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:
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 These papers will not be published in the proceedings, but the title and authors will be listed on the HASP web page as a public record of the presentation.
