Scope and Focus
Many privacy and security solutions are designed for and evaluated with a narrow range of users (e.g., technology literate, physically capable, young), and the solutions make assumptions about the environment and the user interaction capabilities (e.g., keyboard, mouse, touch screen, audio, camera). However, these solutions (e.g., authentication,
We observe that the effects of situational impairments, when people are unable to perform a task due to environmental or other factors related to the current situation, overlap with groups who have generally been marginalized. Privacy and security techniques that benefit one group may very well assist the other group. The marginalized groups of people and those with situational impairments struggle with privacy and security technology. The result is a greater impact on their ability to focus on their primary tasks (web-based email, online banking, driving, surgery, etc.).
The goals of this workshop are as follows:
- To learn about the experiences and requirements of marginalized groups (e.g., people with various disability conditions, young people, elderly people, technology neophytes) and situational impairments (e.g., dark rooms, noisy locations, in motion or in vibrating environments, in stressful situations, when performing a task involving cognitive load).
- To share studies of privacy and security solutions to assist these groups.
- To explore and develop potential directions towards designing solutions for everyone, anytime and anywhere.
This workshop will be of interest to researchers and practitioners who are interested in building privacy and security solutions that are inclusive for people with disabilities and/or situational impairments.
Questions about the workshop, including submissions, should be sent to the organizers (see below).
