IET Image Processing (formerly part of IEE Proceedings – Vision, Image, and Signal Processing)


The range of topics covered by IET Image Processing includes the following areas related to the generation, processing and communication of visual information:

  • Generation and Display – Imaging sensors and acquisition systems, illumination, sampling and scanning, quantization, colour reproduction, image rendering, display and printing systems, evaluation of image quality.
  • Processing and Analysis – Image enhancement, restoration, segmentation, registration, multispectral, colour and texture processing, multiresolution processing and wavelets, morphological operations, stereoscopic and 3-D processing, motion detection and estimation, video and image sequence processing.
  • Implementations and Architectures – Image and video processing hardware and software, design and construction, architectures and software, neural, adaptive, and fuzzy processing.
  • Coding and Transmission – Image and video compression and coding, compression standards, noise modelling, visual information networks, streamed video.
  • Retrieval and Multimedia – Storage of images and video, database design, image retrieval, video annotation and editing, mixed media incorporating visual information, multimedia systems and applications, image and video watermarking, steganography.
  • Applications – Innovative application of image and video processing technologies to any field, including life sciences, earth sciences, astronomy, document processing and security.

What has happened to IEE Proceedings Vision, Image and Signal Processing?

Following the merger between the IEE (Institution of Electrical Engineers) and the IIE (The Institution of Incorporated Engineers) to form the Institution of Engineering and Technology, with effect from 2007, the IEE Proceedings suite of journals have changed name to reflect the fact that they are now published by the Institution of Engineering and Technology. To better serve the computer vision, image processing and signal processing communities, IEE Proceedings Vision, Image and Signal Processing has split into 3 brand new titles from 2007; IET Image Processing, IET Signal Processing and IET Computer Vision. IEE Proceedings Vision, Image and Signal Processing ceased publication at the end of 2006.

IET Image Processing starts from Volume 1, Issue 1 from March 2007 onwards. All other benefits of publishing in the journal, including our worldwide readership and database coverage, remain unchanged.

Online subscribers to IET Image Processing can also access all backfile issues of IEE Proceedings Vision, Image and Signal Processing from 1994-2006 as part of their current online subscription.
