Visual Computing and the Progress of Developing Countries

March/April 2016

IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications magazine cover

In many cases, countries' successes can be attributed to technological advancements, and these advancements often in turn rely on informatics that encompass data, information, knowledge, information systems, and information and communication technologies. This special issue focuses on submissions describing innovative visual computing applications in areas related to the progress of developing countries. From a total of 18 submissions from Brazil, South Africa, and Mexico, the guest editors selected four representative articles that investigate image processing, computer vision, virtual reality, 3D user interaction, and games, all of which are related to different domains, such as industrial technology, HSE (health, safety and environment), knowledge acquisition, and public policy.
