Call for Papers due to November, 1st 2008

Security and Usability (SECUSAB09)

Workshop in the context of The Forth International Conference on
Availability, Reliability and Security (AReS 2009),
March, 16th – March, 19th 2009, Fukuoka, Japan

Authors are invited to submit research and application papers having 6
pages following the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style:
two columns, single-spaced, including figures and references, using 10
fonts, and number each page.  The work must represent original,
previously unpublished work. Submitted papers will be carefully
evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and
clarity of exposition. Contact author must provide the following
information at the ARES web site: paper title, authors' names,
affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of the
author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five keywords (not key
sentences ;-). Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be
accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the
paper in the conference. Accepted papers will be given guidelines in
preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the
notification of acceptance.

Organized by

The central aim of this workshop is to make aware of usability and human
issues in the context of availability, reliability and security, because
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Usability Engineering (UE)
traditionally play a limited role in secure systems development,
especially in safe-critical areas including medicine, health care,
aviation etc.

However, there is increasing insight amongst engineers that security
problems can be solved only by addressing issues of usability and human
factors. Increasingly, well-publicized security breaches are attributed
to human errors that might have been prevented through more usable
software. The study of attention, motivation, learning, reasoning,
acceptance and end-user behavior addresses important issues for secure
but it is essential that these topics are integrated into engineering at
systemic level.

Topics should include, but are not limited to:

+ Usability and Security with attention to User Centred Design;
+ Error detection and recovery from errors;
+ Techniques for Identification and Authentification of end-users;
+ Usability, Privacy and Anonymity and models of trust;
+ Secure Systems and User Experience;
+ End-user motivation and incentives for secure behavior;
+ Human perception of security and cognitive information processing;
+ Individual and cultural differences; diverse end-users;
+ Information seeking and evaluation and mental models;
+ Usability and Security in judgment and decision support;
+ Learning, training, and experience of Security and Usability;
+ Organizational, group, and individual behavior with secure systems;
+ Risk perception, risk analysis, and risk communication
+ Security behavior study methodologies;
+ Social influences and persuasion;

The aim of this workshop is to further stimulate the awareness that we
need to design and develop secure systems that untrained people can
actually use - therefore we need to bring together experts from
Psychology, Pedagogy and Computer Science.
