With the progress of digital multimedia (image, audio, and video) techniques and the popularity of transmitting digital multimedia over the Internet, protecting multimedia communication in a secure way, without obstructing access from authorized parties, has become a critical issue. In addition, techniques such as steganography have been used in attempts to enhance multimedia security. Steganography is the science of communicating secret information in a hidden manner, and it usually uses multimedia data as vehicles for secret communication, so that the multimedia data can be shared and distributed on the Internet.
The above has aroused the interest of researchers on how to propose and design new effective approaches for steganography and multimedia security. Many steganographic methods or other protecting technologies have been proposed on multimedia. Therefore, to achieve a desirable performance, it is required to specially design efficient and effective computing methods for steganography and multimedia security. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect papers that apply innovative computing methods for steganography and multimedia security. We solicit original research and survey papers addressing (but not limited to) the topics listed below:
- Computation methods in image/video steganography;
- Computation methods in image/video steganalysis;
- Computation methods in multimedia content protection;
- Computation methods in multimedia encryption and authentication;
- Computation methods in multimedia privacy and analysis;
- Computation methods in multimedia forensics;
- AI and intelligent multimedia computing.

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 papers will be 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. Mathematics 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 1600 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.
