SOUPS 2005

July 6-8, 2005
Pittsburgh, PA

Symposium On Usable Privacy and Security


SOUPS 2005 will be held on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. Carnegie Mellon is located approximately 22 miles from the Pittsburgh International Airport.

A block of rooms has been reserved at the Holiday Inn Select - University Center, which is located about three-quarters of a mile from CMU. Register by June 14, 2005 for the conference rate of $105/night. Ask for the "SOUPS Conference" rate.

The hotel will provide a free shuttle to CMU. The shuttle leaves the hotel every 30 minutes from 7:30 am to 9 pm. The hotel charges $17/day for parking. Parking on campus is available in some metered spaces, however, due to construction in the East Campus Garage, it is quite limited. We recommend that you walk to campus, take advantage of the hotel shuttle, or park in the Carnegie Museum parking lot. If you plan to take the hotel shuttle, be aware that there may not be enough room for everyone on the 8:30 am shuttle, so consider taking the 8 am shuttle.

Most SOUPS events will take place in the Collaborative Innovation Center (CIC) at CMU. If you are travelling East on Forbes Ave., CIC is the first building on the right as you enter the CMU campus area. SOUPS lunches will be held in the Singleton Room in Roberts Hall. Since you will have to walk outside to get to lunch, we recommend that you bring an umbrella in case of rain.


SOUPS is sponsored by Carnegie Mellon CyLab.
