Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

From analog to digital, signal processing is present in almost all domains where it is used to convert and transform data. Signal processing algorithms and techniques allow us to analyze and transform all types of data, such as audio, image, and video. The amount and diversity of data created and consumed is increasing quite quickly. Therefore, new algorithms are being proposed to deal with new data.

Signal processing is mostly digital and executed in software using a generic or graphics processor. With the utilization of more complex and computationally demanding algorithms, more powerful multi-core processors are being used. On the other hand, more computationally efficient solutions are being obtained by using dedicated hardware designed with application-specific integrated circuits or field-programmable gate arrays.

Signal processing is applied in many different applications: image processing, audio processing, speech recognition and synthesis, RADAR and LIDAR processing, model analysis, medical data analysis, weather forecasting, image classification, object detection, image segmentation, etc.

This Special Issue aims to collect studies on recent advances in signal processing and its applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Signal processing algorithms for image, data, and audio;
  • Algorithms for LIDAR processing;
  • Machine learning algorithms for signal processing;
  • Signal processing with deep learning;
  • New architectures for signal processing;
  • Signal processing architectures in FPGA and ASIC;
  • Algorithms for speech synthesis and translation;
  • Signal processing on the edge;
  • Signal processing on devices for the Internet of Things;
  • New applications from novel signal processing algorithms;
  • Other related topics.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
