In the past two decades, the International Workshops on Digital Forensics and Watermarking (IWDW) have consistently gathered researchers from around the world. These workshops serve as a platform for addressing challenges, fostering idea exchange, and sharing the latest advancements and technical expertise in the fields of information hiding and digital forensics. Our researchers also pay close attention to the development of related fields and the security issues they bring forth, such as AI, smart cities, and industrial Internet. Following this tradition, the aim of IWDW 2023 is bring together researchers to discuss their most recent works. IWDW 2023 is held by Qilu University of Technology at Jinan, China, guided and sponsered by IWDW Steering Committee.
