- 15 October, 2018 – MPS Workshop


The 2nd International Workshop on Multimedia Privacy and Security (MPS 2018), co-located with ACM CCS 2018 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, will bring together researchers and practitioners in cybersecurity, data privacy, and multimedia. MPS 2018 focuses on the security and privacy issues that have developed as our society has become more interconnected, specifically with respect to multimedia data generated by the Internet of Things (IoT) and Web 2.0.

We live in an interconnected world where ever-increasing multitudes of devices and people are connected to each other by intelligent algorithms, apps, social networks, and the infrastructure set by Internet of Things (IoT) and Web 2.0 (i.e., online social networks, instant messaging services and P2P systems such as blockchain based networks). As more people and their devices are connected without much restriction, the issues of security, privacy, and trust remain a challenge. Multimedia data and devices have been dominating the Internet and the IoT as more and more devices are capable of producing and handling multimedia data such as audio, image, video and computer graphics. In recent years, we have witnessed an increasing number of security incidents about hacking, security breaches, data manipulation, social engineering, and new attacks against many online systems and services, many of which are related to multimedia data and/or devices. For instance, malware is hidden within an image file on a web site, and any user who visits the website can get its machine infected immediately after its web browser displays the image. We invite researchers who are working on new and innovative methods, techniques, and proofs‐of‐concepts in multimedia privacy and security to submit papers for this workshop.

==Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
