Sampling Theory in Signal and Image Processing

Special Issue on Compressed Sensing

The research field of Compressed Sensing (CS) is new and very rapidly growing. CS is a sampling paradigm that allows us to go beyond the Shannon limit by exploiting the sparsity structure of the signal. CS allows us to capture and represent compressible signals at a rate significantly below the Nyquist rate. The sampling step is very fast since it employs non-adaptive linear projections that preserve the structure of the signal. The signal is reconstructed from these projections by viewing the decoding step as a linear inverse problem that is cast as a sparsity-regularized convex optimization problem.

This special issue is a call to gather a broad range of methods, algorithms and theoretical results in the area of compressed sensing. The retained papers will present new works and review papers. Original contributions are solicited from the following non-exhaustive list of topics:
    Modeling of natural signals and images based on sparse representation.
    Theoretical breakthroughs to assess the sparsity of representations or to ensure the recovery of signals..
    Study of the large scale optimization problems occurring in sparse recovery, with theoretical or algorithmic contributions.
    Applications in medical and biomedical imaging, distributed and remote sensing, astronomical imaging, seismic imaging, analogue to digital information conversion, audio signal processing, video, etc..

A Complete Bibliography of Sampling Theory and Applications

Currently we have volunteered working on a complete bibliography for Sampling Theory and Applications, we will publish it as soon as it is ready.

STSIP Available Online

You can find all the information about the journal, and you can view the abstracts of the last six volumes, plus a sample issue, Volume 6, Number 2. Those who subscribe to the hard copy will have free access to the online version. The price for a volume of the online version is less than half of that of the hard copy: US $120 for university libraries and other institutions, and US $50 for individuals. Please note that you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader.
