IWDW 2007 is the sixth of a series of international workshops focusing on digital watermarking and relevant techniques. It will provide an excellent opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present as well as to keep abreast with the latest developments in watermarking technologies. We are pleased to invite you to submit papers to and attend IWDW 2007. Since the middle of the last decade, digital watermarking has become a vigorously growing research area. The early work on digital watermarking was characterized by the development of a plethora of watermarking algorithms and attacks against them. The theoretical foundations of watermarking have since then been advanced rapidly, resulting in improved watermarking algorithms as well as more accurate models of the channel capacity and error rates. However, the digital watermarking research still faces many challenges. In addition, new investigations such as data forensics and authentication are called for in dealing with new types of application scenarios. IWDW 2007 aims to provide a very high quality forum for dissemination of research results. Also, Best Paper Prize and Best Student Paper Prize will be awarded to the selected papers.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
Ć Mathematical modeling of watermark embedding and detection
Ć Information theoretic and stochastic aspects of data hiding
Ć Security issues, including attack modeling and counter-attacks
Ć Combination of data hiding and cryptography, and its applications
Ć Optimum watermark detection and Reliable watermark recovery
Ć Estimation of watermark capacity
Ć Channel coding techniques for watermarking
Ć Bounds on error probability
Ć Large-scale experimental tests and benchmarking
Ć New statistical and perceptual models of content
Ć Reversible data hiding
Ć Data hiding in special media
Ć Steganography and steganalysis
Ć Data forensics
Ć Copyright protection and DRM
