The theme of the special session Data Hiding and Multimedia Security which has been an important and very active research area, especially with the massive growth of digital data and communication technologies. Several security breaches and threats have put many challenges to investigators for distribution and communication of digital media. The aim of this special session is to provide an environment to foster interaction of researchers to exchange ideas about research trends and share their expertise in the theory and application of computational intelligence techniques to data hiding and multimedia security.

The special session invites papers on the following or related topics:
•             Watermarking and steganography
•             Targeted and blind steganalysis
•             Data embedding and detection audio, image and video
•             Multimedia forensics
•             Content authentication and integrity verification
•             Fraud/forgery detection
•             Theoretical aspects of information hiding and detection
•             Secure multimedia system designs
•             Security metrics for information hiding
•             New applications of information hiding
•             Pattern recognition and security for forensics traces
•             Content traces and copyright management

Short biographies of the organizers:

El-Sayed M. El-Alfy is currently working at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Saudi Arabia as Associate Professor & Intelligent Systems Research Group Coordinator. His research interests are pattern recognition and machine learning, computational intelligence and soft computing, data mining with applications in the areas of computer networks, document analysis, information retrieval, multimedia content security and forensics.  Dr. El-Alfy attended several international conferences and contributed in the organization of many world-class international conferences as program chair, track chair, tutorial committee member, program committee member, session chair, and reviewer. He is a senior member of IEEE, member of ACM, IEEE CIS and CS, APNNA, INSTICC, MRLAB, ACS; member of technical committees of ADPRL, CISTC, and Multimedia Computing. He is also an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems, associate editor, International Journal on Trust Management in Computing and Communications, associate editor of the International Journal of Network Protocols and Algorithms, editor of the Journal of Emerging Technologies in Web Intelligence (JETWI), editor of the International Journal of Advanced Science and Technology.

Dr. Mian M. Awais received his Ph.D. from Imperial College, University of London. Prior to joining LUMS, Dr. Awais conducted European Union research and development projects for a UK based SME. His Ph.D. work related to the development of on-line models for parametric estimation of solid fuel-fired industrial boilers. Dr. Awais has also conducted research work on a class of iterative methods pertinent to Krylov subspaces for optimization, such as the oblique projection and implicitly restarted model reduction methodologies. His present research interests include soft computing based knowledge management and engineering, behavior modeling in robotics, case based reasoning, and statistical learning.
