Due to recent progress in intelligent algorithms and sensing and processing devices, visual intelligence is getting more attention, and plays essential roles in many application fields such as visual surveillance, intelligent transportation systems, healthcare, virtual/augmented reality, robotics, autonomous systems and so forth. In addition, growing capability in recent years of processing large amounts of data has given rise to a large variety of interesting applications and created challenging research and development issues.

A crucial new requirement of visual intelligence in the era of big data is to develop effective and efficient methods and analytics solutions for applications by utilising big data. This special issue aims to disseminate recent advances in theory and diverse applications of visual intelligence. We cordially invite authors to submit papers presenting original contributions in the field of visual intelligence.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 5th IEEE International Conference on Control, Automation and Information Sciences, but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
