Workshop Date: August 9, 2020
Time: 10:00 am – 14:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time (New York, USA) (check your local time at https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html)
Successful submissions to this workshop will explicitly be informed by an understanding of how security information workers do their jobs, and the results will explicitly address how we understand security information workers.
We solicit papers describing new research contributions in this area as well as case studies, work in progress, preliminary results, novel ideas, and position papers. Papers should be at most six pages (excluding references) using the SOUPS template format (MS Word or LaTeX). Submissions may be made at https://wsiw2020.usenix.hotcrp.com.
A word about paper length. Papers should be succinct, but thorough in presenting the work. Typical papers will be 5-6 pages long (plus references) but papers can be shorter (e.g. 4-5 pages) if, for example, they present an novel idea with limited preliminary results or a position likely to drive a lively discussion. Shorter, more focused papers are encouraged and will be reviewed like any other paper. If you only need 2 or 4 pages (plus references) to clearly explain your work or idea, please submit a paper of that length. Reviewers will be instructed to assess the value of the talk to the workshop audience irrespective of the paper length; however, we stress again that the presentation should be sufficiently thorough for reviewers to make this evaluation.
Workshop papers will be made available to attendees prior to the workshop. Paper presentations will be approximately 10 minutes in length followed by 5 minutes of questions and answers. Presentations must be made in-person unless the SOUPS conference moves to a remote format.
The workshop will feature a keynote talk followed by paper presentations. Breakout sessions at the end of the day will provide an opportunity for smaller group interactive discussion about related topics of interest, which may include methods, challenges, and future directions in security information workers research.
The deadline for submissions is June 25 23:59 AoE (extended)
May 28 23:59 AoE (Anywhere on Earth). Note, due to the ever
evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is possible that this deadline will be delayed.
Regarding all COVID-19 related decisions, we will follow SOUPS’s lead (e.g., submission
deadlines, conference date, physical vs. virtual proceedings, etc.) and update our workshop
website as changes occur.
