Call for Workshop Papers:

SOUPS Workshop on Privacy Indicators: Towards the Establishment of a Standard Set of Privacy Indicators
at the Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security | June 22 in Denver, CO

https://www.usenix.org/conference/soups2016/workshop-on-privacy-indicators <https://www.usenix.org/conference/soups2016/workshop-on-privacy-indicators>

Note: SOUPS 2016 will feature two half-day workshops on privacy indicators: this one focusing on the current state of privacy indicators, and another one focusing on the future of privacy indicators.


== Towards the Establishment of a Standard Set of Privacy Indicators ==

Conveying privacy information to users is challenging. Privacy policies are not easy to understand and frequently go unread.  In addition, policies may not address consumers’ needs or concerns. The literature shows that privacy icons have also fallen short. Yet, many users express privacy concerns and wish to understand the privacy attributes of applications, devices, and tools.

== Goals ==

This workshop aims to document the current state of privacy indicators. Privacy indicators are mechanisms that indicate how personal data is handled. Examples of common privacy indicators include written privacy policies, privacy seals, icons, notices, tones, strobe lights, scents, vibrations, or other perceptual means. We will collect information about indicators  currently in use and discuss what works and what does not, with the eventual goal of creating guidance and standards for the design of effective privacy indicators. 

Bring Us Your Papers, Your Ideas, and Your Privacy Indicators!

== Scope and Focus ==

The workshop seeks original submissions that fall under any of the following categories:
	• Short papers describing original research (ongoing or outcomes)

	• Literature reviews of any length (please indicate if the review is a work-in-progress or finished work)

	• Presentations documenting indicators currently in use.

Position papers not backed by research are discouraged.

Topics of potential interest include (but are not limited to):
	• Effectiveness of current privacy indicators

	• Weaknesses of current privacy indicators
	• Case studies of privacy indicators

	• Analyses comparing privacy indicators
	• Requirements for information privacy indicators should be provide to the end user
	• Descriptions of system implementations and prototypes of novel privacy indicator designs

	• Methods to evaluate the effectiveness of privacy indicators


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

== Submission Instructions ==

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. Literature reviews are not restricted in length. The paper should be self-contained without requiring the reader to read the appendices. Data sets should be accompanied by a pointer for accessing the data. Presentations may be in any format playable on Macintosh or Windows, including PDF, PPT, Web sites, or video. All submissions must be in PDF format and should not be blinded. Please email your submissions to: privacy-indicators-workshop1 at googlegroups.com <mailto:privacy-indicators-workshop1 at googlegroups.com>. Camera-ready versions of accepted submissions will be posted online and distributed to workshop attendees.

* Notification of workshop paper acceptance: Friday, May 27, 2016
