Cryptographic Hardware and Embedded Systems (CHES) is a conference for cryptography research, focusing on the implementation of cryptographic algorithm. The two general areas treated are the efficient and the secure implementation of algorithms. Related topics such as random number generators, physical unclonable function or special-purpose cryptanalytical machines are also commonly covered at the workshop. CHES is sponsored by the International Association for Cryptologic Research. It was first held in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1999 at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). It was founded by Çetin Kaya Koç and Christof Paar. CHES 2000 was also held at WPI; after that, the conference has been held at various locations worldwide. Since 2009, the location of CHES rotates between the three continents Europe, North America and Asia. The past locations were, in chronological order, Paris, San Francisco, Cologne, Boston, Edinburgh, Yokohama, Vienna, Washington, D.C., Lausanne, Santa Barbara, Nara, Leuven, Santa Barbara, Busan, Saint-Malo and again Santa Barbara. In the last few years, CHES had around 400 participants, making it one of the largest events in the academic cryptography community.
