Special Issue Information
Watermarking of multimedia products is essential for copyright protection, authentication, and so on. For several decades, watermarking schemes have been successfully developed, particularly for the digital and network environment, sometimes combined with cryptography schemes. There are more and more user cases where the watermarked image is printed on a physical support and read by a scanner or freehandedly with a smartphone camera. With this type of process, the watermark can be submitted to multiple strong attacks: digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital transformations, signal and geometric distortions as well as camera rotation and tilt angle distortion when using a smartphone. This makes the triple objective of robustness, capacity and imperceptibility very difficult to achieve.
Image watermarking research continues to progress using traditional signal and pattern recognition techniques, and more recently some solutions based on deep-learning technologies have emerged, with promising results.
This Special Issue is dedicated to recent developments and applications of image watermarking. It aims to address a large variety of data-hiding issues involving conceptual developments as well as dedicated applications. Proposals mixing cryptography, deep-learning approaches and, more generally, artificial intelligence techniques are welcome. The Special Issue will bring together researchers and practitioners from different research fields, including data hiding, signal processing and cryptography, who wish to make original research contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
