Eleventh Smart Card Research and Advanced Application Conference – Cardis 2012

CARDIS 2012 – Call for Papers
—————————–
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
systems.

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

Authors are invited to submit papers (PDF or PS format) with novel
contributions electronically using the submission form available on
the following web site:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cardis2012.
Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, anonymous and not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. Accepted
papers should follow the LNCS default author instructions at
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.

=================================
The special track on Security and Privacy of the ESTEL Conference aims at providing a
forum for discussing security and privacy issues that need to be investigated for
providing advanced services, architectures, and technologies for space and satellite
applications.  In this context, it is of utmost importance to ensure proper protection to
such complex systems, or systems-of-systems, to ensure security, privacy, and availability
of the infrastructure as well as of resources and information it provides and
manages. These aspects concern both the specific satellite application and infrastructure
as well as the base stations and land data servers and communications that serve them,
touching then the different areas with ICT.  The problem is far from trivial, due to the
criticality and the social impact of the applications and services relying on this global
infrastructure, as well as the complexity given by the co-existence and co-operation of,
possibly heterogeneous, component systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have
been published or that have been simultaneously submitted to a journal
or a conference with proceedings. All submissions should be
appropriately anonymized (i.e., papers should not contain author names
or affiliations, or obvious citations). Submissions should be at most
16 pages, including the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and
should follow the LNCS style. Submissions are to be made to the
submission web site at easychair.org. Only pdf files will be
accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection
without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the
deadline of May 25, 2012 (11:59 p.m. American Samoa time).  Authors
of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented
at the workshop. Pre-proceedings will be made available at the
workshop. As for all previous EuroPKI events, it is planned to have
post-proceedings published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS) series.
