It WAS our great pleasure to welcome you in Rennes France, for the 9th IEEE International Workshop on Information Forensics and Security (WIFS) 2017, from December 4, to December 7, 2017. The workshop took place at Inria Rennes.
WIFS is the primary annual event organised by the IEEE Information Forensics and Security (IFS) Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. Its major objective is to bring together researchers from relevant disciplines to exchange new ideas and the latest results and to discuss emerging challenges in different areas of information security.
WIFS 2017 featured keynote lectures, tutorials, technical sessions. Topics of interest broadly include (but are not limited to): Forensics Analysis, Biometrics, Secure Communication, Multimedia Security, Infirmation Theoretic Security, Cybersecurity, Hardware Security, Surveillance, Network Security, Applied Cryptography (See the Program of the week).
Because of numerous requests Because we are nice people, we have decided to postpone the deadline to Friday 23rd of June, midnight (Paris time)! Submit here.

Label GdR ISIS
This year edition has received the label “GdR ISIS“. This is a national French cluster around research in image and signal processing held by CNRS.
We begin here a series about things to do in Rennes during December? (just to motivate authors in their hard work before the deadline). The most well known event is “Les Transmusicales”, a.k.a. Les Trans in short. This is a music festival that lasts for 3 or 4 days. It…
Label pre-GdR Sécurité
This year edition has received the label “Pré-Gdr Sécurité Informatique du CNRS“. This is a future national French cluster around research in security held by CNRS.
We are thrilled to announce the second tutorial of WIFS 2017. Monday, December 4th is devoted to tutorials, and we manage to nail the focus on deep learning with this second tutorial entitled: Methods for Understanding Deep Neural Networks and their Predictions This tutorial will be given by Grégoire Montavon, associate…
