7thACMWorkshop on Information Hiding and Multimedia Security
3-5 July 2019
Paris, France

Submission deadline: February 20, 2019

For more than 20 years the fields of*Information Hiding and Multimedia 
Security*have blended advances of multiple disciplines, accumulating a 
substantial body of knowledge. Signal forensics, digital watermarking, 
and steganography are representative but not the only topics of 
interest. All pertinent works have in common that some form of host 
signal is involved in the realization of security and privacy goals. 
This workshop has established a reputation as one of the premier outlets 
for research in these and related areas. Continuing this tradition, the 
workshop’s 2018 edition solicits novel papers documenting research or 
industrial practice.

Submitted papers should address*security and privacy aspects in relation 
to multimedia **host signals*in a broad sense (e.g., images, audios, 
videos, texts, network traffics, etc):


    Forensics and counterforensics


    Steganography and steganalysis


    Covert and subliminal channels


    Watermarking and fingerprinting


    Networks and protocols

  * Anonymity


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, using or advancing 
the following*methods*:


    Information, coding, and complexity theory


    Game and decision theory


    Statistical modelling


    Machine learning and deep learning


    Secure Signal Processing and Privacy-preserving systems


    Benchmarking and replication



This year we particularly encourage submissions for the following topics:


    Multimedia security into the wild, in connection with theALASKA
    challenge <https://alaska.utt.fr/>


    Computer network covert channels

  * Special Session: Media Forensics - Fake or Real?

Authors are invited to submit both short papers (4-6 pages, for 
preliminary yet interesting results) and full papers (10-12 pages, for 
major contributions).

Submissions must not substantially overlap with papers that have been 
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a 
conference. Submissions should be properly anonymized for double blinded 
review, therefore authors and their affiliations should be removed and 
language be adjusted to prevent easy identification.

There will be two awards for the most outstanding papers: one for the 
best paper and one for the best student paper, with a student as first 

Proceedings will be produced and published by ACM.

For questions relating to the Call for Papers, please feel free to

  Formatting instructions

Technical papers submitted for ACM IH&MMSec '19 are to be written in 
English. Short papers must be 4-6 pages long, while full papers must be 
10-12 pages long (including bibliography in both cases). Submissions 
must follow the new ACM conference template 
<https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template> (please use 
sigconf style). Submissions should not use older ACM formats or 
non-standard formatting, and must be in pdf format. Authors should 
devote special care that fonts, images, tables and figures comply with 
common standards and do not generate problems for reviewers. Submissions 
not meeting the formatting requirements risk rejection without 
consideration of their merits.

All submissions should be appropriately anonymized. Author names and 
affiliations should not appear in the paper. The authors should avoid 
obvious self-references and should appropriately blind them if used. The 
list of authors cannot be changed after the acceptance decision is made 
unless approved by the Program Chairs.

Manuscripts can be submittedhere
