Computer Vision for the Creative Industriesclick here for more information (downloadable pdf)

This Special Issue highlights the contribution of the broad field of computer vision and video processing to the creative industries: in particular, movie content creation and visual applications on consumer devices. We assess just how far computer vision has penetrated these industries and to what extent has theory survived the clash with reality.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Image and Video Processing for Postproduction applications
  • Texture synthesis in practice
  • 3D/AR/VR Graphics for on screen overlays in broadcast and film production
  • Motion estimation and object tracking
  • On set model building from heterogeneous video
  • Point cloud compression and manipulation
  • HDR Video Processing
  • Deep learning in automated postproduction
  • Computer Vision in reduced capacity environments
  • Review articles on the adoption of computer vision and video processing research in consumer and professional broadcast and film applications

Local Image Descriptors in Computer Visionclick here for more information (downloadable pdf)

This Special Issue will provide the computer vision community with the opportunity to systematically collect and share the latest developments and trends on this active research field. It will also offer scientists the chance to propose original ideas and uncommon approaches, out of the mainstream ones, and open to unexplored research directions.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent advances in local image detector and descriptor design
  • Handcrafted vs deep and general data-driven local descriptors
  • Time and storage efficient descriptor solutions
  • Local image descriptors for large-scale scenarios
  • Enhanced matching with statistical and spatial constraints
  • Uncommon and innovative applications of local descriptors
  • Deep local descriptors interpretation and visualization
  • Descriptor evaluation, new benchmark protocols and datasets
