Call For Papers

The Workshop on the Economics of Information Security (WEIS) is the leading forum for interdisciplinary scholarship on information security and privacy, combining expertise from the fields of economics, social science, business, law, policy, and computer science. Prior workshops have explored the role of incentives between attackers and defenders of information systems, identified market failures surrounding Internet security, quantified risks of personal data disclosure, and assessed investments in cyber-defense. WEIS 2015 will build on past efforts using empirical and analytic tools not only to understand threats, but also to strengthen security and privacy through novel evaluations of available solutions.
We encourage economists, computer scientists, legal scholars, business school researchers, security and privacy specialists, as well as industry experts to submit their research and participate by attending the workshop.

Suggested topics include (but are not limited to) empirical and theoretical studies of:
• Optimal investment in information security
• Models and analysis of online crime
• Risk management and cyber-insurance
• Security standards and regulation
• Cyber-security and privacy policy
• Cyber-defense strategy and game theory
• Security and privacy models and metrics
• Economics of privacy and anonymity
• Behavioral security and privacy
• Vulnerability discovery, disclosure, and patching
• Incentives for information sharing and cooperation
• Incentives regarding pervasive monitoring threats

Manuscripts should represent significant and novel research contributions.
WEIS has no formal formatting guidelines. Previous contributors spanned
fields from economics and psychology to computer science and law, each
with different norms and expectations about manuscript length and formatting.

Selected papers will be invited for publication in a special issue of the
Journal of Cybersecurity, a new, interdisciplinary, open access journal
published by Oxford University Press.

Thanks to our sponsors, a number of student travel grants are also available.
