USEC 2017

Event date: 2017-02-26
San Diego, California
Description:

One cannot have security and privacy without considering both the technical and human aspects thereof. If the user is not given due consideration in the development process, the system is likely to enable users to protect their privacy and security in the Internet.

Usable security and security is more complicated than traditional usability. This is because traditional usability principles cannot always be applied. For example, one of the cornerstones of usability is that people are given feedback on their actions, and are helped to recover from errors. In authentication, we obfuscate password entry (a usability fail) and we give people no assistance to recover from errors. Moreover, security is often not related to the actual functionality of the system, so people often see it as a bolt-on, and an annoying hurdle. These and other usability challenges of security are the focus of this workshop.

We invite submissions on all aspects of human factors including mental models, adoption, and usability in the context of security and privacy. USEC 2017 aims to bring together researchers already engaged in this interdisciplinary effort with other computer science researchers in areas such as visualization, artificial intelligence, machine learning and theoretical computer science as well as researchers from other domains such as economics, legal scientists, social scientists, and psychology. We particularly encourage collaborative research from authors in multiple disciplines.

Karen Renaud and Melanie Volkamer are chair of this event.
