Symposium On Usable Privacy and Security
July 18-20, 2007
Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA USA

The 2007 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.

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 2006 best paper award.

Papers may be up to 12 pages in length including bibliography,
appendices, and figures, using the ACM SIG proceedings template at (LaTeX users should
use template Option 2). 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
2006 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, March 2. Authors will be notified of
technical paper acceptance by April 20, and camera ready final
versions of technical papers are due May 25.
