Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
We are planning to launch a new Special Issue titled "Digital Underwater Imaging". Although imaging in air has matured in recent decades, underwater optical data processing still poses serious challenges due to limited visibility, poor illumination, absence of reliable positioning information, and distortions of various natures.
We would like to focus this Special Issue on the 3D reconstruction and semantic segmentation of underwater scenes. However, this theme does not limit the scope of the Special Issue. Papers that cover other important aspects of underwater imaging, such as remote sensing with trichromatic cameras, recovery of color information, corrections for refraction-related distortions, and multispectral imagers and lasers are also welcome.
I hope that you can share your expertise and research results with the underwater imaging community by submitting an article to our Special Issue.

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. Remote Sensing 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 2400 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.
