>Security and Information Privacy.
>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 lorrie@acm.org. 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.
