7th Workshop on RFID Security (RFIDSec 2011)
Call for Papers
Submission Deadline : 5 March 2011

The RFIDSec workshop focuses on security and data-protection issues in
advanced contactless technologies like RFID. It stresses
implementation aspects imposed by resource constraints.


Important dates:
Submission Deadline : 5 March 2011
Notification : 22 April 2011
Tutorials / Workshop: 26-28 June 2011
Workshop venue: Amherst, MA, USA

Topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

* New applications for secure RFID systems
* Data protection and privacy-enhancing techniques for RFID
* Cryptographic protocols for RFID

    * Authentication protocols
    * Key distribution mechanisms
    * Scalability issues

* Integration of secure RFID systems

    * Middleware and security
    * (Public-key) Infrastructures
    * Case studies

* Data mining and other systemic approaches to RFID security
* Resource-efficient implementation of cryptography

    * Small-footprint hardware
    * Low-power architectures

* Attacks on RFID systems
* RFID security hardware e.g. RFID with PUF, RFID Trojans, ...

Workshop Proceedings:
Proceedings will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in
Computer Science and will be sent to the attendees after the
Attendees may request that their papers not appear in the proceedings.
Authors of accepted papers must complete the copyright assignment form
for their work to be published in the proceedings, and guarantee that
their paper will be presented at the conference.

Instruction for the Authors:
The submission must be anonymous with no author names, affiliations or
obvious references. The length of the submission must be at most 12
pages excluding references and appendices. The text should be in a
single column format, in at least 11-point fonts and have reasonable
margins. If the submission is accepted, the length of the final
version for Springer's LNCS will be at most 20 pages including
references and appendices. The submission should begin with a title, a
short abstract, and a list of keywords. The introduction should
summarize the contributions of the paper at the level understandable
for a non-expert reader. The reviewers are not required to read
appendices-the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions
not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of
their merits.

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the
authors has published in a journal or a conference/workshop with
proceedings, or has submitted/is planning to submit before the author
notification deadline to a journal or other conferences/workshops that
have proceedings. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other
conference or workshop that has proceedings.
It is encouraged that the submission be processed in LaTeX2e according
to the instructions listed on "Springer's web site. These
instructions are mandatory for the final papers. Submitted papers must
be in PDF format and should be submitted electronically. A detailed
description of the electronic submission procedure will be announced
at the conference homepage.
