First submission paper due: April 30, 2019

First review notification: June 15, 2019

Revision submission: July 30, 2019

Second review notification: October 15, 2019

Final notice of acceptance/rejection: November 30, 2019



Paper submissions must conform to the Pattern Recognition Letters format guidelines

Manuscripts can have no more than 7 pages (plus one page after revision) and must be submitted to the online submission system. When submitting their papers through the online system, authors must select the acronym ”VSI:TIAR” as the article type.

The proposed virtual special issue will consider extended and updated versions of papers published at the CTIC 2019 conference as well as submissions from anybody proposing new, unpublished, original methods in the field of topological image analysis and recognition.

If the submission is an extended work of a previously published paper, the original work should be included as a reference and a description of the significant changes that have been made should be provided.

Guest editors will make an initial determination of the suitability and scope of all submissions.
