Giulia Boato is Associate Professor at the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science (DISI) of the University of Trento (Italy). She is currently coordinating the Euregio project NOTIS “Humans in a digital era – New Opportunities and Threats for Information Security” and recently started a Joint Course on Multimedia Data Security with the University of Innsbruck. She participated into many EU projects (e.g. FP7 FET-IP LIVINGKNOWLEDGE, FP7 IP GLOCAL, FP7 CA ETERNALS, ICT-COST 3D-ConTourNet). She was co-chair of the International Workshop Living Web: making diversity a true asset within the International Semantic Web Conference 2009 and of the workshop on Event-based Media Integration and Processing co-located with ACM Multimedia conference 2013. She was Technical Program Chair of the ACM Workshop on Information Hiding and Multimedia Security 2018. She is reviewer for many international journals (e.g. IEEE TIFS, IEEE TSP, IEEE TMM, IEEE TIP, IEEE TCSVT). She was in the editorial board of the Elsevier Image and Vision Computing Special Issue on Event-based Media Processing and Analysis. She is associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, for the ELSEVIER Signal Processing: Image Communication, and for the Journal of Electronic Imaging. Her research interests are focused on image and signal processing, with particular attention to multimedia data protection, data hiding and digital forensics, but also intelligent multidimensional data management and analysis. She is author of 120 papers in international conferences and journals, with H-index 22 (Google Scholar). She is elected member of the IEEE Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee (MMSP TC), of the IEEE Information Forensics and Security Technical Committee (IFS TC) and of the EURASIP Special Area Teams (SAT) Biometrics, Data Forensics, and Security.
