Final paper DeadlineNovember 25, 2019

Multimedia security and digital forensics is an active research area considering the ever-expanding areas including social media and IoT. Digital forensics has become a challenging one as we need more tools that are less pervasive and intervening on well established social platforms. In the last decade a large number of multimedia security and forensic techniques have been proposed. However, most of these solutions adopt very limiting and simplifying working conditions and inappropriate for real-world deployment. The Workshop on Multimedia Security and Digital Forensics (MSDF’19) will serve as a platform for researchers to share novel ideas, techniques and communicate with international peers.

Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review, are solicited. The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Authors should submit their papers online via EDAS. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Submission Instructions

Authors should submit their papers online. We use EDAS system for managing submissions and review process. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on. Detailed usage instruction on EDAS can be found here.

Submissions must be in Portable Document Format (.pdf). The list of authors should not be included in the paper manuscript PDF, in accordance to the double blind submission policy. Changes to the paper metadata on EDAS are permitted before the paper submission deadline.

All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of FIFTEEN (15 pages). However extra page charges will be applicable for papers exceeding 12 pages. Authors should pay special attention to unusual fonts, images, and figures that might create problems for reviewers.

SSCC'19 accepts regular and work-in-progress papers. Regular papers should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the conference. Short papers (Work-in-Progress) are an opportunity to present preliminary or interim results.

Double Blind Submissions

All submitted papers will be judged based on their originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. As an author, you are required to preserve the anonymity of your submission, while at the same time allowing the reader to fully grasp the context of related past work, including your own. Common sense and careful writing will go a long way towards preserving anonymity. Papers that do not conform with our double-blind submission policies will be rejected without review.

Minimally, please take the following steps when preparing your submission:

The organizers regard plagiarism as a serious professional misconduct. All submissions will be screened for plagiarism and when identified, the submissions by the same author will be rejected.

Submitted papers will undergo a peer review process, coordinated by the Program Committee. Each manuscript will be reviewed by a minimum of three reviewers. Acceptance of papers will be communicated to authors by email. The accepted regular and work-in-progress papers will be published in the conference proceedings. All accepted papers will be published by Springer in Communications in Computer and Information Science Series(CCIS), ISSN: 1865:0929. The proceedings will be available via the SpringerLink digital library.

To be published in the SSCC'19 Conference Proceedings, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full rate. Both regular and work-in-progress papers will be scheduled for oral presentation.
