Wavelets are the result of collective efforts that recognized common threads between ideas and concepts that had been independently developed and investigated by distinct research communities. They provide a unifying framework for decomposing images, volumes, and time series data into their elementary constituents across scale. Although a relatively recent construct, wavelets have become the tool of choice for engineers, physicists, and mathematicians, leading to efficient solutions in time and space frequency analysis problems, as well as in a multitude of other applications. Wavelet methods of analysis and representation are having a significant impact on the science of signal and image processing. The application of wavelet theory concepts to this area has made possible significant advances in the usage of these imaging modalities to different applications.


This special issue aims at providing an opportunity for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in, and applications of wavelet in signal/image processing to meet and discuss the advances and latest developments in this exciting area. All papers submitted to this issue will be peer evaluated by two independent reviewers. The special issue will be oriented towards both theoretical and applications aspects of Wavelets in signal/ image processing

We emphasize that articles to appear in this special issue must satisfy the high standards of the GVIP international journal. Submissions will be evaluated on Novelty, Generality, Significance, Clarity and Support criteria. We invite the submission of full length papers to CVIP international journal special issue that will detail the state-of-the-art and trends in Wavelets in image processing. Example topics include but are not limited to:

Wavelet-based Steganology (watermarks, copyright protection, etc.)

Inverse problems

Image pyramids

Frames and over-complete representations

A Wavelet-based Analysis of Fractal Image Compression

Wavelet-based noise reduction and restoration
