Re: [Reminder] Call for Book Chapters (Image Feature Detectors: Foundations, Innovations, and Applications)

opencv-users mailing list

 Dear colleagues,

Call for Book Chapters ( Deadline is now extended)

Book title: Image Feature Detectors
Foundations, Innovations, and Applications

Aim and Scope:
Detectors of image interest points such as corner detectors, blob detectors, and edge detectors go long way back in time. Feature detectors are new model for selecting interest points in an image. Those selected points can be invariant to scale, shift, and rotation. Feature detectors have a wide scope of applications in computer vision, pattern recognition, object recognition and tracking, image retrieval and matching, classification, and video processing and mining. The most popular feature detectors encompass: Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT), Speeded Up Robust Feature (SURF), and Features from Accelerated Segment Test (FAST). The principal aim of the book is to assemble an up-to-date body of knowledge documenting the major advances and key emerging trends in the feature detectors with respect to foundations, new directions, and applications. Moreover, studies which couple computational theories and algorithms with real-time applications of image features will be considered. The book covers a wide range of image features and feature detectors that find emerging application in biotechnology, industrial inspection, Internet applications, radar imaging, and object recognition. The book will cause a change to the literature on computer vision and machine learning. Besides, it is both a reference for engineers and scientists and a teaching resource by featuring survey chapters and research papers on image feature detectors. The book will provide comprehensive reviews of cutting–edge state-of-the-art algorithms, technologies, and applications, providing new insights into a range of fundamentally important topics in image processing, computer vision, and pattern recognition,which basically depend on image features and feature detectors. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Foundations and Innovations
    2D/3D feature detectors
    Invariant feature detectors
    Interest points detectors
    Affine region detectors
    Keypoints extraction
    Feature robustness
    Performance evaluation
    Image feature extraction
    Feature descriptors

    Biometrics imaginary
    Medical imaginary
    Image retrieval
    Video processing
    Object tracking
