IMPORTANT DATES 
----------------
Papers due:    20 April 2014
Notification:  31 May 2014
Pre-proceeding: 6 July 2014
Final version: 27 July 2014 (after the workshop)

SCOPE 
---------------------
Today, security threats are hardly sheer technical. They are 
rather socio-technical threats and come from adversaries who 
combine social engineering practices with technical skills to 
circumvent the defenses of information systems. Socio-technical 
attacks often succeed by exploiting the users' ill-understanding 
of security mechanisms or loopholes in poorly designed user 
interfaces and unclear security policies. In securing systems 
against these threats, humans obviously cannot be treated as 
machines. 

Humans have peculiar decision making processes. But they actions 
and behavioural patterns, despite apparently irrational, are 
perfectly justifiable from a cognitive and a social perspective. 
Computer security hence appears to acquire more and more the 
facets of an interdisciplinary science with roots in both 
interpretive and positivist research traditions.

The workshop intends to foster an interdisciplinary discussion 
on how to model and analyse the socio-technical aspects 
of modern security systems and on how to protect such 
systems from socio-technical threats and attacks.

We welcome experts from all involved and interested communities, 
including but by no means limited to social and behavioral 
sciences, philosophy and psychology and computer science.
