IEEE International Symposium on Hardware Oriented Security and Trust (HOST) aims to facilitate the rapid growth of hardware-based security research and development. HOST highlights new results in hardware-based security. HOST will organize a single-track, multi-session, half day or one day long hardware security workshops to take place on the last day of the program. HOST 2019 invites original contributions for workshop sessions related to, but not limited to, the following:
HOST welcomes workshops that target a broad audience – for both beginners as well as professionals in the hardware security and trust field. Hence, workshops should include a mixture of both introductory and in-depth content. Any prerequisites required by the participants must be clearly specified in the proposal (see submission guidelines below).
Workshop proposals should be approximately 3 pages in length and must include the following sections: organizer information (name, affiliation, e-mail, etc.).
All proposals MUST be submitted to the HOST 2019 Workshop Track on EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=host2019.
The Workshop Selection Committee will evaluate each proposal using the following rubric. Each proposal is evaluated along lines of intellectual merit, proposers’ qualifications, expected outcome value to the research community, and foreseen impact to the semiconductor industry practices and processes. Proposals shall receive a rate on a scale from 1 to 100 (1 being the lowest possible rating and 100 being the highest possible rating) using the criterion below. Acceptance will be based on the highest scores, 92 being the threshold for acceptance. The Selection committee is planning to accept up to 3 workshops that fulfill the selection criteria as follows:
Accepted workshops must have a minimum of 30 registered participants by April 10, 2019 or the session will be cancelled.
Organizers are encouraged to participate in the promotion of the workshop.
To gain a better understanding of what to expect at HOST 2019 workshops, we share some statistics from the 2018 workshop edition. HOST 2018 featured two successful workshop events: Trusted and Assured MicroElectronics (TAME) forum; and Women In Hardware Security (WISE). Both workshops recorded over 100 attendees each, with a balanced mix of attendees from industry, government and academia.
