HOST 2024 | IEEE International Symposium on Hardware Oriented Security and Trust

Call for Papers

The IEEE International Symposium on Hardware Oriented Security and Trust (HOST) - the premier event aiming to facilitate the rapid growth of hardware security research and development - is set to take place in May 2024 in Washington D.C. Attendees can look forward to a diverse range of technical sessions from original and novel contributions, informative tutorials, captivating exhibitions and hardware demonstrations, and exciting competitions, including the microelectronic security competition and PhD dissertation competition. HOST 2024 invites original contributions in all areas of overlap between hardware and security, including but not limited to the following:

  • Computer-aided Design (CAD) for Hardware Security Verification
    • e.g., automatic techniques and metrics for life cycle security management and detecting security vulnerabilities.
  • Hardware Security Primitives
    • e.g., PUFs, TRNGs, cryptography, post-quantum cryptography, odometers.
  • Hardware Attack and Defense
    • e.g., hardware Trojans, fault injection, side-channels, hardware reverse engineering, hardware obfuscation.
  • Architecture Security
    • e.g., architectural side-channels, trusted execution environment, FPGA and reconfigurable fabric security.
  • System security
    • e.g., machine learning security, SoC/IP security, CPS/IoT security, sensor network security, smart grid security, cloud security.
  • Emerging or Other Topics
    • e.g., privacy-enhancing architecture, cryptocurrency security, and other hardware/system security topics.

Paper Submission

HOST 2024 has two submission windows. Please submit your paper at The page limit for submitted papers is 10 pages (excluding references), in double column, IEEE format, with a minimum font size of 10 points. Paper templates are available at Only work that has not been previously published at the time of the submission will be considered. Duplicate submissions to concurrent conferences/journals are not permissible, and if encountered will be rejected and reported to IEEE. The paper selection will involve a double-blind review - the identity of authors must not be revealed, directly or indirectly, over the course of the entire process, with all references to the author(s)' own previous work being in the third person. Please avoid the use of “omitted for blind review” in the bibliography and make sure that the PDF metadata does not contain author information.

Conflict of Interest Declaration

Before the full paper submission deadline, please declare your conflicts of interest with the TPC members on EasyChair, using the “Declare conflict” link on the top right corner of your paper information page. Conflicts of interest for HOST 2024 include authors of the submission, family members, advisors/students, colleagues from the same institution, and co-authors/collaborators in the past 48 months.
