaging trends that would lead ultimately to novel systems and technologies, standards and metrology, and systems with unsurpassable image quality, scalability, and miniaturization capabilities

The 2018 IEEE International Conference on Imaging Systems and Technique aims to provide a forum for prestigious specialists and scholars to share their experiences and demonstrate frontier research results in all respects of imaging technologies, systems and techniques.

Engineers, and scientists from industry, government, academia, and healthcare who want to report novel scientific results, technological and clinical advances in the multidisciplinary areas of imaging systems, are invited to attend the IST Conference and interact with major worldwide experts.

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 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 1800 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.
