The Technical Committee on Information Forensics and Security (IFS-TC) of the IEEE Signal Processing Society is inviting proposals for the third offering of its flagship workshop (WIFS 2011), to be held in 2011. The proposal should target a minimum audience of 120-140 attendees.
Interested groups and individuals are strongly encouraged to approach the members of the IEEE IFS-TC WIFS subcommittee to openly discuss and improve their proposals. Eventually, submitted proposals will be evaluated by the entire IFS-TC by secret ballot. The proposals should be complete and detailed. A complete proposal will note the date and location of the meeting, a tentative venue, an organizing committee, a promotion plan (which may include plans for co-sponsorships by other IEEE Societies and Councils), a strategy for reviewing of submissions including key dates, a publication plan (which must include adoption of the proceedings in IEEE Xplore), and a provisional budget. The IEEE IFS-TC controls the technical content of the workshop and will require adherence to TC requirements with respect to technical content and the review process. Full details are given in the formal Call for Proposals
The Program Committee (PC) of WIFS will necessarily include all the members of the IFS-TC. It is recognized that relevant researchers, who are internationally renowned in their scientific community, may be recruited to be part of the PC of WIFS as a means to further raise the profile of excellence of the workshop and to attract additional submissions.
Full proposals must be sent by email no later than September 20th 2010 to the Chair of the IEEE IFS-TC WIFS sub-committee. The selected proposal will be announced in December 2010 during the social event of IEEE WIFS 2010 in Seattle, WA, USA.
