ICHST 2020

2nd International Conference on Hardware Security and Trust

October 23-25, 2020丨Nanjing, China


Sponsored by School of Cyber Science and Engineering Southeast University, China


2020 2nd International Conference on Hardware Security and Trust (ICHST 2020) will be held in Nanjing, China during October 23-25, 2020, with sponsorship of School of Cyber Science and Engineering Southeast University, China, as the workshop of ICSIP 2020.

Rapid proliferation of computing and communication systems with increasing computational power and connectivity into every sphere of modern life has brought security to the forefront of system design, test, and validation processes. The emergence of new application spaces for these systems in the internet-of-things (IoT) regime is creating new attack surfaces as well as new requirements for secure and trusted system operation. Additionally, the design, manufacturing and the distribution of microchip, PCB, as well as other electronic components are becoming more sophisticated and globally distributed with a number of potential security vulnerabilities. Therefore, hardware plays an increasingly important and integral role in system security with many emerging system and application vulnerabilities and defense mechanisms relating to hardware.

2020 2nd International Conference on Hardware Security and Trust (ICHST 2020) is an annual symposium which aims to facilitate the rapid growth of hardware-based security research and development. It highlights new results in the area of hardware and system security. Relevant research topics include techniques, tools, design/test methods, architectures, circuits, and applications of secure hardware.

2020年第二届硬件安全与信任国际会议作为ICSIP2020会议的分会, 将于2020年10月23-25日在中国南京召开,由东南大学主办, 网络空间安全学院承办。会议旨在为与会者提供一个交流的平台,讨论硬件安全与信任领域的最新研究成果和未来的研究方向。同时,我们希望本次会议能够建立起国家间,学术界与产业界,政府和非政府间的联系,能鼓励交流和分享,以促进硬件安全与信任行业的发展。

Because of coronavirus, Southeast University has decided to postpone ICHST 2020. Proposed new dates are October 23-25, 2020. Sorry for the inconvenience may cause you. 由于疫情,并为了响应政府的号召,主办方东南大学将会议延期到10月23-25召开, 感谢您的理解.

With the development of the pandemic COVID19, it is not likely that international guest visits will be possible by the early of October 2020. ICHST 2020 Executive Committee will consider, that it proposed to take place at Nanjing in October 23-25, 2020 will be organized as an online event. The organizing committee will adjust according to the epidemic situation. Of course we will ensure the academic quality of the event and its publications. All necessary preparations have been started including the publication of all accepted and presented papers as it has been announced before. The timeline of the submission and review processes is still valid.

(因疫情的影响, 目前组委会收到作者反馈, 特别是国外的专家学者等受到出入境的限制, 参加现场会议的情况较为困难, 组委会将继续密切关注疫情的情况适时做出调整, 会议将可能按照线上会议方式举办, 但是会议文章的出版会按照计划完成, 不受会议形式的影响, 谢谢各位学者的支持与理解! )
