Call for Workshop Papers: "Will Drones Deliver My Privacy Policy? Workshop
on the Future of Privacy Indicators" at the Symposium On Usable Privacy and
Security -

== Call for Papers ==

It is known that users do not read privacy policies. Research suggests that
the existing model of notice and consent is based on false assumptions. The
methods for providing privacy notice to users that do not work on desktop
computers have been even more challenging when implemented on mobile
devices. Where do we go from here? This question might be simple to answer
if technology stopped evolving, but in many ways the future has already
arrived, with smart appliances, Internet of Things (IoT), assistive robots,
and, even drones. All of these artifacts may collect or sense personal
data. Therefore, all of these various devices ought to provide a way for
users to learn about their privacy policies and set personal preferences,
as well as give users the means to understand what privacy-sensitive
information theses different devices collect.

== Goals ==

This half-day workshop will provide an opportunity for those currently
engaged in researching privacy policies, notices, indicators, and other
related topics to think creatively about the next evolution of notice and
consent.  How do we provide privacy policies, notices, tools, and
indicators with non-traditional computing interfaces and devices such as
IoT, drones, assistive robots, self-driving cars, and others? Must we
radically rethink the way in which we ask for consent? Is it even possible
for users to truly consent to uses of their data that they may not even

== Submissions (not by drone, please) ==

Submissions can include ongoing or proposed research, position papers, and
creative assets (e.g., illustrations, animations, portfolios) as long as
they can be posted or linked to the workshop Web site. Successful
submissions will strike a balance between creativity and original thinking
while attempting to address the real-world concerns and goals of providing
end users with meaningful choice and consent.

Written submissions should use the SOUPS 2-column formatting template
(available for MS Word or LaTeX). Short Papers should be 2 to 6 pages in
length, excluding references and appendices. The submission should be
self-contained without requiring readers to read the appendices. Please
check with the committee before submitting material in a non-written
format. Submissions should not be blinded.

Email submissions to: soups16futurenoticesworkshop at gmail.com <mailto:soups16futurenoticesworkshop at gmail.com>.

== Selection and Presentation ==

Workshop papers will be selected by the workshop organizers and made
available on the USENIX website. Accepted workshop submissions will not be
considered peer-reviewed publications from the perspective of SOUPS and
would not preclude subsequent publication at another venue. Authors of
accepted submissions should be prepared to present their work at the
