Keynote Address

From the Smart Card to the Smart Assistant
Vincent Cordonnier, LIFL

Since the first smart card prototype emerged, we have seen three generations of cards appear, each providing increasingly sophisticated and powerful features. Development of the next generation will be driven by a few demands:

  • The ability to take advantage of new hardware and software technologies
  • The flexibility to conform to changing environments
  • Provision of extended security
  • Complementarity with other mobile devices
  • Satisfaction of requirements from emerging markets
  • The capability of importing new concepts from any IT context

From an examination of these points it becomes obvious that smart cards will remain a useful technology for many mass applications, but they must increase their capacity to offer new services and facilities in a rapidly changing environment.

Work in Progress and Other Outrageous Opinions
Session Chair: Peter Honeyman, Vice-chair, IFIP WG 8.8 and Program Chair

Short, pithy, and fun, Work-in-Progress Reports introduce interesting new or ongoing work, and the USENIX audience provides valuable discussion and feedback.

If you have work you would like to share or a cool idea that's not quite ready for publication, send a one- or two-paragraph summary to We are particularly interested in presenting students' work. A schedule of presentations will be posted at the conference, and the speakers will be notified in advance. Work-in-Progress reports are five-minute presentations; the time limit will be strictly enforced.

View the current list of Work-in-Progress Reports

6:00 pm—7:30 pm   Conference Reception
8:00 pm—10:00 pm
RESET Meeting
Pieter Hartel, Chair, IFIP WG 8.8

The RESET project aims at elaborating a road map for smart card R&D that is relevant for the orientation of European Commission work programmes in the years 2003 to 2010. RESET will create a common view of the main areas for R&D required to address key security challenges corresponding to forthcoming information society needs through a collaboration of major stakeholders in industry (suppliers and users) and research in Europe. The specific purpose of the RESET meeting at CARDIS is to obtain views and feedback on the future of smart card R&D from an International audience. For further details, please visit
