Projection-Based Transforms

Papers are solicited for a Special Issue of Image and Vision Computing which address the subject of Projection-Based Transforms. A large amount of work has been carried out on the detection and recognition of objects in images using projection-based transforms such as Radon and Hough transforms. Special algorithms, techniques, and implementations have been developed to reduce the execution times of such algorithms and to increase the accuracy of the detection and recognition process. The field has become a mature subject and is of high relevance to practical implementations in areas such as medical imaging, surveillance, agriculture and factory automation.

Papers describing novel contributions which describe the subject of Projection-Based Transforms are invited for the Special Issue. Both theoretical and experimental contributions from academia and industry are welcome. The goal of the Special Issue is to gather significant research results that explore such algorithms and techniques. It is intended to interpret the subject rather widely, to avoid excluding important cognate topics such as geometric invariance and sampling strategies. The Special Issue will also identify the future directions of research in this field. Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Efficient projection-based transforms
  • Structural indexing
  • Clustering techniques
  • Geometric grouping
  • Analysis of peak detection accuracy
  • Evidence-based recognition
  • Probabilistic peaking
  • Multiprocessor implementations
Five copies of complete manuscripts (not to exceed 30 double-spaced pages) should be sent to either of the guest editors by the deadline given below. Authors should follow the author's guidelines for paper submission of Image and Vision computing.
