15th International Workshop on Digital-forensics and Watermarking (IWDW 2016)
Beijing, China 17-19 September, 2016 

The 15th International Workshop on Digital-forensics and Watermarking
(IWDW 2016) is a premier forum for researchers and practitioners
working on novel research, development and applications of digital
watermarking and forensics techniques for multimedia security. We
invite submissions of high-quality original research papers.

Paper Submission Deadline: 15 June 2016 
Notification of Acceptance: 1 August 2016 
Submission of Camera-Ready Versions: 1 September 2016 

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: 
Mathematical modeling of embedding and detection 
Information theoretic, stochastic aspects of data hiding 
Security issues, including attacks and counter-attacks 
Combination of data hiding and cryptography 
Optimum watermark detection and reliable recovery 
Estimation of watermark capacity 
Channel coding techniques for watermarking 
Large-scale experimental tests and benchmarking 
New statistical and perceptual models of multimedia content 
Reversible data hiding 
Data hiding in special media 
Data hiding and authentication 
Steganography and steganalysis 
Digital multimedia forensics & anti-forensics 
Copyright protection, DRM, forensic watermarking 
Visual cryptography & secret image sharing 
Security based on human vision system 

The proceedings will be published in Springer's LNCS.
