Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Symmetry is a fundamental concept in image processing that has been widely studied in recent years due to its potential applications in various fields. It has been used for image recognition, detection, and analysis, as well as for disease diagnosis and treatment planning in medical image processing. Thus, the study of symmetry in image processing is an active research area of crucial importance that requires further attention and investigations.  

This Special Issue, ‘Symmetry in Image Processing: Novel Topics and Advancements’ aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from various disciplines to share their latest findings and developments in the field of symmetry as well as it applications in image analysis. We are particularly interested in submissions that explore novel applications of machine and deep learning approaches; however, we are open to papers investigating other image processing techniques as well. Some potential areas of interest include methods for dealing with a low number (lack) of annotations; optimal/efficient approaches to procure annotations; scalable methods for multi-organ, multi-tissue analysis applications; approaches to deal with non-normalized sequences/imaging data; and techniques to gather population information.

We welcome submissions on topics including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Symmetric image filtering, enhancement, and smoothing;
  • Symmetric image analysis, segmentation, recognition, detection and understanding;
  • Image representation, compression, and coding;
  • Applications of symmetry in medical imaging, acquisition, reconstruction, denoising, super-resolution, segmentation, registration, tracking, and others;
  • Applications of symmetry in different medical image modalities, including MR, X-ray, PET, and US imaging (but excluding biological or microscopy imaging).

All submissions will be subjected to a rigorous peer-review process to ensure their quality and originality. Accepted papers will be published online and will be accessible to all readers.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.
