The journal Entropy (ISSN 1099-4300, IF 1.821) is currently running a Special Issue entitled "Rate-Distortion Theory and Information Theory". Prof. Dr. Jerry D. Gibson, of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California (Santa Barbara, USA), is serving as Guest Editor for this issue. We think you could make an excellent contribution based on your expertise and your following paper:
Fast coding unit (CU) determination algorithm for high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) in smart surveillance application. J. Supercomput. 2017, 73, 1063-1084.
Rate distortion theory has historically received less attention than Channel Capacity, primarily due to the difficulty of crafting physically meaningful, mathematically tractable source models and fidelity criteria. It is the goal of this Special Issue to reemphasize the critical accomplishments of rate distortion theory and to highlight new directions in rate distortion theoretic and information theoretic research. [...]

The submission deadline is 31 January 2018. You may send your manuscript now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage authors to send a short abstract or tentative title to the Editorial Office in advance (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Entropy is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access by readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as indicated by several studies. Open access is supported by the authors and their institutes. An Article Processing Charge (APC) of CHF 1500 currently applies to all accepted papers. You may be entitled to a discount if you have previously received a discount code or if your institute is participating in the MDPI Institutional Open Access Program (IOAP), for more information see: http://www.mdpi.com/about/ioap.
For further details on the submission process, please see the instructions for authors at the journal website (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/entropy/instructions).
We look forward to hearing from you.
