SOUPS 2006

July 12-14, 2006
Pittsburgh, PA

Symposium On Usable Privacy and Security

The second Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS) was held July 12-14, 2006 at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. This symposium brought together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and practitioners in human computer interaction, security, and privacy. The program featured technical papers, workshops and tutorials, a poster session, panels and invited talks, and discussion sessions.

The first formal gathering of researchers actively working in this interdisciplinary area took place at the CHI 2003 Workshop on Human-Computer Interaction and Security Systems. A larger Workshop on Usable Privacy and Security Software (WUPSS) was held at the DIMACS Center at Rutgers in July 2004. WUPSS participants expressed a desire for an event that would combine a refereed papers track with less formal research discussions. In July 2005 the first SOUPS conference took place in Pittsburgh, PA.
