Call for Papers IEEE MultiMedia Special Issue on Cybersecurity for Cyber-Enabled Multimedia Applications CFP: IEEE MultiMedia Special Issue on Cybersecurity for Cyber-Enabled Multimedia Applications

Submission deadline: 1 December 2016
Publication: October–December 2017

With the rapid popularity of social network applications and advanced
digital devices, the past few years have witnessed the explosive
growth of multimedia big data in terms of both scale and variety. Such
increasing multimedia data determines a new way of communication —
seamless network connection, the joyfulness user experience, and free
information sharing. Meanwhile, security issues related to such
multimedia big data have arisen, and an urgent demand for novel
technologies has emerged to deal with copyright protection, multimedia
forgery detection, and cybersecurity, especially for cyber-enabled
multimedia applications. Although many promising solutions have been
proposed recently, it is still challenging for the multimedia
community to effectively and efficiently handle security challenges
over large-scale multimedia data, especially when the scale comes up
from tens of thousands to tens of millions or even billions.

This special issue aims to bring together the greatest research
efforts in cybersecurity for cyber-enabled multimedia applications to
specifically deal with the security challenges in the multimedia big
data era. The main goals are to investigate novel ideas and research
work of cybersecurity issues with multimedia big data; find or develop
effective and efficient techniques and methods in computer vision,
multimedia processing, and sensor networks for specific cybersecurity
tasks, such as data hiding, and forensics; survey the progress of this
area in the past years; and explore interesting and practical
cyber-enabled multimedia applications. Submissions should be
unpublished and present innovative research work offering
contributions either from a methodological or application point of
view. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the

Emerging fundamental issues in multimedia big data security
Text, audio, images, and video data hiding
Multimedia steganography and corresponding steganalysis
Multimedia watermarking, fingerprinting, and hashing
Multimedia forensics and data source identification
Cryptography, secret sharing, and biometrics
Multimedia network security, privacy, and protection
Multimedia big data trust management and access control
Secure covert communications and cybersecurity
Secure cyber-enabled multimedia applications in health, education, and so on
