 Dear colleague,

We are glad to announce the opening of a special issue on
"Hierarchical Representations: New Results and Challenges for Image
Analysis" at the PRLetters journal for Spring 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 aim of this virtual 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.

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.

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
