12th Information Hiding Conference, 2010, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

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 forensics pose important  
challenges to investigators; and privacy techniques try to hide  
relational information such as the actors' identities in anonymous  
communication systems. These and other topic share the notion that  
security is defined by the difficulty to make (or avoid) inference on  
certain properties of host data, which therefore has to be well  
understood and modeled.

Current research themes include:
- Anonymity and privacy
- Covert/subliminal channels
- Digital rights management
- Fingerprinting and embedding codes
- Multimedia and document security
- Multimedia forensics and counter forensics
- Novel applications of information hiding
- Other data hiding domains (e.g. text, software, etc.)
- Security metrics for information hiding
- Steganography and steganalysis
- Theoretical aspects of information hiding and detection
- Watermarking (algorithms, security, attacks)

Continuing a successful series that brought together these closely  
linked research areas, the 12th edition of Information Hiding will be  
held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

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.
