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
