Soft Computing is an emerging field that consists of complementary elements of fuzzy logic, neural computing, evolutionary computation, machine learning and probabilistic reasoning. Due to their strong learning and cognitive ability and good tolerance of uncertainty and imprecision, soft computing techniques have found wide applications. Needless to say, image processing is one of these applications.

The International Journal of Signal Processing, (IJSP) is planning to publish a special issue on Soft Computing in Image Processing: Techniques & Systems. We invite the submission of full length and short correspondence papers that will detail the state-of-the-art and trends in soft computing in image processing. Topics include but are not limited to:
Soft computing algorithms for denoising and restoration
Soft computing techniques for pattern recognition
Soft computing algorithms for digital image processing, coding and encryption
Soft computing in computer vision
Soft computing algorithms for video content-based indexing and retrieval
Soft multimedia data analysis and visualization: texture, color, content, etc.
Decision fusing with fuzzy logic
Soft-Computing algorithms for watermarking
Fuzzy wavelets
Fuzzy mathematical morphology
Applications, e.g. in visual surveillance, face recognition, medical imaging, ...
This special issue will gather the latest research and development of soft computing in image processing and address the most current issues and challenges. It will include the latest research results and efforts at different levels including novel algorithm designs, theoretical performance analysis, performance and capability demonstration via simulation and experimental results, robust algorithms under nonideal environmental and system conditions, and real-time implementation of advanced algorithms. Prospective papers should be unpublished and present novel, fundamental research offering innovative contributions either from a methodological or an application perspective.

The special issue will consist of peer-reviewed original contributions and peer-reviewed invited contributions of an explanatory/review type. We expect to have a fast reviewing process and publish the special issue less than one year after the deadline for submitting papers (see below).

Manuscripts that are commercial in nature will not be considered. Manuscripts are reviewed and refereed. Those accepted for publication are edited for conformance to the journal's style. A submitted paper may be either theoretical or experimental; research surveys will also be considered.

For additional information on submissions and manuscript styles please check the web site Authors should follow the IJSP manuscript format described at the journal site. Authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript by email to one of the guest editors (see below for contact details), according to the following timetable:
Manuscript Due: June 1, 2004
Acceptance Notification: November 30, 2004
Final Manuscript Due: December 31, 2004
Publication Date: 1st Quarter, 2005
If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to contact either of the guest editors. To be a reviewer for this special issue please contact either of the guest editor by email with a list of topic areas you would be interested in reviewing. All submissions will be refereed following the normal practices of the journal.
