CALL FOR PAPERS
===============================

Although much attention has been directed to the study of security at the system
and the application level, security and privacy research focusing on hardware and
architecture aspects remains a new frontier. In the era of cloud computing, 
pervasive intelligent systems, and nano-scale devices, practitioners 
and researchers have to address new challenges and requirements in order to meet
the ever-changing landscape of security research and new demands from the
consumers, enterprises, governments, and defense industry.

HASP is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners
from academia and industry, to share practical implementations/experiences
related to hardware/architectural support for security and privacy, secure cloud
computing, secure mobile devices, novel biometric devices, electronic warfare 
and counter measurements, hardware aspects of digital forensics, and to discuss 
future trends in research and applications. To that end, papers are solicited 
from the areas, including, but not limited to:

 - Micro architectural and/or system support for privacy protection in the context
   of embedded systems, sensor networks, mobile devices, and cloud computing
 - Hardware support for trust management
 - Hardware and architectural support for digital rights management
 - Hardware trojan threat evaluation, detection, and prevention
 - Smartcard security
 - Architectural and hardware techniques for supporting digital forensics
 - Biometric hardware and implementation
 - Electronic warfare and countermeasure techniques
 - Hardware side-channel exploits
 - Attack resilient hardware and architectural design
 - Hardware techniques for homeland security
 - Cryptographic hardware design, implementation, and evaluation
 - TPM security
 - Hardware backdoor and rootkits
 - Embedded system security 
 - FPGA security
 - Interaction between system and micro-architecture
 - Simulation, validation, and verification tools
 - Experiences with real systems
 - Analysis of real attacks and threat evaluation

All accepted and presented papers will be included in the IEEE Xplore and indexed 
in relevant databases (EI).

SUBMISSION
===============================
Papers reporting original research results pertaining to the above and related topics 
are solicited. Full paper manuscripts must be in English of up to 8 pages 
(using the IEEE two-column format). The online submission site is: easy chair. If web 
submission is not possible, please contact the program co-chairs for alternate 
arrangements.
