RFIDsec 2015

Call for Papers

RFIDsec 2015 will be held from June 23 to June 24, 2015. It will be co-located with ACM WiSec 2015 in New York City, US.

The RFIDSec workshop is the premier international venue on the latest technological advances in security and privacy in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). The 11th edition of RFIDSec continues the effort to broaden the scope towards solutions for security and privacy in related constrained environments: Internet of Things, NFC devices, Wireless Tags, and more. RFIDSec 2015 will be co-located with WiSec 2015. Attendees from academia, industry and government can network with a broad range of international experts. The workshop will include both invited and contributed talks.

We invite researchers to submit their latest results in Security and Privacy for RFID as well as for associated technologies. Topics of interest include:

  • Implementations of cryptography and protocols with constrained resources in terms of energy, power, computation resources and memory footprint
  • Lightweight cryptography and cryptographic protocols
  • Efficient and secure processor architectures for constrained environments
  • Tamper and reverse-engineering resistant designs for constrained platforms
  • Side-channel and fault attacks as well as countermeasures
  • Novel implementations of cryptography to support privacy and untraceability
  • Cross-layer engineering of constrained secure implementations within secure systems
  • Novel technologies and applications such as NFC, IC anti-counterfeiting, and Internet of Things
  • Design issues related to scalability, large-scale deployment and management of secure tags

Paper Submission

Submitted papers should present novel contributions related to the topics listed above. They must be original, unpublished, anonymous and not submitted to another conference or journal for consideration of publication.
Papers must be written in English and they should not exceed 15 pages and be compliant with LNCS template. Appendices that go beyond the limit of 15 pages can be added. However, reviewers are not required to read the appendices and the papers should be intelligible without them. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
All submissions will be blind-refereed. Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts (PDF or PS format) by filling in the submission form available on the following web site here.

Paper Publication

Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. The proceedings will be published as a Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) volume.

Important Dates

  • Paper submission: February 24, 2015 February 17, 2015
  • Notification to authors: April 7, 2015
  • Camera-ready version: April 28, 2015
  • Workshop: June 22-23, 2015
