Appel à communications - JEI Special Section on Image Processing for Cultural Heritage.
Due to technological developments, images have become very common data, present and accessible through many different media (TV, camera, smartphone, tablet, and so on). Consequently, it is more and more common for the scientific community to use images to characterize materials or objects under study at different scales. Heritage is one of the emerging domains that exploit these data. The introduction of the methods developed in the image-processing domain offers new possibilities to the interdisciplinary cultural heritage world.
This Special Section on Image Processing for Cultural Heritage aims to present studies that exploit images as principal data to solve heritage problems. Topics of this special section may include:
Digitizing Europe's cultural heritage is an active part of the European Union agenda, and the EU has funded several projects on the topic in the last few years (see complete list here: https://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/en/digital-culture). Research groups from Europe participating in these projects are invited to submit papers. We also welcome research groups from various countries to submit work on topics of image processing related to heritage, and specialists in cultural heritage should present their image-processing problems.
