12th Smart Card Research and Advanced Application Conference
November 27-29, 2013
CARDIS, first held in Lille, France in 1994, will turn 20 next year. Over these years, as smart cards have become a pervasive, foundational technology for bootstrapping trust in our society, CARDIS has become the foremost international academic conference dedicated to research on smart cards and their applications.
Smart cards are essential building blocks for many security critical applications and systems used in the payment, content protection, transportation, mobile and identification industries and are playing an increasing role in securing critical infrastructures. Established computer science disciplines such as hardware design, operating systems, system modeling, cryptography, verification and networking are adapting to support this ever evolving technology. Unlike events devoted to commercial and application aspects of smart cards, the CARDIS conference gathers researchers and technologists who focus on all aspects of smart cards development and deployment as well as applications of these security devices to secure platforms and systems.
The twelfth Smart Card Research and Advanced Application Conference is organized by the Chair for Security in Telecommunications (SecT), Technical University of Berlin and will be held in the Moevenpick Hotel, Berlin, Germany.
