CALL FOR PAPERS - IEEE SEED - Deadline Extended to June 11 

The IEEE International Symposium on Secure and Private Execution Environment Design (SEED) (https://seed-symposium.org) is a forum which brings together researchers from the computer architecture and computer security communities into one venue that focuses on the design of architectural and system primitives which provide secure and private execution environments for applications, containers, or virtual machines.

SEED primarily focuses on research topics spanning across the boundaries of computer architecture, systems, and security. Papers are solicited on a range of topics, including (but not limited to): 
	• Architecture, operating systems, and programming models and language for supporting secure and private execution
	• Novel Designs for secure and private execution environments for GPUs, accelerators, and FPGAs
	• Architectural support for new security primitives
	• Novel cryptographic hardware designs for secure and private execution
	• Models and analysis of performance-security trade-offs in the design of a secure execution environment
	• Evaluation of security  vulnerabilities in post-Moore’s Law technologies, e.g. persistent memory, quantum computing
	• Demonstration and mitigation of architectural side channels, covert channels and other security vulnerabilities
	• Metrics for measuring architecture-related security vulnerabilities
	• Compiler and code generation techniques for mitigating architecture-induced side and covert channels and other vulnerabilities

SEED will accept one of four types of papers: (1) regular papers of 11 pages, (2) SoK papers of 11 pages, (3) Seeds of SEED papers of 6 pages, or (4) WiP paper of 6 pages. The primary focus of the regular papers should be to describe new research ideas overlapping computer architecture/systems and security, supported by experimental implementation and evaluation of the proposed research ideas. Systemization of Knowledge (SoK) papers are also welcome and should be submitted as regular papers. The primary focus of "Seeds of SEED" should be to describe the promising designs, initial development, and preliminary evaluation of new ideas critical to the security of future architecture/systems. Contributions from industry, that bring awareness to a new security problem and/or lay vision for sound architecture/systems security principles, are especially encouraged for Seeds of SEED papers.  Additionally, we accept Work-in-Progress (WiP) papers that should describe novel secure systems designs supported by experiments. For papers accepted under WiP category, the authors will make a presentation and  include the title and a brief abstract on the conference website.
