Call for Papers

(in PDF format)

The annual CHES workshop highlights new results in the design and analysis of cryptographic hardware and software implementations. CHES provides a valuable connection between the research and cryptographic engineering communities and attracts participants from industry, academia, and government organizations.

As well as a single track of high-quality presentations, CHES 2014 will offer invited talks, tutorials, a poster session, and a rump session. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least four Program Committee members. Authors will be invited to submit brief rebuttals of the reviews before the final acceptances are made.

Topics suitable for CHES 2014 include, but are not limited to

Cryptographic implementations
Attacks against implementations and countermeasures
Tools and methodologies
Interactions between cryptographic theory and implementation issues
