The International Workshop on Information Forensics and Security (WIFS) is the major annual event organized by the IEEE Information Forensics and Security (IFS) Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. The aims of the event are to bring together researchers from relevant disciplines to discuss challenges, exchange new ideas and to share state-of-the-art results and technical expertise in the area of information security and forensics. The 15th edition of WIFS will take place in Nuremberg, Germany. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Applied Cryptography
  • Biometrics
  • Blockchain security and privacy
  • Communication and Physical Layer Security
  • Data Privacy and Anonymity
  • Deep Learning for Forensics
  • Hardware Security
  • Information Theoretic Security
  • Multimedia Forensics
  • Steganography, Steganalysis and Covert Communications

More details can be found in the Call for papers PDF. Note that the submission can be updated until July 20.

Paper submissions must follow the submission instructions.

Call for Special Sessions

The organizing committee invites proposals for Special Sessions on emerging topics in the area of Information Forensics and Security. Each session proposal should include an Abstract (at most one page) including a background and justification paragraph, which clarifies the motivation behind the special session, the collective quality and potential impact of the committed papers. Each proposal should also include a title, list of authors, and Abstracts of at least three committed papers. The papers should reflect geographic diversity.

Special session proposals will be evaluated based on the proposed topic, the expected impact, the expected quality of the contributed papers, and the session organizers and contributing authors. Selection of a special session proposal does not guarantee acceptance of the session and the committed papers. Papers submitted to special sessions will undergo rigorous review similar to that for regular submissions.

Please send your special session proposal until May 31st 2023 to
