1 Proposal to the Signal Processing Society Publications Board for a New Journal: Transactions in Computational Imaging Charles A. Bouman, VP Technical Directions, and former EIC of Trans. on Image Processing W. Clem Karl, EIC Trans. on Image Processing Thrasos Pappas, former EIC Trans. on Image Processing

2 Motivation for a New Journal Focusing on Computation and Imaging Changing landscape: – Computation is increasingly becoming an integral part of imaging. New opportunities: – Computational Photography, Computational Microscopy, Compressed Sensing, Coded aperture methods, Mobile Imaging – New interdisciplinary communities: Biomedical, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geoscience, Material Science, Neuroscience… – No established home for journal publication in this area SPS is well positioned to play a leading role in this – Build on existing strengths: CT, SAR, super-resolution imaging, model-based and statistical methods Others will be moving in: – Computer Society: Conference on Computational Photograph – SPIE and IS&T: Mobile Computational Photography

3 Transactions on Computational Imaging Scope: The IEEE Transactions on Computational Imaging will publish articles where computation plays an integral role in the imaging process. Papers will cover all areas of computational imaging ranging from fundamental theoretical methods to the latest innovative computational imaging system designs. Topics of interest will include advanced algorithms and mathematical techniques, model- based data inversion, methods for image and signal recovery from sparse and incomplete data, techniques for non-traditional sensing of image data, methods for dynamic information acquisition and extraction from imaging sensors, software and hardware for efficient computation in imaging systems, and highly novel imaging system design. Domains of interest include: – Computational photography; – Tomographic imaging; – Computational microscopy; – Compressive sensing and sparsity based imaging – Consumer imaging; – Radar, SAR, and terahertz imaging – geo-physical and seismic imaging; – Multi-spectral and remote imaging; – Astronomical imaging; – Imaging and camera networks; – Acoustic and ultrasound Imaging; – Magnetic resonance imaging; – Hardware and Software Systems for Computational Imagingf

4 Relationship to Transactions on Image Processing TIP’s traditional strengths: – Image and video filtering, coding, restoration, analysis, post-processing, retrieval – Deemphasizes sensor models and image formation – Typically assumes formed image as input to processing – Typically does not tightly integrate computation with sensor – A large breadth of topics are covered Why is a Transactions on Computational Imaging needed? – The computational imaging community is currently scattered – Breath of TIP makes it an unlikely home for the CI community – TCI papers currently represents 15% of TIP papers This is insufficient to attract growing community of CI authors to TIP But it can serve as a beachhead for creating a new journal – TIP currently has a large number of submissions that are rapidly growing TIP statistics for 2012: 1438 submissions and 359 papers published Acceptance ratio of 24% Overlap with TIP – TIP current has 37 EDICS; ~7 EDICS have substantial overlap with TCI (19%) – 15% of TIP manuscripts substantially overlap with TCI – Minimal effect anticipated on TIP impact factor

5 Additional Possible Issues to Consider Overlap with TMI – Limited overlap since most Computational Imaging applications are not medical Technical Committee Support – Primary representation: Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing (IVMSP) – Additional support from: Bioimaging and Signal Processing (BISP), Signal Processing Theory and Methods (SPTM), etc. – Possible future creation of an associated TC on Computational Imaging Technical or Financial Co-Sponsors – Computer Society: Does not currently have a journal that includes Computational Imaging in its scope. However, it does sponsor the International Conference on Computational Photography, so it may have an interest in participation in the journal. – Other possible co-sponsors: GRSS, EMBS, etc. are possible, but less likely. Need for new SPS Journals: – Submission rates to SP journals are growing rapidly – Breadth and impact of SP research is growing – New SPS journals have been very successful (e.g., JSTSP, TIFS, etc.)

6 Statistics on TIP Overlap and Growth TIP growth rate and selectivity – Year 2012: 1438 submissions and 359 papers published. Acceptance ratio of 24%. Fraction of TIP publications in Computational Imaging – Approximately 15% of publications (exact number are difficult to extract) – Histogram of (approximate) submission by EDICS category with COI topics highlighted in red
