The 13th Annual Workshop on the Economics of Information Security (WEIS 2014)
The Pennsylvania State University, State College, Pennsylvania, June 23-24, 2014

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 2014
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

Submissions: 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.

Travel Grants: Thanks to our generous sponsors, we expect to provide funding
for student travel to WEIS.
