IEEE WIFS 2024 : 16th IEEE INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON INFORMATION FORENSICS AND SECURITY (WIFS) 2024
Call For Papers
16th IEEE INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON INFORMATION FORENSICS AND SECURITY (WIFS) 2024
ROME, ITALY, DECEMBER 2-5, 2024
AIMS AND SCOPE
The IEEE International Workshop on Information Forensics and Security (WIFS) 2024 will be the 16th edition of the major annual event organized by the IEEE Information Forensics and Security Technical Committee (IFS-TC) of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS). The major goal of WIFS is to bring together researchers working in the different areas of information forensics and security to discuss challenges, exchange ideas, and share state-of-the-art results and technical expertise, with the aim of building a community capable of providing adequate tools and solutions to face the challenges of tomorrow.
WIFS 2024 will be held in Rome, Italy, from December 2 to December 5, hosted by Roma Tre University, and it will see the participation of researchers from all over the world, who will allow to have a high-level technical program, also thanks to the expertise of the program committee involved, and who will have the opportunity to exploit an interesting social program taking advantage of the charm of the Eternal City.
CALL FOR TUTORIALS
The organizing committee invites proposals for Tutorials on relevant and emerging topics in the area of Information Forensics and Security. Tutorials will be given during the first day of the conference, on Monday December 2, 2024.
CALL FOR SPECIAL SESSIONS
The organizing committee invites proposals for innovative and high-quality special sessions on emerging topics, which complement the regular program of the conference. Special sessions should both provide an overview of the state of the art in the proposed field, and highlight the most promising research directions, trends and issues. Special session proposals will be evaluated based on the proposed topic, the expected impact, the expected quality of the contributed papers, and the session organizers and contributing authors. Special session paper submissions will be reviewed via the same process used for the regular program, and papers are expected to meet the same quality standards. Accepted and presented papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore.
CALL FOR DEMOS
The organizing committee invites proposals for demonstrations of applications in information forensics and security topics. Demos are intended as real, practical, and interactive proof of the presenters' research ideas and scientific or engineering contributions, with the goal of providing researchers and practitioners with the opportunity to discuss working systems, applications, prototypes, or proof-of-concepts. Accepted and presented demos will be described in short papers that will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore.
CALL FOR CHALLENGES
The organizing committee invites proposals for challenges addressing problems that will engage and excite the information forensics and security research community. The organizers should design their challenges in a way to make the final evaluation fully replicable by others after the challenge is concluded. The organizers are also in charge of evaluating the submitted results/models. The organizers will be asked to summarize the challenge outcomes in a paper with the same format as regular submissions that will be presented during the workshop and submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore.
CALL FOR PAPERS
Prospective authors are invited to submit research papers be up to 6 double-column pages, including references and figures, presenting original works and addressing Information Forensics and Security aspects in a broad sense. The review process will be single-blind (author’s names can be reported in the submitted papers). Accepted and presented papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore. It is planned to organize a special issue with invitations for a selection of the best presented papers.
