San Jose, California, USA

Call for Papers

IEEE International Symposium on Hardware Oriented Security and Trust
(HOST) – the premier event aiming to facilitate the rapid growth of
hardware security research and development – has opened the call for
contributions. The 16th annual HOST will be held May 1-4, 2023 in San
Jose, California, the capital of Silicon Valley. HOST 2023 invites
original contributions in all areas of overlap between hardware and
security, including but not limited to the following:

Hardware Security Primitives
        e.g., PUFs, TRNGs, cryptography, post-quantum cryptography, odometers.
Computer-aided Design (CAD) for Hardware Security Verification
        e.g., automatic techniques and metrics for life cycle security
        management and detecting security vulnerabilities.
Hardware Attack and Defense
        e.g., hardware Trojans, fault injection, side-channels,
        hardware reverse engineering, hardware obfuscation.
Architecture Security
        e.g., architectural side-channels, trusted execution
        environment, FPGA and reconfigurable fabric security.
System security
        e.g., machine learning security, SoC/IP security, CPS/IoT
        security, sensor network security, smart grid security, cloud
Emerging or Other Topics
        e.g., privacy-enhancing architecture, cryptocurrency security,
        and other hardware/system security topics.

HOST 2023 has two submission windows . Please submit your paper at The page limit is 10
pages (excluding references), in double column, IEEE format, with a
minimum font size of 10 points. Paper templates are available at Only work
that has not been previously published at the time of the submission
will be considered. Duplicate submissions to concurrent
conferences/journals are not permissible, and if encountered will be
rejected and reported to IEEE. The paper selection will involve a
double-blind review – the identity of authors must not be revealed,
directly or indirectly, over the course of the entire process, with
all references to the author(s)’ own previous work being in the third
person. Please avoid the use of “omitted for blind review” in the
bibliography and make sure that the PDF metadata does not contain
author information.
