The 13th International Workshop on Hardware and Architectural Support for Security and Privacy (HASP)
Co-located with MICRO 2024

Nov. 2, 2024
Austin, Texas, US

HASP 2024 CFP
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
  • Commercial TEE systems and security solutions
  • Hardware-enhanced cloud security
  • Security of emerging architectures, such as Quantum Computers
  • 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

Authors can submit the following types of papers:

  1. Regular Paper (8 Pages, including the bibliography and appendices)
    – Research Paper
    – SoK: Systemization-of-Knowledge papers should concisely, but exhaustively, systematize and conceptualize existing knowledge (similar to SoK papers in S&P conferences, but focusing on hardware and architecture). Papers should use “SoK Paper:” as their title prefix.
    – Position Paper: Position papers should define new problems in hardware or architecture security and privacy topics. Papers should use “Position Paper:” as their title prefix.
  2. Short Paper (4 Pages, including the bibliography and appendices)
    – Research Paper: Papers should use “Short Paper:” as their title prefix.
    – WiP: Papers should use “WiP:” as their title prefix. Work-in-Progress papers will not appear in the proceedings, but the title and authors will be listed on the HASP web page as a public record of the presentation.

Important Dates

  • Submission Deadline: Aug. 8, 2024 by end of day Anywhere on Earth (AoE)
