Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Spectral imaging, the combination of imaging and spectroscopy, has been used for more than five decades in application domains such as agriculture, environmental sciences, astronomy, health and cultural heritage. With the advent of intelligent vision systems and the decrease in hardware cost, multi-/hyper-spectral technologies have become increasingly affordable and practical. In particular, data-driven models have allowed substantial improvements in compressed sensing, super-resolution and pixel labeling, to name only a few. However, these models suffer from the high cost of ground truth data (labels), and, particularly in the case of deep neural networks, from the “black box” effect. In other words, data-driven models can be costly and difficult to interpret.

In an effort to further advance multi/hyperspectral imaging technologies towards more affordability, robustness and practicality, we are calling for original research contributions on topics such as (but not limited to): compressed sensing, representation learning, classification, dimensionality reduction, visualization, color-spectral imaging, explainable AI, applications (remote sensing, food, cultural heritage, bio-medicine, security, etc.). Review papers and use cases are also welcome.

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) 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.
