Sensors-SI-ISHMA 2021 : [Sensors, IF 3.275] Special Issue on Intelligent Sensors for Human Motion Analysis
Call For Papers
current visual analysis of human motion is one of the most interesting and active research topics in computer vision. This great interest is due to the wide spectrum of promising applications in many areas such as surveillance systems, medicine, athletic performance analysis, human-computer interaction, virtual reality, etc. Human motion analysis concerns the detection, tracking, and recognition of people and their activities based on data recorded by various types of sensors. In these studies, RGB and depth cameras are used. Moreover, studies aimed at developing methods for gait and action recognition often use motion capture systems based on active or passive markers as well as IMU sensors. These systems are very challenging to develop and, at the same time, have great promise for addressing research problems, especially if only visual data are used. Therefore, we welcome the submission of high-quality publications from researchers working on human pose estimation and tracking in addition to related topics such as activity recognition, gait recognition, and human-computer interaction, to name but a few examples. More precisely, the relevant topics for this Special Issue include (but are not limited to):
* Human pose estimation
* Articulated pose tracking
* Multi-person 3D pose estimation
* Action recognition
* Gait recognition
* Gesture recognition
* Human fall detection
* Pose/shape modeling and rendering
* Future 3D pose prediction
* Human–computer interaction
* Synthetic data and data annotation for 3D human pose
* Application of human motion analysis methods (e.g., robotics, surveillance, medicine).
Submission Deadline: 15 March 2022
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
