Hardwear Call For Papers Closed
hardwear.io is seeking innovative research on hardware security. If you have done interesting research on attacks or mitigation on any Hardware and want to showcase it to the security community, just submit your research paper. Please find all the relevant details for the submission below.
hardwear.io Security Conference is a platform for hardware and security community where researchers showcase and discuss their innovative research on attacking and defending hardware.
The objective of the conference revolves around four key concerns in hardware, firmware and related protocols i.e. backdoors, exploits, trust and attacks (BETA).
Training: 20th – 21st Sept 2016
Conference: 22nd – 23rd Sept 2016

- Integrated Circuits
- Internet of Things/Smart Devices
- Hardware crypto
- Embedded Systems
- Automobile, Aeroplane, train automation systems and hardware components
- Industrial Control Systems/SCADA Systems

New Research (40 mins – 1 hr) – is a deep knowledge technical track that includes new research, vulnerabilities, zero days or exploits. And by new we really mean new i.e. if your research or talk has been published/showcased (partially or wholly) before, it will fall under current research category even though there are enhancements/changes to the original research.
Current Research (40 mins – 1 hr) – Comprises of known security issues, new research presented/published elsewhere, case studies, twist to an existing research, vulnerability, exploit or research-in-progress.
Tool (30 mins – 1 hr) – Comprises of open source security tools, exploits, hardware etc. This is an excellent opportunity for the original authors to showcase their work to the world.
Email the paper to: [email protected]
The subject should be: CFP EU 2016 <Paper Title>
Talk Category (Mentioned above i.e. research/technical/tool)
Time required (including 5-10 mins of QA)
Country (and City) of residence
Organization and Designation
Have you presented or submitted this paper at any other conference(s) or magazine(s) or portals?
If yes, where? and how this submission is different from the previous ones. Note that new research talks already given elsewhere or are due to be given elsewhere prior to hardwear.io will be considered as current research category talks unless they consist of cutting edge and ground breaking technology, which is at the judgment of the review committee.
Are you releasing an open source hardware(or specification)?
(If yes, please include the design for review)
Are you releasing an exploit?
(If yes, please include the source and vulnerability details for review)
Are you releasing a new vulnerability/Zero-day?
(If yes, please send us the details, including reproduction procedure, for review)
Why do you think your paper is different/innovative and how does it qualify as new work/research(for new Research category only)?
Are there any live demonstrations (These earn you good points during review)?
(If Yes, how many? Also please explain each demo)
Brief Profile ( less than or equal to 500 Words)
Paper Abstract – Please provide detailed working or your research/work. The more details you provide the better it is for the reviewers. Please keep the abstract to the point. Please do not try to hide the technical details or say “I can’t disclose it till bla bla” as it does not help the reviewers in any way and may give your paper a low score because of insufficient information available in the abstract. Please make sure to add as much technical details as possible as short abstracts also tend to get low score due to insufficient information.
Your high resolution photo (attached)
Only the original authors should submit their research and any submission from a third party will be rejected. The Abstract should clearly mention the techniques and hacks in detail and merely mentioning that it works will not help in understanding the research to its full extent. Product/company marketing and pitches will be rejected. We request you not to submit any product specific talk.

Hardwear.io - Hardware Security Conference
In the age of automation, with billions of connected devices, hardware security plays a key role in enabling trust in the core technology and components of automation. There is a predominant need to create a platform for hardware security researchers and companies to brainstorm on breaking and securing hardware.
With that in mind, somewhere in the mid of 2014, amidst all the news and concerns surrounding trust and backdoors in hardware equipment, Hardwear was conceptualized to provide the IT and security community with a platform to discuss and solve issues pertaining to hardware security. The objective of the conference revolves around four key concerns in hardware, firmware and related protocols i.e. backdoors, exploits, trust and attacks (BETA).
Hardwear is owned and managed by the team behind nullcon – International Security Conference (http://nullcon.net). We started our journey of spreading knowledge in the information security industry with nullcon in 2010, which has now become one of the premier security events in Asia.
