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.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
