Dear colleagues,

The IEEE International Workshop on Information Forensics and Security 
(WIFS) is the first workshop to be organized by the IEEE’s Information 
Forensics and Security Technical Committee. It is intended to become an 
annual event. Our aspiration is to create a venue for knowledge exchange 
that encompasses a broad range of disciplines and facilitates the 
exchange of ideas between various disparate communities that constitute 
information security. By so doing, we hope that researchers will 
identify new opportunities for collaboration across disciplines and gain 
new perspectives.

The conference will feature prominent keynote speakers, tutorials, 
lecture sessions organized in two parallel tracks, and a poster session. 
Appropriate topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Biometrics: emerging modalities, recognition techniques, multimodal 
decision, attacks and countermeasures;
* Computer security: intrusion detection, vulnerability analysis, system 
* Cryptography for multimedia content: perceptual hash function, 
multimedia encryption, signal processing in the encrypted domain, 
traitor tracing codes, key distribution;
* Data hiding: watermarking, steganography and steganalysis, legacy 
system enhancement;
* Digital Rights Management (DRM): DRM primitives (secure clocks, 
proximity detection, etc), DRM architectures, DRM interoperability;
* Forensic analysis: device identification, data recovery, validation of 
forensic evidence;
* Network security: privacy protection, network tomography and 
surveillance, system recovery from security/privacy failure;
* Non technical aspects of security: legal, ethical, social and 
economical issues;
* (Video) surveillance: arrays of sensors design and analysis, content 
tracking, events recognition, large crowd behaviour analysis;
* Secure Applications: e-voting, e-commerce.

_Submission of papers:_ Prospective authors are invited to submit 
full-length, five-page papers, including figures and references, to the 
WIFS’09 Technical Program Committee. Papers will be accepted only by 
electronic submission through the conference web site. Template style 
files are also provided on the conference web site. Accepted authors are 
expected to present their papers at the conference. Please note that the 
submission dates for papers are strict deadlines.

Please check our website http://www.wifs09.org for more details.
