The University of Surrey Department of Computing's Watermarking and Multimedia Security research group receives a boost to its work this month with a visit from Professor Yun Qing Shi of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, New Jersey Institute of Technology. The visit is being sponsored by the Royal Society, and will help enhance the awareness of digital watermarking research in the UK.
Professor Shi will be visiting the Department from 30 July through to 19 August. During his visit, he will provide three tutorials on 'Fragile and Semi-fragile Reversible Data Hiding', 'Steganography and Steganalysis', and 'Digital Forensics', each key areas in multimedia security that the Watermarking and Multimedia Security group at Surrey are actively engaged in researching.
Professor Shi is a leading researcher in the field of multimedia security, contributing in the region of 200 authored and co-authored papers in top ranking conferences and journals, 18 patents and 1 book. He is also a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
The Watermarking and Multimedia Security group was established early in 2006, combining expertise from coding theory and cryptography, formal methods, and image processing and data hiding. Led by Professor Anthony T S Ho, the group is currently investigating binary, halftone and video watermarking, and error control coding. Professor Ho won the IET Engineering in Innovation Award 2006 for Security, for research and commercialisation of digital watermarking, with DataMark Technologies.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
