OverviewAlthough a mature technology in many parts of the world, the smart card is still a little known computing platform in North America. This workshop, the first of its kind in the United States, will bring together researchers and practitioners in the development and deployment of smart card systems and technologies.
The USENIX Workshop on Smartcard Technology will be held in conjunction with the largest North American smart card conference, CardTech/SecureTech. This provides a unique opportunity for smart card researchers and product developers to learn about the state of the art from each other.
The program committee seeks papers describing application and system software that extends the reach of the use of smart cards in systems for authentication, electronic commerce, and secure personal data storage. Submissions across a broad range of smart card development phases are encouraged, from exploratory research and proof-of-concept studies to practical application and deployment of smart card technology.
TopicsOf particular interest to the program committee are the following topics:
Best Paper AwardsAwards will be given for the best paper and best student paper at the workshop.
What to SubmitThe program committee will review full papers or extended abstracts. An extended abstract should be 5 manuscript pages (single-sided) or fewer in length. It should represent the paper in "short form." Please include the abstract as it will appear in the final paper. If the full paper has been completed, it may be submitted instead of an extended abstract. Full papers should be limited to 12 single-spaced pages.
Include references to establish that you are familiar with related work, and, where appropriate, provide detailed performance data to establish that you have a working implementation and measurement tools.
The program committee requires that papers not be submitted simultaneously to another conference or publication and that submitted papers not be previously or subsequently published elsewhere. Papers accompanied by so-called "non-disclosure agreement" forms are not acceptable and will be returned to the author(s) unread. All submissions are held in the highest confidentiality prior to publication in the Proceedings, both as a matter of policy and in accord with the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976.
