CHES is consistently high quality, and half the papers are on side channels, so you can just start reading from the current year and work backwards. If time is more limited, I'd suggest starting with and, more on the defense side,

We've seen again and again, for a wide range of cryptographic functions, that implementations without expensive countermeasures are broken at low cost by physical side channels beyond timing. There are many papers quantifying this. Unquantified security claims lack credibility.

Sure. I'm interested in the many papers quantifying this. Could you give pointers?

Um, two decades of CHES papers?

I have only been around crypto for a decade, and I haven't been around CHES much. I'd appreciate pointers to good surveys / seminal papers. This is not a rhetorical ask.
