It has become a tradition for the Journal of Mathematical Imaging and Vision (JMIV) to exchange parts of its editorial board on a regular basis. There are three main reasons for this policy:
  1. 1.

    It gives us the flexibility to react to the continuous evolution in all areas of mathematical imaging and vision.

     
  2. 2.

    Some leading researchers who have shaped the success of JMIV by choosing it as one of their preferred publication forums and supporting us with their expertise as reliable reviewers obtain the chance to become even more involved in the future of our journal.

     
  3. 3.

    There are also natural fluctuations where a few board members enter a very busy period of their career which forces them to reduce their editorial activities.

     
Also in this year, some changes in our editorial board have taken place. First of all, I would like to thank four members of our board whose appointment period has come to a regular end: Leo Grady, Longin Latecki, Frank Nielsen, and James A. Sethian. To my regret, Mário A. T. Figueiredo, Stefano Soatto, and Hemant Tagare have informed me that they have to step down in order to focus on other important commitments. I am very grateful to all these experts for their time, their dedication, and their support of JMIV.

We have filled these vacancies with seven new editorial board members, and it is my pleasure to introduce them here.

Our first new board member is Jean-Charles Pinoli (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne). He has pioneered generalized linear image processing models, and he is also an expert on methods based on stereology, integral geometry, and mathematical morphology. He has strongly supported JMIV as a regular author. Artyom M. Grigoryan (University of Texas at San Antonio) will reinforce our editorial board with his deep knowledge on signal processing and in particular multidimensional discrete unitary image transforms, where he is well known for his influential monograph.

Xue-Cheng Tai (University of Bergen) has a strong numerical analysis background, and he has contributed substantially to level set methods and various optimization approaches for image analysis problems. Together with our new editorial board member Carola-Bibiane Schönlieb (University of Cambridge, UK), who has written a recent monograph on inpainting methods with partial differential equations, he will support us in an area where we receive many submissions. For analytical aspects of related image analysis approaches, I am pleased that we will be able to count on the expertise of Patrick Guidotti (University of California, Irvine).

Methods that rely substantially on concepts from statistics have become quite important over the years. Here our board will benefit from two new names: Anuj Srivastava (Florida State University, Tallahassee) and Jürgen Gall (University of Bonn). Anuj Srivastava has a long-standing experience in combining ideas from geometry and statistics in order to analyse shapes, textures, appearances, and motions in data sets. Jürgen Gall is a fairly young but very active researcher who will help us to handle manuscripts that deal with various computer vision tasks such as action recognition, object detection, and human pose estimation.

I thank these seven experts for their willingness to take over responsibilities in our editorial board, and I look forward to a fruitful collaboration.
