Symposium On Usable Privacy and Security
July 20-22, 2011
Pittsburgh, PA USA

The 2011 Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS) will bring
together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and practitioners
in human computer interaction, security, and privacy. The program will
feature technical papers, a poster session, panels and invited talks,
discussion sessions, and in-depth sessions (workshops and
tutorials). Detailed information about technical paper submissions
appears below.  For information about other submissions please see the
SOUPS web site


We invite authors to submit original papers describing research or
experience in all areas of usable privacy and security. Topics
include, but are not limited to:

      * innovative security or privacy functionality and design,
      * new applications of existing models or technology,
      * field studies of security or privacy technology,
      * usability evaluations of new or existing security or privacy features,
      * security testing of new or existing usability features,
      * longitudinal studies of deployed security or privacy features,
      * the impact of organizational policy or procurement decisions, and
      * lessons learned from the deployment and use of usable privacy
        and security features.

All submissions must relate to both usability and either security or
privacy. Papers on security or privacy applications that do not
address usability or human factors will not be considered.

Papers need to describe the purpose and goals of the work, cite
related work, show how the work effectively integrates usability and
security or privacy, and clearly indicate the innovative aspects of
the work or lessons learned as well as the contribution of the work to
the field.

Papers must use the SOUPS formatting template (available for MS Word
or LaTeX) and be up to 12 pages in length, excluding the bibliography
and any supplemental appendices. Authors have the option to attach to
their paper supplemental appendices containing study materials
(e.g. surveys) that would not otherwise fit within the body of the
paper. These appendices may be included to assist reviewers who may
have questions that fall outside the stated contribution of your
paper, on which your work is to be evaluated. Reviewers are not
required to read any appendices so your paper should be self contained
without them. Accepted papers will be published online with their
supplemental appendices included. Submissions must be no more than 20
pages including bibliography and appendices. For the body of your
paper, brevity is appreciated, as evidenced by the fact that many
papers in prior years have been well under this limit. All submissions
must be in PDF format and should not be blinded.

Submit your paper electronically at

Technical paper submissions will close at 5 PM, US Pacific time, Friday, March 11. This is a hard deadline! Authors will be
notified of technical paper acceptance by May 18, and camera-ready
final versions of technical papers are due June 15.

Accepted papers will appear in the ACM Digital Library as part of the
ACM International Conference Proceedings Series. Submitted papers must
not significantly overlap papers that have been published or that are
simultaneously submitted to a peer-reviewed venue or publication. Any
overlap between your submitted paper and other work either under
submission or previously published must be documented in a
clearly-marked explanatory note at the front of the paper. State
precisely how the two works differ in their goals, any use of shared
experiments or data sources, and the unique contributions. If the
other work is under submission elsewhere, the program committee may
ask to review that work to evaluate the overlap. Please note that
program committees frequently share information about papers under
review and reviewers usually work on multiple conferences
simultaneously. As technical reports are not peer reviewed they are
exempt from this rule. You may also release pre-prints of your
accepted work to the public at your discretion.

Authors are encouraged to review: Common Pitfalls in Writing about
Security and Privacy Human Subjects Experiments, and How to Avoid

New This Year: Borrowing heavily from the practices of top security
and HCI conferences, SOUPS is adding a second stage of reviewing in
which program committee members will be asked to provide additional
reviews on papers for which the first-stage reviews did not reach a
strong consensus. We are also introducing an in-person program
committee meeting at which all PC members will be present. The goal of
these changes is to ensure that all papers are evaluated to the same
standards and by the full program committee. Please direct any
questions or comments to the Technical Program Co-Chairs at
