====================================================================== Call for Papers PATTER RECOGNITION LETTERS /Special Issue on Hierarchical Representations: New Results and Challenges for Image Analysis/ Submission period of articles May, 1st – 31st 2019 ====================================================================== Image representations based on hierarchical, scale-space models and other non-regular / irregular grids have become increasingly popular in image processing and computer vision over the past decades. Indeed, they allow a modeling of image contents at different (and complementary) levels of scales, resolutions and semantics. Methods based on such image representations have been able to tackle various complex challenges such as multi-scale image segmentation, image filtering, object detection, recognition, and more recently image characterization and understanding, potentially involving higher level of semantics. The proposed virtual special issue will consider extended and updated versions of papers published at the recent ICPRAI 2018 conference as well as submissions from anybody proposing innovative methods in the field of image representation with emphasis, but not restricted to computer vision and image processing, medical imaging, 2D and 3D images, multi-modality, remote sensing image analysis, image indexation and understanding. *Topics:* The main topics of this HIERARCHY virtual special issue include, but are not limited to: * image decomposition on the basis of frequency spaces (Fourier, wavelets, etc.) * hierarchies linked to the image space, mathematical morphology, connected operators * scale-space representations * non-regular / irregular grid image representations * multi-scale representation in computer-vision * evaluation of hierarchical image representations The aim of this special issue is to popularize the use of hierarchical methods in image processing and analysis. Indeed, although these methods have become very popular in computer vision over the last 20 years, their potential impact is largely underexploited in image processing and analysis. *Submission:* The review process will follow the standard PRLetters scheme. In particular, each paper will be reviewed by two referees. The referees will include the program committee members of the special session at ICPRAI 2018 on the same topic and other invited referees selected from the EES. This is an open call-for-papers from outside the ICPRAI 2018 conference, though participants of the virtual special session on hierarchical representations of images will be invited to submit an extended article of their contribution. These articles must include at least 30% of new contribution (theoretical or experimental results), with different figures and a different title than the one of the ICPRAI paper. The common content between the ICPRAI paper and the HIERARCHY article cannot be exactly the same. This virtual special issue also accepts totally new proposals; both types of submissions must respect the following guidelines. All submissions have to be prepared according to the Guide for Authors as published in the Journal Web Site at _http://www.elsevier.com/journals/pattern-recognition-letters/0167-8655/guide-for-authors_ The authors are invited to upload their article through http://ees.elsevier.com/prletters/ during the submission period (see previous section), by indicating the virtual special issue acronym (HIERARCHY). Their contribution should not have been published previously, or not be under revision for any other publication elsewhere. In the case of an extension of ICPRAI session, the original work must be attached, and a description of major changes must be provided. Guest editors will judge the suitability and scope of each contribution. All submitted papers will be reviewed according to the guidelines and standards of PRLetters. At least two (2) reviewers will be assigned, and 2 reviewing rounds can occur for each submitted article. The maximal length is 7 pages, except for articles requiring major revision and additional content by the reviewers, for which the maximal length can be extended to 8 pages. If an article still need major revision after the second round, it will be rejected. Only original, high-quality, technically sound articles and in-line with the PRLetters standard guidelines, will be considered for publication in this virtual special issue. Submissions will be judged by their contributions to the virtual special issue topics, clarity of presentation, potential impact to the field, and suitability to publication in an archival journal. *Guest Editors:* - Nicolas Passat _<nicolas.passat at univ-reims.fr>_ - Camille Kurtz _<camille.kurtz at parisdescartes.fr>_ - Antoine Vacavant _<antoine.vacavant at uca.fr>_
