Elsevier Journal Signal Processing: Image Communication


Recent developments in technologies that make large scale use of image  
and video data, such as the internet, multimedia systems, digital TV,  
digital cinema, and mobile/wireless devices have increased the need  
for efficient processing, storage and transmission of visual  
information. It is now widely acknowledged that such technologies
could benefit further by incorporating ongoing research on the  
biologically inspired computational models and especially the Human  
Visual System (HVS) modeling.  Indeed, in many applications, the human  
observer plays a prominent role in the decision tasks such as  
diagnosis, recognition and evaluation based on visual assessment of
images. Recent years have witnessed an increasing interest in  
biologically inspired image and video processing and analysis  

The objective of this Special Issue is to publish high-quality  
articles on a broad array of applied and theoretical subjects on  
biologically inspired approaches for Visual Information Processing and  
analysis. This special issue will cover the recent advances in HVS  
inspired techniques for image and video processing with applications to
multimedia, visual pattern recognition, surveillance, visual  
information coding and security and other related subjects. This call  
for papers invites also articles covering all aspects related to  
biologically inspired vision architectures and their hardware  
implementation for real-time image and video processing.

Topics of particular interest to this special issue include, but are  
not limited to:
3D Video Coding and Analysis 					Video Segmentation and Analysis
Image and Video Quality Assessment 				Visual Tracking
Image and Video Enhancement 					Image databases and indexing
Perceptual Hashing Video 						Surveillance and Biometrics
Multi-View Coding 								Perceptual Digital Watermarking
Perceptual Image & Video Retrieval 				Perceptual Coding
Multimedia Communication 						Multi-View Processing
