Title of Workshop: International Workshop on deep learning for forensics and cybersecurity applications (DLFCA 2021)  

Aim and Scope

Special workshop on deep learning for forensics and cybersecurity applications in ICSPN 2021 will provide a unique opportunity for the researchers working in multidisciplinary domain i.e computer science & engineering, electrical & electronics engineering, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Deep Learning (DL) for forensics and cybersecurity applications. Other researchers working in the area of image processing, multimedia security, machine intelligence scientists, engineers, educators, students and researchers from all over the world to exchange their scientific ideas, views and thoughts with fellow researchers and participants.  

This workshop will address some of the most relevant, state-of-the-art issues and topics involved in forensics and cybersecurity applications dealt with advanced technology. Papers are invited which exhibits the application of deep learning for forensics and cybersecurity applications but not limited to topics.  

Topics and keywords treated in the workshop for paper submission systems

  • Deep learning for Image/Video Forensics
  • Deep learning-based anti-forensics
  • Deep learning for multimedia security
  • Deep learning for cyber security applications (e.g., malicious web content identification, intrusion detection and privacy-preserving, vulnerability and exploitation Identification, and facial and/or biometric spoofing detection)
  • Security challenges associated with deep learning

Paper Submission Guidelines:

Authors are invited to submit papers to the workshop. Full papers must be submitted through the conference paper submission site (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icspn2021).
