EUROUSEC 2021: The 2021 European Symposium on Usable Security 2021

October 11, 2021-October 12, 2021 in Virtual, Online

Call for Papers

We invite you to submit a paper and join us at EuroUSEC 2021, which will be held on October 11 & 12, 2021 online. EuroUSEC 2021 will be an independent event with proceedings published by ACM.

We are excited to welcome original work describing research, visions, or experiences in all areas of usable security and privacy. We welcome a variety of research methods, including both qualitative and quantitative approaches.

We accept both longer papers on mature/completed work in a research track, as well as shorter papers on work in progress or work that has yet to begin in a vision track. This decision to accept both types of submissions, which started with EuroUSEC 2019, aims to include researchers at all stages of their career and at all stages of their projects.

Topics include, but are not limited to: - innovative security or privacy functionality and design - accessible cyber privacy and security - 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 - methodologies 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

We have observed that the most effective events are those that encourage discussion between attendees. Each paper presentation will be followed by about 15 minutes of discussion to promote engagement and helpful feedback.

For accepted papers, at least one author must attend the event.
