CARDIS 2012: Eleventh Smart Card Research and Advanced Application Conference

Since 1994, CARDIS is the foremost international conference dedicated
to smart card research and applications. Smart cards and secure
elements are the basis for many secure systems and play a decisive
role in ID management. Established computer science areas like
hardware design, operating systems, system modeling, cryptography,
verification and networking got adapted to this fast growing
technology and investigate emerging issues resulting from it. Unlike
events devoted to commercial and application aspects of smart cards,
CARDIS conferences gather researchers and technologists who focus on
all aspects of the design, development, deployment, validation and
application of smart cards and secure elements in secure platforms or

The eleventh Smart Card Research and Advanced Application IFIP
Conference, organized by the Institute for Applied Information
Processing and Communications (IAIK), Graz University of Technology,
will be held in the Weitzer Hotel, Graz, Austria.
The program committee is seeking original papers on all aspects of
smart cards and secure elements. Submissions across a broad range of
the development phases are encouraged, from exploratory research and
proof-of-concept studies to practical applications and deployment of
smart cards and related technologies. Topics of interest include, but
are not limited to:

-       Software for secure embedded systems (operating systems, virtual
        machines, ... )
-	Hardware architectures for secure embedded systems
-	Security of RFID systems and sensor nodes
-	Security of mobile devices and applications
-	Efficient and secure implementations of cryptographic algorithms
-	Cryptographic protocols for embedded systems
-	Physical attacks and countermeasures
-	Secure applications for embedded systems
-	Embedded systems networking
-	Person representation in embedded systems
-	Formal modeling and formal proofs
-	Validation and certification of embedded systems and applications
-	Identity, privacy and trust issues
