What time? 9:00 to 16:00 CEST 
Where? At the prestigious Royal Military Academy (RMA) in Brussels, Belgium (Rue Hobbema 8, 1000 Brussels, Belgium).

 

UNCOVER is a pioneering project that has been supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101021687. Over the course of our project, we have dedicated ourselves to advancing the field of media forensics, with a particular focus on the development and refinement of steganalyisis.

Our final event is not just a conference; it is a collaborative forum where law enforcement agencies, security experts, and researchers come together to share insights and discuss the future of media forensics.

The day-long event will feature panels and discussions led by esteemed members of the UNCOVER consortium and distinguished guests from related fields.

This is an opportunity for you to engage in meaningful dialogue, network with peers, and contribute to shaping the trajectory of media forensics research and practice.
