For many years, Information Hiding has captured the imagination of researchers.
Digital watermarking and steganography protect information, conceal secrets or
are used as core primitives in digital rights management schemes. Steganalysis
and forensics pose important challenges to investigators; and privacy techniques
try to hide relational information such as the actors' identities in anonymous
communication systems. These and other topic share the notion that security is
defined by the difficulty to make (or avoid) inference on certain properties of
host data, which therefore has to be well understood and modeled.

Current research themes include:
    * Anonymity and privacy
    * Covert/subliminal channels
    * Digital rights management
    * Fingerprinting and embedding codes
    * Multimedia and document security
    * Multimedia forensics and counter forensics
    * Novel applications of information hiding
    * Other data hiding domains (e.g. text, software, etc.)
    * Security metrics for information hiding
    * Steganography and steganalysis
    * Theoretical aspects of information hiding and detection
    * Watermarking (algorithms, security, attacks)

Continuing a successful series that brought together experts in these closely
linked research areas, the

  13th edition of Information Hiding will be held in Prague, Czech Republic.

Interested parties are invited to submit novel papers on research and
practice which are related to the above areas of interest. Claims
about information hiding technology, such as robustness or
steganographic security, must be backed by strong evidence in the
paper (such as mathematical proofs, statistical modeling or extensive

Submissions must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. Submissions should follow the Springer
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format and should be no more
than 15 pages including the bibliography and well-marked
appendices. Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published
by Springer in the LNCS series. Authors can submit their manuscripts
on-line on the conference website where detailed instructions are
provided. The submitted papers should be anonymized avoiding obvious
