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.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
