Sixth IAPR International Workshop on Computational Forensics (IWCF) August 24, 2014 Stockholm, Sweden

* CALL FOR PAPERS * With the advent of high-end technology, fraudulent efforts are on rise in many areas of our daily life, may it be fake paper documents, forgery in the digital domain or copyright infringement. In solving the related criminal cases use of pattern recognition (PR) principles is also gaining an important place because of their ability in successfully assisting the forensic experts to solve many of such cases. The workshops on Computational Forensics generally aims at addressing the theoretical and practical issues related to this field, i.e. role of PR techniques for analysing problems in forensics.

The 6th International Workshop on Computational Forensics (IWCF) will put emphasis on forged document analysis both in hardcopy and digital medium. Analysis of handwriting or signature, detection of change in original documents, writer/speaker identification and verification and copyright violation will be discussed at length. Effort is to bring the people together who are working on these issues in different areas including document and speech processing, music analysis, digital security, forensic sciences, etc. Some broad areas, though not limited to, of the workshop are:

  • Detection of fake documents
  • Authentication of security documents
  • Change detection
  • Copyright protection
  • Encryption and watermarking
  • Digital forensics
  • Handwriting and Speech analysis
  • Face, Palm, and Iris recognition

Like in the previous years, the workshop will be a place for elaborate discussion of the academic and industrial works, documenting the advances in the related field and creating mutual collaboration on related areas. Interaction among practitioners and academic researchers will receive special attention in this workshop.
