Welcome

The 8th International Workshop on Digital Watermarking (IWDW09) is a premier forum for researchers and practitioners working on novel research, development, and applications of digital watermarking, steganography, steganalysis, and forensics techniques for multimedia data. Recent developments apply techniques from advanced coding theory and formal verification in order to improve our understanding of robust watermarking systems and related security protocols.

Major advances in authentication and restoration have further improved detection, localization accuracy and recovery of tampered regions. Data forensics has recently generated new and exciting opportunities, challenges and applications for researchers. IWDW09 aims to provide an international forum for researchers and the dissemination of the latest cutting-edge research results in these important areas. We invite submissions of high-quality original research papers with two prizes to be awarded for the best paper and best student paper kindly sponsored by the Korea Institute of Information Security and Cryptology.

The host for IWDW09 is the University of Surrey (Department of Computing), in the beautiful Cathedral Town of Guildford. The town is centrally located in the South-East of England. Both Heathrow and Gatwick airports, as well as Central London and the ferry port of Portsmouth, are all within an easy commute and less than one hour away by public transport.

If you want to submit a paper, please see our Call for Papers (PDF), or additional Instruction `for Authors' in the left hand menu. Further information will be published here as the time of the event approaches.
