The Security and Human Behavior Conference (SHB) workshop is a two-day gathering of distinguished computer security researchers, psychologists, behavioral economists, sociologists, philosophers, and others -- all of whom are studying the human side of security (and privacy). The workshop's goal is to discuss, in an informal and interdisciplinary setting, issues at the intersection of security, psychology, and behavior.
There are no paper submissions. Participation in the workshop is only by invitation - and everybody who attends actually participates in the discussion. Invited scholars do not need to prepare a new manuscript for the workshop; they simply present their current (or favorite, or most representative) research, which - given the eclectic and engaging nature of the group - usually stimulates interesting discussion and novel ideas for projects. The last three editions attracted an exciting mix of economists, behavioral economists, psychologists, security engineers, and privacy scholars, and were considered by general agreement among the most fascinating new workshops in the field.
