Call for Papers:

Workshop on Hardware and Architectural Support for Security and Privacy

Final Submission Deadline
April 28, 2019

Workshop on Hardware and Architectural Support for Security and Privacy (HASP)
in conjunction with ISCA 2019
Phoenix, Arizona, USA
June 23, 2019

Submission Deadline: April 28, 2019 AOE (extended)
Notification of Acceptance: May 12, 2019
Camera-Ready Version: May 26, 2019

Although much attention has been directed to the study of security at the system and application levels, security and privacy research focusing on hardware and architecture aspects is still a new frontier. In the era of cloud computing, smart devices, and novel 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 consumers, enterprises, governments, defense and other industries.

HASP is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry, to share practical implementations and experiences related to all aspects of hardware and architectural support for security and privacy, and to discuss future trends in research and applications. To that end, papers are solicited from the areas, including, but not limited to:

– Secure hardware processor architectures and implementations
– Side-channel attacks, evaluations, and defenses
– Secure cache designs and evaluation, focusing on side-channels
– SGX, SEV and Trustzone based systems and security solutions
– Hardware-enhanced cloud security
– Hardware support for secure Internet-of-Things
– Smartphone hardware security
– Hardware fingerprinting and PUFs
– Hardware and architectural support for trust management
– Hardware trojan threat evaluation, detection, and prevention
– Attack resilient hardware and architectural design
– Cryptographic hardware design, implementation, and evaluation
– Security simulation, testing, validation and verification
– Analysis of real attacks and threat evaluation

In addition to regular research papers, authors are also invited to submit position papers or systemization-of-knowledge papers. Position papers should define new problems in hardware or architecture security and privacy topics. Titles of position papers should have Postition Paper: as their prefix.

Systemization-of-Knowledge papers should consicely, but exhaustively, systematize and conceptualize existing knowledge (similar to SoK papers in S&P conferences, but focusing on hardware and architecture). Titles of Systemization-of-Knowledge papers should have SoK: as their prefix.

Finally, researchers wishing to share their ongoing work without publishing a paper should submit application for a Work-in-Progress presentation. To be considered, a short 4-page paper should be submitted, with WiP: as the prefix to the title. These papers will not be published in the proceedings, but the title and authors will be listed on the HASP web page as a public record of the presentation.

Submissions must be written in English with at most 8 pages including the bibliography and appendices. Submissions must be in double-column ISCA 2019 format. All accepted full papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library; Work-in-Progress papers are not included. The proceedings will be published throuh ACM ICPS and available through the ACM Digital Library.

Papers can be submitted on the EasyChair web page:

Prof. Ruby Lee, Princeton University
Prof. Weidong Shi, University of Houston
Prof. Jakub Szefer, Yale University
