*Recent Advances in Multimedia Watermarking and Forensics*

Paper submission deadline: *June**17, 2016*

*Call for Papers*

Digital multimedia contents (e.g., audio, images, and video) now play an 
important role in people's daily life, in part due to the increasing 
popularity of smart phones and the consistent capacity improvement of 
personal computers and network infrastructure. Accordingly, during the 
last two decades, the security issues related to multimedia contents 
have attracted much attention from both academic researchers and 
industrial practitioners. Digital watermarking and digital forensics are 
two important emerging techniques that attempt to solve these security 
issues, in particular the authentication and the copyright protection of 
different kinds of multimedia contents. In addition, digital 
watermarking has been successfully used, for instance, for multimedia 
content enrichment (e.g., embedding subtitle in a video clip) or even 
compression (e.g., embedding color information in luminance of an 
image), while digital forensics is a useful tool to know more about a 
multimedia file (e.g., the capture device and processing history of a 
digital image). We also observe that the relevant research has been 
advanced, in part through the interaction between watermarking/forensic 
algorithm designers and researchers who play the role of attackers.
The objective of this special issue is to highlight new developments and 
new insights in the field of multimedia watermarking and forensics. We 
solicit high-quality original technical papers as well as review papers. 
Submitted papers should not be previously published or be under 
consideration for publication elsewhere.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Audio, image, and video watermarking and forensics
- Watermarking-based multimedia copyright protection
- Watermarking-based multimedia authentication
- New applications of digital watermarking
- Reversible watermarking
- Security analysis of watermarking algorithms
- Attacks to watermarking systems
- Multimedia authentication using digital forensics
- Multimedia forgery detection
- Multimedia source identification
- Multimedia processing history identification
- Counter forensics/anti-forensics
- Benchmarking of watermarking and forensic algorithms
- Multimedia fingerprinting
- Steganography and steganalysis
