CHES covers new results on all aspects of the design and analysis of cryptographic hardware and software implementations. The workshop builds a bridge between the cryptographic research community and the crypto-graphic engineering community. With participants from industry, academia, and government organizations, the number of participants has grown to over 300 in recent years.
In addition to a track of high-quality presentations, CHES 2012 will oer invited talks, tutorials, a poster session, and a rump session. CHES 2012 especially encourages submissions on the following two subjects: design methods to build secure and efficient hardware or software and leakage resilient cryptography including new model denitions and analysis and the design of new cryptosystems. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least four Program Committee members. This year, authors will be invited to submit brief rebuttals of the reviews before the nal acceptances are made.
