Introduction and Call For Papers

For many years Information Hiding has captured the imagination of researchers. Digital watermarking and steganography tools are used to address digital rights management, protect information, and conceal secrets.

From an investigators perspective, information hiding provides an interesting challenge for digital forensic investigations and steganalysis techniques allows hidden information to be discovered.

These are but a small number of related topics and issues. Current research themes include:

  • anonymous communications,
  • covert channels in computer systems,
  • detection of hidden information (steganalysis),
  • digital forensics,
  • information hiding aspects of privacy,
  • steganography,
  • subliminal channels in cryptographic protocols,
  • watermarking for protection of intellectual property,
  • other applications of watermarking.

The 8th Information Hiding International Conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Select in Alexandria, Virginia (minutes away from Downtown Washington, DC via metro rail) from 10 July to 12 July 2006.

Proceedings will be published as Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer.

Author Instructions
Interested parties are invited to submit novel papers on research and practice which are related to the above areas of interest. We want a balanced program and seek submissions on topics such as anonymous communication, anonymous online transactions, privacy, and covert/subliminal communications, along with our usual quality steganography, watermarking and fingerprinting submissions. Claims about information hiding technology, such as robustness or steganographic security, must be backed by strong evidence in the paper (such as mathematical proofs, statistical modeling or extensive testing).

Submissions must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. The papers must be at most 16 pages including the bibliography and well-marked appendices. The papers must be typeset in the Springer LNCS format.

Authors wishing to submit papers shall send their paper in PDF format via the web submission form at https://conference.zurich.ihost.com/start/IH06/. The submitted papers should be anonymized avoiding obvious references. Submissions received after the submission deadline or failing to conform to the guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Where possible, all further communications to authors will be via email.

Questions regarding the conference should be directed to the conference chairperson, Neil F. Johnson (ih2006@jjtc.com) or co-chair, Phil Sallee (sallee_phil@bah.com).
