Call for Papers

2nd Workshop on Ethics in Computer Security Research 2011

March 4, 2011
Bay Gardens Beach Resort, St. Lucia

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

Submissions are now open (Deadline: Oct 15, 2010)

Computer security often leads to discovering interesting new problems and
challenges. The challenge still remains to follow a path acceptable for
Institutional Review Boards at academic institutions, as well as
compatible with ethical guidelines for professional societies or
government institutions. However, no exact guidelines exist for computer
security research yet. This workshop will bring together computer security
researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and legal experts.

This workshop solicits submissions describing or suggesting ethical and
responsible conduct in computer security research. While we focus on
setting standards and sharing prior experiences and experiments in
computer security research, successful or not, we tap into research
behavior in network security, computer security, applied cryptography,
privacy, anonymity, and security economics.

This workshop will favor discussions among participants, in order to shape
the future of ethical standards in the field. It will be co-located with
the Fifteenth International Conference on Financial Cryptography and Data
Security 2011.
