Presented under the auspices of the Special Focus on Communication
Security and Information Privacy.


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.



 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 [EMAIL PROTECTED] Abstracts and position papers should be
 submitted in plain text, HTML, or PDF formats only. All submissions
 must be received by April 2, 2004 and authors will be notified by
 April 19, 2004 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.
