IH 2009 : 11th Information Hiding
Conference Series : Information Hiding
Call For Papers
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 digital forensics pose important challenges to investigators; and information hiding plays an important role in anonymous communication systems. These are but a small number of related topics and issues. Current research themes include:
* Anonymous communication and privacy
* Low probability of intercept communications
* Digital forensics
* Covert/subliminal channels
* Steganography and steganalysis
* Watermarking algorithms and applications
* Security aspects of watermarking
* Novel data hiding domains
* Multimedia and document security
* Novel applications of information hiding
Continuing a successful series that brought together these closely linked research areas, the 11th edition of Information Hiding will be held in Darmstadt, Germany.
* Submission deadline: February 1, 2009
* Notification of acceptance: April 6, 2009
* Camera-ready copy for pre-proceedings: May 4, 2009
* Conference: June 7-10, 2009
* Camera-ready copy for LNCS proceedings: July 20, 2009
Instructions for Authors
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 testing). 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 references.
An online submission system will be available in December 2008.
