CARDIS 2016 the 15th Smart Card Research and Advanced Application
Conference, Cannes, France, November 7-9, 2016. (Submission due July
15, 2016)

Call for papers

CARDIS has provided a forum for presenting exceptional research on
smart cards and related technologies since 1994. Smart cards play an
important role in our day-to-day lives, from bank cards to GSM SIMs,
and security is vital to keep these systems functioning correctly. The
CARDIS conferences gather researchers and technologists who focus on
all aspects of the design, development, deployment, evaluation and
application of smart cards and secure elements in secure platforms or
systems. The technology used in smart cards, and hence the attack
vectors, are expanding in to other areas, such as TPMs, HSMs, mobile
phones and the Internet of Things. It is more important than ever that
we understand how smart cards, and related systems, can be secured.

The fifteenth Smart Card Research and Advanced Application Conference
is organized by Eurecom and will be held in Cannes on the French
Riviera on November 7-9, 2016.


The program committee is seeking original papers on all aspects of the
security of smart cards and 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 of smart cards and related technologies. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

    Hardware architectures for secure embedded systems
    Physical attacks and countermeasures
    Efficient cryptographic implementations for smart cards and embedded systems
    True random number generators
    Smart cards and their applications
    Security of mobile devices and their applications
    Security of RFID/NFC systems and sensor nodes
    Security for access control, identification, mobile payment, transportation
    Security for the Internet of Things
    Identity, privacy and trust issues
    Trusted computing (mobile TPMs, TrustZone, Trusted Execution Environments,
    Software for secure embedded systems (operating systems, virtual machines,
    Anti-cloning and anti-counterfeiting technologies
    Hardware trojans implementation and detection
    Reverse engineering of secure embedded systems
    Evaluation and certification of secure embedded systems
