Hello All,

Submission Deadline: *June 10, 2021*
Event Date: *August 08, 2021* - Virtual Event on Zoom

We are cordially inviting you to participate in the Who Are You?!
Adventures in Authentication Workshop (WAY)- collocated with SOUPS
Conference 2021.

*About the Workshop:*

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers,
practitioners, and industry to share experiences, concerns, and ideas about
known and new authentication techniques. We are interested in discussing
methods of evaluating the impact and usability of various authentication
techniques, and ideas about novel authentication techniques that are
secure, robust, and usable. WAY will also accept short reports from
industry and public entities on authentication.

Authentication, or the act of proving that someone is who they claim to be,
is a cornerstone of security. The importance of authentication continues to
grow as users must prove their identity to maintain a continuous presence
with a wide variety of computing devices and services.

The goal of this workshop is to explore these and related topics across a
broad range of contexts, including enterprise systems, personal systems,
and especially mobile and embedded systems (such as healthcare, smart home,
IoT, and wearable systems). This workshop provides an informal and
interdisciplinary setting at the intersection of security, psychological,
and behavioral science.

Workshop papers and presentations will be made available on the conference
web page but are considered non-archival. WAY fosters a supportive and
constructive environment for sharing ideas and giving feedback. We welcome
submissions about new and ongoing work, as well as completed projects.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   - Human factors and their impact on authentication systems
   - Surveys and comparisons of known authentication techniques
   - Novel metrics for authentication strength
   - Empirical evaluations of authentication techniques (including studies
   with negative results)
   - Lessons learned from failed studies of authentication systems
   - New authentication techniques that target emerging computing
   environments such as mobile and embedded systems
   - Existing authentication techniques applied in new environments or
   usage contexts
   - Novel approaches to the design and evaluation of authentication systems
   - Replications of previously published studies of authentication
   - Organizational policy, procurement decisions, and deployment aspects
   of authentication systems
   - Studies targeting specific user groups of authentication systems
   (including administrators and developers)

Submission Instructions

Submissions should be formatted using the SOUPS '21
<> submission
template (available for MS Word
 or LaTeX
and submitted as a PDF. Submissions *should be fully anonymized.*

Submissions should be made via the WAY 2021 HotCRP instance:
Full Papers

We are soliciting 4-5 page submissions (including references) on topics
relating to authentication. Accepted submissions will be posted to the WAY
workshop website ( We encourage participants to also make
their workshop presentations available on the website. These submissions
will not be considered "published" work, and as such, should not preclude
publication elsewhere.
Industry Reports

We are looking for contributions from industry or public entities in the
following form: a 1-2 pages report together with a slide deck for a
presentation of approx. 15 minutes. An example
<> can be found in
the paper archive. We do not want product pitches or slides from
marketing/sales representatives. All submissions will be reviewed, and authors
agree to revise their slides as needed.
