A. Message From the EIC: Recent changes to CSVT have been announced in the Message From the EIC on the CSVT website ( as well as the CSVT Xplore website (

B. New Editorial Board: The new editorial board has been announced on the CSVT website ( An introduction of the Deputy Editor-in-Chief and New Associate Editors is available on the CSVT Xplore website:

C. CSVT Scope: The IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS FOR VIDEO TECHNOLOGY covers all aspects of visual information relating to video or that have the potential to impact future developments in the field of video technology and video systems, including but not limited to:

  1. image/video processing: acquisition, representation, display, processing, transform, filtering, enhancement, restoration, watermarking;
  2. image/video analysis and computer vision: characterization, classification, detection, tracking, assessment, segmentation, summarization, understanding, motion estimation, feature extraction, machine learning, machine intelligence, pattern analysis, pattern recognition, neural networks;
  3. image/video compression: quantization, compression, quality assessment, rate control, error resilience, multiview, standards;
  4. image/video communication: coding, streaming, distribution, interaction, networking, transport, wireless and mobile systems;
  5. image/video storage: archives, networks, content management, databases, indexing, search, retrieval;
  6. image/video hardware/software systems: architecture, hardware, software, multiprocessors, parallel processors, algorithms, VLSI, circuits, high-speed, real-time, low-power systems;
  7. image/video applications: synthetic imaging, augmented imaging, video gaming, virtual reality, audio-visual systems, human-computer interaction, multimedia systems, multi-camera systems, surveillance, security, forensics, medical imaging, big data systems, cloud computing, and other video-related technologies.


D. Prior Publication Policy: The new policy of CSVT is that "[p]apers that have been published in conference and workshop proceedings may be submitted for consideration to CSVT provided that (i) the authors cite their earlier work; (ii) the papers are not identical; and (iii) the journal publication includes novel elements (e.g., more comprehensive experiments)". See If you have published preliminary results of your work in any imaging-related conference (e.g., ICIP, VCIP, ICME, CVPR, ICCV, ICPR, ACM Multimedia, ICC, Globecom, and ISCAS) and would like to expose your work in visual information to the premier publication in video technology and video systems, I encourage you to consider submission of your work to the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology.
