16th International Workshop on Digital Forensics and Watermarking (IWDW2017)

August 23rd – 25th, 2017 in Magdeburg, Germany


The 16th International Workshop on Digital-forensics and Watermarking (IWDW 2017) is a premier forum for researchers and practitioners working on novel research, development and applications of digital watermarking and forensics techniques for multimedia security.

We invite submissions of high-quality original research papers. Each submitted paper will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. The proceedings of IWDW 2017 will be published as Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer.

Important Dates:
Paper Submissions: Extended to May 10th, 2017 (was originally: May 3rd, 2017)
Notification of Paper Acceptance: Extended to June 2nd, 2017 (was originally:
