Call for papers

Artificial intelligence is progressing ever faster with new applications and results that would not be possible only a few years ago. At the same time, hardware security is becoming increasingly important for embedded systems applications where the number of such applications keeps on growing. The connection between AI and hardware security is becoming more prominent. Today, there are numerous applications where AI has either an offensive or defensive role for HW security. AIHWS aims to position itself in the intersection of these topics and provide a space where ideas converge into exciting new approaches for HW security. This workshop will provide an environment for researchers from academic and industrial domains to discuss findings and on-going work on all aspects of hardware security and artificial intelligence including design, attacks, manufacturing, testing, validation, utilization.

Topics of the workshop

  • Side-channel attacks and countermeasures

  • Trustworthy manufacturing and testing of secure devices

  • Validation and evaluation methodologies for physical security

  • Reconfigurable devices for security

  • Hardware Trojans

  • Fault injection attacks

  • Physical Unclonable Function (PUFs)

Submission

We encourage researchers working on all aspects of AI and HW security to take the opportunity and use AIHWS to share their work and participate in discussions. The authors are invited to submit the papers using EasyChair submission system. The link for submission will be posted later.
Every accepted paper must have at least one author registered for the workshop. All submissions must follow the original LNCS format with a page limit of 18 pages, including references and possible appendices. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format. The post-proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series.
The best workshop paper award is selected from all workshops. Each workshop nominates a candidate paper, and the winning paper is selected among them.
