Call for Papers: Color representation and cortical-inspired image processing

Color is an essential and fascinating attribute issued from the interaction between the visual system and the natural environment. Research about color is becoming more and more relevant, both to understand the intrinsic nature of color perception, and to implement solutions to technological problems. This Special Issue is focused on mathematically rigorous models of color perception, from the point of view of both psychophysics and neuroscience.

Contributions should focus on the interplay between mathematics and neuroscience, with particular focus on the modelling of the human visual system.
Specific themes will be color representation and cortical-inspired image processing.

As specified by the submission guidelines three kind of papers will be accepted:

- Regular research article: a paper with novel contributions;
- Review: systematic and substantial syntheses of specific research areas, evaluations of progress in specified areas, critical assessments with respect to issues;
- Short report: this format is suitable for the presentation of research that extends previously published research, including the reporting of additional data and confirmatory results in other settings, as well as small-scale studies. Authors must clearly acknowledge any work upon which they are building, both published and unpublished.

The acceptance of contributions is subject to a peer review process.
