EuroUSEC 2018 : The 3rd European Workshop on Usable Security
Call For Papers
The European Workshop on Usable Security (EuroUSEC) is the European sister of the USEC workshop, serving as a European forum for research and discussion in the area of human factors in security and privacy. EuroUSEC 2018 will be co-located with the 3rd IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy (EuroS&P 2018) and it will be held in London, UK on April 23, 2018.
The European Workshop on Usable Security solicits previously unpublished work offering novel research contributions in any aspect of human-centered security and privacy. The aim of this workshop is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and practitioners in human computer interaction, security, and privacy as well as researchers and practitioners from other domains such as psychology, social science, and economics.
We are excited to welcome original work describing research or experience in all areas of usable privacy and security. We welcome a variety of research methods, including both qualitative and quantitative approaches. We explicitly welcome work on evaluating existing or experimental research methods.
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 new or existing security or privacy features
- security testing of new or existing usability features
- longitudinal studies of deployed security or privacy features
- studies of administrators or developers and support for security and privacy
- psychological, sociological and economic aspects of security and privacy
- the impact of organizational policy or procurement decisions
- methodology for usable security and privacy research
- lessons learned from the deployment and use of usable privacy and security features
- reports of replicating previously published studies and experiments
- reports of failed usable privacy/security studies or experiments, with the focus on the lessons learned from such experience
- this topic list is not exhaustive
We've observed that the most effective workshops are those that encourage discussion between delegates. Such formats have been used very effectively in recent events such as FSE/ESEC2017 and SHB17, and we're glad to be introducing a similar format for EuroUSEC.
For accepted papers, please arrange for at least one author to attend the workshop.
