COSADE 2022 has been rescheduled to April 11-12 in order to avoid an overlap with Real World Crypto.

The currently valid Covid-19 regulations of Belgium and KU Leuven permit a physical conference, thus we continue to prepare for that. Any updates will be posted here.

Please check the requirements to enter Belgium and ensure the compliance to them.

In accordance with Belgian regulations and KU Leuven policy, a Covid Safe Ticket will be required for accessing COSADE 2022 and checks will be enforced every day at the entrance. A Covid Safe Ticket proves that you are fully vaccinated, tested negative or recovered. Equivalent certificates from all EU member states should be compatible. A valid Covid Safe Ticket is also required to access restaurants, in particular the one of the social event. Face masks are mandatory recommended in all indoor areas of the university campus.

Last update: 8 March 2022

Side-channel analysis (SCA) and implementation attacks have become an important field of research and a real threat. In order to enhance the resistance of cryptographic and security critical implementations within the design phase, constructive attacks and analyzing techniques may serve as a quality metric to optimize the design and development process. Since 2010, COSADE provides an international platform for researchers, academics, and industry participants to present their work and their current research topics. The program committee is seeking original papers on all aspects of the side-channel analysis and other implementation attacks as well as efficient and secure implementations.

The thirteenth International Workshop on Constructive Side-Channel Analysis and Secure Design will be organized and held by COSIC, KU Leuven.

Submission topics of COSADE 2022 include, but are not limited to:
