  abstract =     "This work presents a loss less data hiding method
                 using integer wavelet transform and Genetic Programming
                 (GP) based intelligent coefficient selection scheme. By
                 exploiting information about the amplitude of the
                 wavelet coefficient and the type of the sub band, GP is
                 used to evolve a mathematical function in view of the
                 payload size and imperceptibility of the marked image.
                 The evolved mathematical function acts like a compact
                 but robust coefficient map for the reversible
                 watermarking approach. Information is embedded into the
                 least significant bit-plane of those high frequency
                 wavelet coefficients that are intelligently selected by
                 the Genetic Programming module. The proposed approach
                 does not only extract the hidden information, but also
                 recovers the original image content. Experimental
                 results demonstrate the effectiveness of this scheme in
                 terms of payload and imperceptibility.",
