IEEE Transactions on Image Processing
Special Issue on Image Processing for Cultural Heritage

Driven by the diffusion of multimedia technology and by the
availability of more and more effective electronic imaging tools,
image-processing techniques have been successfully applied to the
analysis, restoration, archiving and preservation of artworks. Among
the recent developments, it is worth mentioning, for example,
advanced virtual restoration techniques of artworks (offering users
reproductions of artworks as they would have appeared when
originally created or at least close to that), creation of very
high-resolution images of paintings for dissemination or
study-research purposes, evaluation of the quality of digital
reproductions of artworks in printed or displayed form, protection
of artwork digital reproductions through digital watermarking,
extended use of 3D digital techniques for representation and
processing of artworks.

This Special Issue is aimed at dissemination of recent advances in
image processing applications to Cultural Heritage. Research topics
in this field include (but are not limited to):

    *   Image analysis tools for artwork diagnosis

    *   Image processing as an aid in actual and virtual restoration

    *   Very high-quality artwork document production and quality

    *   Color and multispectral image processing for the fine arts

    *   3D image processing for representation of artworks in
        virtual reality

    *   Compression of artwork images

    *   Large size image storage and handling for presentation and

    *   Efficient artwork image indexing and retrieval

    *   Recognition of features and structures in images and 3D
        museum objects

    *   Film restoration and preservation techniques

    *   Watermarking applications
