Since 1994, CARDIS has been the foremost international conference dedicated to smart card research and applications. Every second year leading researchers and practitioners meet to present new ideas and discuss recent - velopments in smart card technologies. Thefastevolutioninthe?eldofinformationsecurityrequiresadequatemeans for representing the user in human-machine interactions.
Smart cards, and by extension smart devices with their processing power and their direct association with the user, are considered the ?rst choice for this purpose. A wide range of areas including hardware design, operating systems, systems modelling, cr- tography, and distributed systems contribute to this fast-growing technology. The submissions to CARDIS were reviewed by at least three members of the ProgramCommittee, followedbyatwo-weekdiscussionphaseheldelectronically, wherecommittee memberscouldcomment onall papersand allreviews.Finally, 16 papers were selected for presentation at CARDIS.
