Workshop on Information Hiding

Portland, Oregon, USA

15 - 17 April 1998

Many researchers are interested in hiding information or in stopping other people doing this. Current research themes include copyright marking of digital objects, covert channels in computer systems, subliminal channels in cryptographic protocols, low-probability-of-intercept communications, broadcast encryption schemes, and various kinds of anonymity services ranging from steganography through location security to digital elections.

These closely linked areas of study were brought together in 1996 by a workshop on information hiding held at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge. This was felt to be very worthwhile by the research community, and it was decided to hold a second workshop in 1998.

This second international workshop on information hiding will be held in Portland, Oregon from the 15th to the 17th April 1998.

Instructions for authors:

Interested parties are invited to submit papers on research and practice which are related to these areas of interest. Submissions can be made electronically (latex or postscript; preferred format is latex using llncs.sty) or in paper form; in the latter case, send eight copies suitable for blind refereeing (the authors' names should be on a separate cover sheet and there should be no obvious references). Papers should not exceed fifteen pages in length.

Addresses for submission:

David Aucsmith, Intel Architecture Labs, 5200 N. E. Elam Young Parkway, Hillsboro, OR 97124-6497, USA


Paper submission: 			31st December 1997
Notification of acceptance:		28th February 1998
Camera-ready copy for preproceedings:	31st March 1998
Camera-ready copy for proceedings:	31st May 1998
The full proceedings will be published after the workshop by Springer Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series. The possibility that some papers may contain colour plates makes it impractical to prepare these proceedings beforehand, so only preproceedings will be available at the event.
