IH & MMSec’2013 The 1st ACM Information Hiding and Multimedia Security Workshop (IH and ACM MMSec decided to merge in a single event).

June 17 – 19, 2013, Montpellier, France.

-> Submission website is open:
-> Submission deadline displaced to February 8, 2013.


  • "From Biometric to Forensics", chaired by Chang-Tsun Li and Massimo Tistarelli.
  • "End User and Signal Processing: a successful synergy towards the assessment of forensic tools", chaired by Marco Carli.
  • "Media encryption", chaired by Andreas Uhl.
  • "Moving steganography and steganalysis from the laboratory to the real world", chaired by Andrew Ker.

Information Hiding (aka. IH) was created in 1996 and focused on digital watermarking, steganography and steganalysis, anonymity and privacy,
hard to intercept communications and covert/subliminal channels. ACM Workshop on Multimedia and Security (aka. ACM MMSec) was initiated in
1998 and focused on data hiding, robust/perceptual hash, biometrics, video surveillance, and multimedia forensics.

Year after year, the two communities grew closer and the overlap between their respective scope got bigger. As a result, after 14 successful
editions each, IH and ACM MMSec decided to merge in a single event.

The 1st ACM Information Hiding and Multimedia Security Workshop (IH&MMSec) will be held at the University of Montpellier II, in southern France, on
June 17-19, 2013. You are invited to submit a short or a full paper.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Integrity verification of digital content
  • Source device identification and linking
  • Multimedia watermarking, fingerprinting and identification
  • Multimedia network protection, privacy and security
  • Multimedia authentication and encryption
  • Signal Processing in the Encrypted Domain
  • Steganography and steganalysis
  • Biometrics
  • Application of smart cards and ID cards
  • Secure multimedia system design and protocol security
  • Security evaluation and benchmarks
  • Emerging applications
  • Privacy, policy and legal issues as well as their interaction with technological development
  • Pattern Recognition and Security for Crime Scene Forensics Traces
  • Combination of multimodal biometrics with other forensic evidence
  • Ethical and societal implications of emerging forensics in multimedia and biometrics


  • Submission deadline: February 8, 2013
