Hardware and Architectural Support for Security and Privacy (HASP) 2022

October 1, 2022 -- co-located with MICRO 2022

Call for Papers

The workshop will be held in person together with MICRO 2022. There is currently no remote participation plan.

Due to limited physical space, the workshop is currently scheduled to be half-day, in the afternoon of Oct. 1.

Although much attention has been directed to the study of security at the system and application levels, security and privacy research focusing on hardware and architecture aspects is still a new frontier. In the era of cloud computing, smart devices, and novel nano-scale devices, practitioners and researchers have to address new challenges and requirements in order to meet the ever-changing landscape of security research and new demands from consumers, enterprises, governments, defense and other industries.

HASP is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry, to share practical implementations and experiences related to all aspects of hardware and architectural support for security and privacy, and to discuss future trends in research and applications. To that end, papers are solicited from the areas, including, but not limited to:

In addition to regular papers, authors can also submit short papers of at most 5 pages. The titles of the short papers should have Short Paper: as their prefix. The program committee may recommend that certain regular papers be accepted and presented at short papers, instead of the regular papers. If authors agree, they will have to shorten their paper and add the prefix to the title prior to publication.

In addition to regular research papers, authors are also invited to submit position papers or systemization-of-knowledge papers. Position papers should define new problems in hardware or architecture security and privacy topics. Titles of position papers should have Position Paper: as their prefix.

Systemization-of-Knowledge papers should concisely, but exhaustively, systematize and conceptualize existing knowledge (similar to SoK papers in S&P conferences, but focusing on hardware and architecture). Titles of Systemization-of-Knowledge papers should have SoK: as their prefix.

Finally, researchers wishing to share their ongoing work without publishing a paper should submit application for a Work-in-Progress presentation. To be considered, a short 3-page paper should be submitted, with WiP: as the prefix to the title. These papers will not be published in the proceedings, but the title and authors will be listed on the HASP web page as a public record of the presentation.

Submission Information

All submissions must be using the double-column ACM ICPS template. LaTeX template is preferred. Please use the ACM Standard template in the usual two-column format. The template can be found here.

The submissions should be anonymized for double-blind review.

Regular submissions and position papers must be at most 8 pages including the bibliography and appendices (these papers may be recommended for acceptance as short 5 page papers during the review process, but full-length papers should be initially submitted if authors want to be considered for a full-length paper publication). Authors can also directly submit a short paper of at most 5 pages including the bibliography and appendices. Work-in-Progress submissions must be at most 3 pages total (the submission is only for review, Work-in-Progress papers are not published). SoK papers should also be 8 pages, but exceptions can be made, please contact the organizers with any questions.

All accepted regular papers, short papers, position papers, and SoK papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library; Work-in-Progress papers are not included. The proceedings will be published through ACM ICPS and available through the ACM Digital Library.

Papers can be submitted on the EasyChair web page: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hasp2022.
