The IEEE International Workshop on Information Forensics and Security (WIFS) is the annual flagship workshop organized by the IEEE Information Forensics and Security (IFS) Technical Committee. Its major goal is to bring together researchers in the field to foster ideas exchange and to allow cross-fertilization among researchers working in the different areas of information security. WIFS will serve as a powerful instrument for community building.

The 7th edition of WIFS will be held in Rome, Italy, hosted by Roma Tre University, from November 16 to November 19, 2015. The conference will feature three keynote lectures, up to four tutorials, lectures and poster sessions, and also demo and ongoing work activities sessions. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Amonymization & Data Privacy
  • Cryptography for multimedia
  • Biometrics
  • Surveillance
  • Forensic Analysis
  • Hardware Security
  • Information Theoretic Security
  • Multimedia Hashing
  • Network Security
  • Adversarial Signal Processing
  • Communication and Physical-Layer Security
  • Steganography and covert communications
  • Usability and Human Factors
  • Watermarking and Data Hiding

Submission of papers

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length, six-page papers, including figures and references, to the WIFS Technical Program Committee. Papers will be accepted only by electronic submission through the conference website. The WIFS Technical Program Committee will select the best submitted papers to be presented at WIFS 2015. Accepted papers will be scheduled in lecture tracks or in poster sessions. Authors are expected to present their papers at the conference.


The IEEE Signal Processing Society enforces a “no-show” policy. Any accepted paper included in the final program is expected to have at least one author or qualified proxy attend and present the paper at the conference. Authors of the accepted papers included in the final program who do not attend the conference will be subscribed to a “no-show” list, compiled by the Society. The “no-show” papers will not be published by IEEE on IEEEXplore or other public access forums, but these papers will be distributed as part of the on-site electronic proceedings and the copyright of these papers will belong to the IEEE.

Submission of SPL and TIFS papers

Authors of IEEE Signal Processing Letters (SPL) and IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security (TIFS) papers will be given the opportunity to present their work at WIFS 2015, subject to space availability and approval by the WIFS Technical Program Chairs. Proposals have to be submitted to the Technical Program Chairs at [email protected].

Tutorial proposals
