Welcome to SOUPS 2009!

Welcome to a new year and a new gathering of SOUPS, the Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security. This year, our fifth, we have relocated from the sunny hills of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to the sunny Google campus in Mountain View, California.

For the next three days you will have an opportunity to hear from people doing cutting edge research as well as from industry on their first hand experiences with usable privacy and security challenges. Our two tutorials for the day are both already underway: Designing and Evaluating Usable Security and Privacy Technology and Think Evil ™ and we will have more indepth reports on those soon, here.

If you are interested in posting to this blog, just click the Register link above, and your account will shortly be upgraded so you can post your notes & thoughts from SOUPS 2009. Tag your SOUPS photos with soups09 and we will pull those in (but remember no pictures anywhere inside any Google buildings) and finally our tweets are already streaming in, just use the #soups hashtag to engage in the SOUPS discussion on twitter.
