Advances in Low-Level Image representations for processing and analysis

The representation of visual information present at specific locations in the image is a fundamental task in image processing analysis. Having a suitable representation for visual features enables reasoning with the end goal of helping object categorization, image region classification, image segmentation and restoration among others. Several low-level image representation have proven their benefits, one can quote wavelets, Bag Of Words, sparse representations, Local Binary Patterns, etc. The importance of such image representation is now prevalent in image processing and analysis. The purpose of this special issue is to select the best papers of ICISP 2014 on this specific topic to timely address the challenges in low-level image representation for solving challenging applications.

The provisional calendar for the issue is:
