Symposium On Usable Privacy and Security
July 15-17, 2009
Google, Mountain View, CA USA

The 2009 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 security or privacy features or security
        testing of usability features, and
     * lessons learned from deploying and using 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 completed to
date, 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. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap
papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted
to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Accepted papers will
appear in the ACM Digital Library as part of the ACM International
Conference Proceedings Series. The technical papers committee will
select an accepted paper to receive the SOUPS 2009 best paper award.

Papers may be up to 12 pages in length including bibliography,
appendices, and figures, using the SOUPS proceedings template on the
SOUPS web site. All submissions must be in PDF format and should not
be blinded. In addition, you must cut and paste an abstract of no more
than 300 words onto the submission form.

Submit your paper using the electronic submissions page for the SOUPS
2009 conference ( A
successful submission will display a web page confirming it, and a
confirmation email is sent to the corresponding author. Please make
sure you receive that confirmation email when you submit, and follow
the directions in that email if you require any follow up.

Technical paper submissions will close at midnight, US East Coast
time, the evening of Friday, February 27. This is a hard deadline!
Authors will be notified of technical paper acceptance by April 20,
and camera ready final versions of technical papers are due May 29.
