Call for Papers
CARDIS has been the venue for security experts from industry and academia to exchange on security of smart cards and related applications since 1994. Smart cards play an increasingly important role in our day-to-day life through their use in banking cards, SIM cards, electronic passports, and IoT (Internet of Things) devices. It is thus naturally of utmost importance to understand their security features and to develop sound protocols and countermeasures while keeping reasonable performances. In this respect, CARDIS aims to gather security experts from industry, academia, and standardization bodies to make steps forward in the field of embedded security.
The 18th edition of CARDIS is organized by Faculty of Information Technology of the Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic.
The program committee is seeking original papers on the design, development, deployment, evaluation, and application of smart cards and secure embedded systems. Submissions across a broad range of the development phases are encouraged, from exploratory research and proof-of-concept studies to practical applications and deployment.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Security and application of
- Smart cards: identification, access controls, pay TV
- IoT devices: automotive, medical, mobile payment, mobile connected devices
- Trusted computing: mobile TPM, Trusted Execution Environments
- Embedded systems: operating systems, memory, virtual machines
- Cryptographic implementations of
- Lightweight cryptographic algorithms
- Post-quantum cryptographic algorithms
- Random number generators, PUFs
- Attacks and countermeasures
- Side-channel (timing, power, cache) attacks and countermeasures
- Fault and combined attacks and countermeasures
- Reverse engineering, (anti-)cloning, (anti-)tempering, (anti-)counterfeiting
- Automated analysis
- Formal verification and secure design
- Deep learning analysis
Authors are invited to submit papers (PDF format) with novel contributions electronically using the submission form available on the following website: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cardis2019. Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, anonymous and not submitted to journals or other conferences/workshops that have proceedings. Submissions must be written in English and should be at most 15 pages in total. Papers not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration. All submissions will be blind-refereed.
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. The proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Both submissions and accepted papers must follow the LNCS default author instructions accessible on https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines.
