Call for Book Chapters
Book titled:
Advances in Soft Computing and Machine Learning in Image Processing

To be published by Intelligent Systems Reference Library by Springer

Nowadays the use of digital images and videos has been extended to different fields as surveillance, manufacturing, medicine, agriculture, etc. They are easy to obtain from various environments, and it is necessary to recognize the objects contained in the scenes. In order to achieve this goal, several computational approaches have been developed. However, considering the technological advances problems as image size, noise, illumination and the ones proper from the scenes, it is necessary to develop new methodologies and improve the classical algorithms. On the other hand, a tendency is that the computer vision and image processing systems should be able to automatic extract the desired features for a particular task. Computational Intelligence (CI) approaches are alternative solutions to for automatic computer vision and image processing systems; they include the use of tools as machine learning and soft computing. Researchers from all over the world are working hard creating new algorithms that combine the methods provided by computational intelligence to solve the problems of image processing and computer vision.
This Book aims to provide a collection of high quality research works that address broad challenges in both theoretical and application aspects of soft computing and machine leering in image processing and computer vision. We invite colleagues to contribute original book chapters that will stimulate the continuing effort on the application of CI approaches to solve image-processing problems and computer vision problems.
We invite all researchers and practitioners who are developing algorithms, systems, and applications, to share their results, ideas, and experiences. Besides the main topic covering all related Soft Computing and Machine Learning in Image Processing
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

 Machine Learning
 Computer vision
 Soft Computing
 Image processing
 Evolutionary Computation Algorithms
 Swarm Optimization
 Image thresholding
 Multilevel segmentation
 Object recognition
 Coding and compression
 Sampling and interpolation
 Quantization and halftoning
 Quality assessment
 Filtering and enhancement
 Morphology
 Edge detection and segmentation
 Feature extraction
 Quantum Image Processing
 Applications
Chapter Submission
