Workshop Announcement

This workshop and working group is intended to bring together security
and privacy experts with human-computer interaction experts to discuss
approaches to developing more usable privacy and security
software. The workshop sessions on July 7 and July 8 will include
invited talks and discussion. July 9 will feature a "working group" of
invited participants who will spend the day identifying important
problems, discussing some of the research issues raised during the
workshop in more depth, and brainstorming about approaches to future
research, collaboration, and more user-centered design of security and
privacy software.

Call for Participation

Participation in the workshop is open to anyone who registers (no
submission necessary). Participation in the working group on July 9 is
limited because of the emphasis on achieving a high degree of
interactivity and discussion.  Workshop participants who are
interested in participating in the working group session should send a
1-page abstract or position paper describing their work relevant to
this workshop to [log in to unmask] Abstracts and position papers should
be submitted in plain text, HTML, or PDF formats only. All submissions
must be received by April 2 and authors will be notified by April 19
as to whether they have been accepted to participate in the working
group. In addition, the authors of some submissions will be invited to
present 10-minute short talks about their work. Submissions may
describe ongoing or planned work related to the development of usable
interfaces for security or privacy software, or they may discuss
important research problems or propose a research agenda in this
area. Submissions are especially encouraged that identify security and
privacy areas in need of examination by HCI researchers, as well as
areas where HCI researchers would like assistance from security and
privacy researchers.
