Conference Call for Papers

Having been established in 1999, the Cryptographic Hardware and Embedded Systems (CHES) conference is the premier venue for research on both design and analysis of cryptographic hardware and software implementations. As an area conference of the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR), CHES bridges the cryptographic research and engineering communities, and attracts participants from academia, industry, government and beyond. CHES 2021 will take place in Beijing, China on September 12–15, 2021 (tentative). The conference website is accessible at

The scope of CHES is intentionally diverse, meaning we solicit submission of papers on topics including, but not limited to, the following:

Cryptographic implementations:
Hardware architectures
Cryptographic processors and co-processors
True and pseudorandom number generators
Physical unclonable functions (PUFs)
Efficient software implementations
Attacks against implementations, and countermeasures:
Side-channel attacks and countermeasures
Micro-architectural side-channel attacks
Fault attacks and countermeasures
Hardware tampering and tamper-resistance
White-box cryptography and code obfuscation
Hardware and software reverse engineering
Tools and methodologies:
Computer-aided cryptographic engineering
High-assurance crypto
Verification methods and tools for secure design
Domain-specific languages for cryptographic systems
Metrics for the security of embedded systems
Secure programming techniques
FPGA design security
Interactions between cryptographic theory and implementation issues:
New and emerging cryptographic algorithms and protocols targeting embedded devices
Special-purpose hardware for cryptanalysis
Leakage resilient cryptography
Cryptography and security for the Internet of Things (RFID, sensor networks, smart devices, smart meters, etc.)
Hardware IP protection and anti-counterfeiting
Reconfigurable hardware for cryptography
Smartcard processors, systems and applications
Security for cyberphysical systems (home automation, medical implants, industrial–control systems, etc.)
Automotive security
Secure storage devices (memories, disks, etc.)
Technologies and hardware for content protection
Trusted computing platforms
