Patrick Bas’ home page


Patrick Bas received the Electrical Engineering degree from the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble, France, in 1997, and the Ph.D. degree in signal and image processing from Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble, France, in 2000.

From 1997 to 2000, he was a member of the "Laboratoire des Images et des Signaux" de Grenoble (LIS), France, where he worked on still image watermarking. During his postdoctoral activities, he was a member of the Communications and Remote Sensing Laboratory of the Faculty of Engineering at the Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium. From 2001 to 2009, he worked as a CNRS researcher at Gipsa-Lab, and since 2010, he works at LAGIS, Lille, France.

From 2005 to 2008, he was detached from Gipsa-Lab to work as a visiting researcher at the Computer and Information Science Laboratory in the Helsinki University of Technology, Finland.

His research interests include synchronization and security evaluation in watermarking, and steganalysis. From 2004 to 2008, he was co-coordinator of the virtual lab 1 on “watermarking and theory” within the Ecrypt European NoE. He has co-organized the 9th International Workshop on Information Hiding (IH07), the 2nd Edition of the Bows-2 contest on watermarking in 2007, and the first edition of the BOSS contest on steganalysis in 2010.

Since 2011 Patrick Bas is associate editor of Eurasip Journal on Information Security and from 2013 to 2016 Patrick Bas is associate editor of IEEE Transactions of Information Forensics and Security (IEEE TIFS). Patrick Bas is the current group leader of the team working on Signal and Images in the CRISTAL Lab.
