HOST 2023 invites original contributions in all areas of overlap between hardware and security, including but not limited to the following:

Submission Guidelines

HOST 2023 has two submission windows. The page limit is 10 pages (excluding references), in double column, IEEE format. There is no limit on the length of the bibliography. Only work that has not been previously published at the time of the submission will be considered. Duplicate submissions to concurrent conferences/journals are not permissible, and if encountered will be rejected and reported to IEEE. The paper selection will involve a double-blind review – the identity of authors must not be revealed, directly or indirectly, over the course of the entire process, with all references to the author(s)’ own previous work or affiliations in the bibliographic citations being in the third person. Avoid the use of “omitted for blind review” in the bibliography section and make sure that the PDF metadata does not contain author information.

HOST 2023 also accepts proposals for tutorials and demos. More information will be disseminated in future calls. For detailed submission information, please visit the HOST website.
