Usable Security (USEC'07)

February 15-16, 2007
Lowlands, Scarborough, Trinidad/Tobago

A workshop co-located with
The Eleventh Conference on Financial Cryptography and Data Security  

Submissions Due Date EXTENDED: November 12, 2006, 11:59pm, PST

Some of the most challenging problems in designing and maintaining  
secure systems involve human factors. A great deal remains to be  
understood about users' capabilities and motivations to perform  
security tasks. Usability problems have been at the root of many  
widely reported security failures in high-stakes financial,  
commercial and voting applications.

USEC'07 seeks submissions of novel research from academia and  
industry on all theoretical and practical aspects of usable security  
in the context of finance and commerce. The workshop will bring  
together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and practitioners,  
allowing experts in human-computer interaction, cryptography, data  
security and public policy to explore emerging problems and solutions.

==    Submission Categories    ==

USEC'07 invites submissions in three categories: (1) research papers,  
(2) abstracts and demos, and (3) working sessions. For all accepted  
submissions, at least one author must attend the conference and  
present the work.

Research Papers

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have  
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a  
conference with proceedings. Research  paper submissions should be at  
most 12 pages, excluding bibliography and appendices (appendices may  
include usability study materials and data).

Accepted submissions will appear both in a pre-proceedings, available  
at the workshop, and in a formal proceedings. After receiving  
feedback from the workshop, authors will have the opportunity to  
revise their papers before submitting a camera-ready draft for the  
final proceedings.

Abstracts and Demos

Submissions in this category should consist of a short summary of  
work (1-3 pages in length) to be reviewed by the Program Committee,  
along with a short biography of the presenters. Accepted submissions  
will be presented at the conference, and a one-page abstract will be  
published in the conference proceedings. Where appropriate, software  
or hardware demonstrations are encouraged as part of the  
presentations in these sessions.

Working Sessions

We are soliciting topics for working sessions at the intersection of  
usability, security, finance and commerce. Working sessions will  
explore topics in depth with significant participation from audience  
members. Proposals for working sessions should include the proposed  
topic, format (e.g., panel of invited experts, moderated discussion  
session, design exercises), prospective participants, time required  
and a plan for engaging participation from audience members.
