Welcome to IWDCF 2018

Digital forensics have gradually become a very active research area in the field of information security in the last two decades. In recent years, more and more subfields in digital forensics such as the network forensics, content forensics, source tracing, etc, were greatly developed. However, while the advance of digital technologies boosts the development of forensic techniques, it also helps criminals and law violators. Particularly, anti-forensic technologies are also widely studied nowadays. Therefore, a series of problems still exist in various areas including the mathematical modeling, computational intelligence, accuracy improvement, new method development, and performance evaluations, etc. The focus of this workshop is on calling up the research groups to remove the obstacles.

This workshop is organized by the Computer Forensics Expert Committee of Chinese Institute of Electronics and the International Journal of Digital Crime and Forensics (IJDCF), and jointly organized by the Institute of Information Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). Auckland University of Technology will hold the workshop of the year 2018. The topics cover but not limited to:

  • Computational approaches to digital crime preventions
  • Crime scene imaging
  • Cryptologic techniques and tools for crime investigation
  • Data carving and recovery
  • Digital evidence
  • Digital techniques for crime investigations
  • Identity theft and biometrics
  • Information warfare
  • Machine learning, data mining, and information retrieval for crime prevention and forensics
  • Policy, standards, protocols, accreditation, certification, and ethical issues related to digital crime and forensics
  • Malicious codes detection Network intrusion detection
  • Network attack investigation and forensics
  • Network attack source tracing
  • Small digital device forensics (cell phones, smartphone, PDAs, audio/video devices, cameras, flash drives, gaming devices, GPS devices, etc.)
  • Multimedia content forensics
  • Techniques for content tempering
  • Anti-forensic technology
  • Steganography and steganalysis
  • Network covert communication and detection
  • Analytical methodologies against terrorism
  • Watermarking for digital forensics
  • Digital rights Management
  • Intelligent surveillance
  • Post_quantum cryptography
  • Cryptonets

All the papers will be submitted and reviewed by at least three reviewers. The papers accepted by this workshop will be published in IEEE AVSS2018 Proceedings.
