Prof. Mehmet Celenk, Ohio University, USA
Mehmet Celenk received a Ph.D. degree from Stevens Institute of Technology in EECS in 1983, where he was the Robert Crook Stanley Graduate Fellow in 1985. He served on the Turkish Army in 1984-85 as a lieutenant and joined OU in 1985, where he is currently a Professor of the School of EECS. He has published 300 articles, received a $600,000 hypercube processor grant, participated in a $450,000 Tubitak Autonomous Vehicle Design and Development grant, and secured $120,000 in funds for visiting scholars’ R&D projects. He has directed 35 M.S./Ph.D. theses/dissertations in the School of EECS. He received the distinguished service award from the Signal School in Ankara in 1984 for his R&D work and launching the Communications Journal. He was the recipient of the 1988 Fritz & Dolores Russ Research Award of the Russ College of ENT of OU, and awarded the OU Avionics Academic Challenge Faculty Fellowship in 1988-92. He has been an active reviewer for numerous professional societies (e.g., IEEE, IEE, IET, SPIE, IS&T, IAPR), journals/transactions, publishers, and funding agencies (e.g., NSF, NYSTAR 2002-07). He has been an associate editor of the IEEE Trans. on SMCA (currently SMC: Systems) since 2005 and of the Electronic Letters of the IET since 2015, and the recipient of the Best Associate Award of the IEEE SMC Society in 2010. He has served on the editorial board of the J. Recent Patents on Signal Proc. since 2008, on the Editorial Board of J. of Biometrics and its Applications since 2014, and on TCM of numerous international conferences. He is a member of IEEE, Eta Kappa Nu, and former member of SPIE, IS&T, ACM, ASEE, OE. He was awarded Certificate of Appreciation by SPIE’s Electronic Imaging J. and Optical Engineering for his review services in 2012-13.
Prof. Yulin Wang, Wuhan University, China
Keynote Speech Topic: Image Authentication and Tamper Localization
Abstract: Image authentication can be used in many fields, including e-government, e-commerce, national security, news pictures, court evidence, medical image, engineering design, and so on. Since some content-preserving manipulations, such as JPEG compression, contrast enhancement, and brightness adjustment, are often acceptable—or even desired—in practical application, an authentication method needs to be able to distinguish them from malicious tampering, such as removal, addition, and modification of objects. Therefore, the traditional hash-based authentication is not suitable for the application. As for the semi-fragile watermarking technique, it meets the requirements of the above application at the expense of severely damaging image fidelity. In this talk, we propose a hybrid authentication technique based on what we call fragile hash value. The technique can blindly detect and localize malicious tampering, while maintaining reasonable tolerance to conventional content-preserving manipulations. The hash value is derived from the relative difference between each pair of the selected DCT coefficient in a central block and its counterpart which is estimated by the DC values of the center block and its adjacent blocks. In order to maintain the relative difference relationship when the image undergoes legitimate processing, we make a pre-compensation for the coefficients.
