CARDIS 2022, November 7 - 9, 2022, in-person event

21st Smart Card Research and Advanced Application Conference


CARDIS has been the venue for security experts from industry and academia to exchange on security of smart cards and related applications since 1994. Smart cards play an increasingly important role in our day-to-day live through their use in banking cards, SIM cards, electronic passports, and IoT (Internet of Things) devices. It is thus naturally of utmost importance to understand their security features and to develop sound protocols and countermeasures while keeping reasonable performances. In this respect, CARDIS aims to gather security experts from industry, academia, and standardization bodies to make steps forward in the field of embedded security.

The 21st edition of CARDIS is organized by the Centre for Cyber Security and Privacy of the University of Birmingham in Birmingham, UK. CARDIS 2022 will be accompanied by a one-day Fall School event, with more details to be announced.

We are aware that the Corona virus situation still leads to some uncertainties on travel and events. However, the organizers are committed to an in-person conference (with options for virtual attendance) and the value it brings to the community. The only exception that could lead to a cancellation of the physical meeting would be new governmental regulations that rules out an event of the size of CARDIS with up to 100 people, or travel restrictions that make it impossible for most attendees to join.


General Chair: David Oswald, University of Birmingham, UK
