SOUPS 2009 Wrap Up

July 20, 2009

The fifth Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS) took place July 15-17, 2009 at Google in Mountain View, California. Each year, the symposium brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and practitioners in human computer interaction, security, and privacy.

SOUPS stems from the work of Carnegie Mellon's Lorrie Cranor, associate professor of computer science and engineering and public policy, and Director of CyLab Usable Privacy and Security Laboratory (CUPS).

"I organized a workshop on usable privacy and security in 2004, and the people who attended were eager for more. I realized there was a growing community interested in this research area and a need for a high-quality peer-reviewed conference. So, I decided to start the Symposium On Usable Privacy and Security. The conference program includes technical paper presentations, workshops, a keynote speaker and a poster session," said Lorrie Cranor, in an interview for CyLab Chronicles.

A good overview of this year's conference is provided on both CyBlog and the CUPS blog. Check out the following topics:
