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 digital investigators and privacy
techniques try to hide relational information such as the actors' identities in
anonymous communication systems. These and other topics 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 experts in these closely 
linked research areas, the 

  14th edition of Information Hiding will be held in Berkeley, California.

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 and/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 have to be presented at the workshop and
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 for a double-blind review process.
