Computational Imaging

Special Issue Web Banner

The Science Partner Journal (SPJ) Intelligent Computing is now seeking submissions for a special issue, Computational Imaging.


Imaging, be it in optics, acoustics, RF, X-ray, THz, NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance), etc., has witnessed tremendous progress in the last decades, driven not only by technical advances (new detectors, modulators, sources), but also by the revolution in signal processing and machine learning of the last two decades, from compressive sensing, phase-retrieval methods, to deep learning, to cite just a few. The field of “computational imaging” has emerged in the last 10 years as a very powerful paradigm, where advanced algorithms and hardware worked in synchrony to provide revolutionary advances in imaging, and strongly impacted many fields, including optical microscopy, astronomy, X-ray ptychography, MRI, radar, biology and medicine, seismology, etc.   

The use of these modern computational methods has strongly improved imaging performance, be it in terms of resolution, signal, or speed. It has also sometimes simplified hardware tremendously by moving the burden of imaging to the algorithmic side. Finally, it has allowed imaging in scenarios that were considered impossible, for instance, imaging in complex media, around corner, or passive imaging. 

This special issue aims at providing a comprehensive panorama of the more modern developments in this very active field, comprising both original research articles and reviews by world-renowned experts in the field. 

In this special issue of Intelligent Computing, a Science Partner Journal (SPJ), both Research Articles and Review Articles are solicited. More detailed submission instructions, e.g., manuscript format and submission guidance, are provided on the “For Authors” page

Note that the exceptional merits and advantages of this special issue are: very quick publication (less than 2 months after submission, if acceptable), Open Access to widely global readers via various prestigious AAAS & SPJ-enabled pipelines, and no APCs (article processing charges) until 2025.
