*Neurocomputing Special Issue on Image Feature Detection and Description*

*Manuscript submission: 8 December 2011*

Image feature detection and description are the basis of image and video
analysis. Robust and efficient image features can significantly improve the
performance of image/video retrieval, recognition, tracking, biometrics,
matching, registration, reconstruction, etc. Image features can be local,
dense, dense local, semi-local and global. In many cases, image features are
expected to be stable, repeatable, illumination invariant, discriminative,
representative, and even have semantic senses. In addition, the computation
efficiency is also an important factor for image feature extraction and
description. In recent years, many powerful image features are developed
such as SIFT, SURF, HOG, LBP, GLOH, Daisy, GIST (Spatial Envelope), RCM
(Region Covariance Matrix). Although much fruits have been achieved in image
feature detection and description, there is large space to improve the
performance.

The aim of this special issue is to bring together the state-of-the research
results on image feature detection and description and its applications.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Criterion for image feature detection and description

- Fast algorithm for image feature detection and description

- Learning-based feature extraction

- Local vs. global image features

- Dense vs. sparse image features

- Multi-scale image features

- Image feature selection, weighing, and combination

- Performance evaluation of different image features

- Application of image features for image and video analysis
