The open nature of RISC-V and the associated community and eco-system have
arguably led to a "golden era" of research and innovation within the field of
computer architecture. This, in turn, has positively impacted the associated
area of hardware security, where significant existing challenges remain and new
challenges continue to emerge. RISC-V offers opportunities for academic and
industrial research and development that stem from the ISA's extensible,
configurable nature and the transparency afforded by access to high-quality HDL
as a CHES forum, TASER aims to
1) establish and solidify RISC-V as a topic of interest for CHES,
2) act as an interface between the RISC-V and CHES communities.
Organized as part of CHES, and held in-person as a half-day CHES forum, TASER
will include a mixture of invited and submitted presentations. As such, we
invite submission of presentation proposals on topics including, but not
limited to, any of the following:
scalar and vector instruction set extensions for PQC
where, for any topic, some aspect specific to RISC-V is clearly
identifiable. Note that there will be no formal proceedings in order to not
preclude submission of the same work to a journal or conference with
proceedings; this is not a call for (full) papers, so proposals for
presentations on 1) exploratory ideas or in-progress work, or 2) relevant
hardware or software artefacts, tools, or techniques, would be encouraged.
Instructions for Authors
Prepare the presentation proposal. There is no template or similar, but,
to simplify the review process, the proposal should be a 1-page PDF
document which includes a list of authors (including affiliations, and an
identified speaker), a title, an abstract
(For successful presentation proposals, the abstract would ideally be
reusable for the forum web-site; use of "HTML-friendly" content would
therefore be useful, although not a requirement per se.),
and a list of any references and/or associated resources.
before the deadline, 23/06/2023 23:59:59 Anywhere on Earth (AoE).
The organising committee will collectively review submitted proposals,
using two main criteria: 1) individual technical merit, and 2) overall
fit with constraints on and composition of the forum. We expect to notify
authors of the outcome by 14/07/2023.
