Call For Papers

The First International Symposium on Multimedia Security and Digital Forensics (MSDF 2017)
Guangzhou, China, December 12-15, 2017

In Conjunction with SpaCCS 2017, The 10th International Conference on Security, Privacy and Anonymity in Computation, Communication and Storage
Multimedia security and digital forensics is an active research area considering the ever-expanding areas including social media and IoT. Digital forensics has become a challenging one as we need more tools that are less pervasive and intervening on well established social platforms. In the last decade a large number of multimedia security and forensic techniques have been proposed. However, most of these solutions adopt very limiting and simplifying working conditions and inappropriate for real-world deployment. The symposium on Multimedia Security and Digital Forensics (MSDF’17) will serve as a platform for researchers to share novel ideas, techniques and communicate with international peers.

The symposium will focus on the following subjects of interest, as well as related issues:
- Attacks on Visual Captchas
- Big Data Analysis for Forensics
- Bio-Inspired Multimedia Signal Processing
- Biometrics for Multimedia
- Compressed Sensing
- Content-Protection and Counter-Protection
- Counter Forensics
- Cryptography, Authentication, Authorization and Usage Control for Multimedia Big Data
- Cyber Crime Investigations
- Cyber Threat Analysis for Image and Video Data
- Data Hiding in Multimedia
- Data-Driven Multimedia Forensics and Security
- Digital Forensics and Law
- Digital Watermarking and Finger Printing
- Feature Extraction from Multimedia
- Forensic Data Fusion
- Forensics on IoT
- Hashing for Multimedia Identification
- Image and Video Collection Forensics
- Incident Response Related to Image and Video Data
- Multidimensional Visualization Systems of Multimedia Big Data on Clouds
- Multimedia Analysis
- Multimedia Content Authentication
- Multimedia Evidence Recovery and Validation
- Multimedia Forensics
- Multimedia Provenance
- Multimedia Source Device Identification
- Multimedia Web Service Security
- Near Copy Detection
- Privacy and Security of Social Network
- Secure Access to Enterprise Social Media and Shared Accounts
