Date: Fri Feb 25 2011 - 07:28:00 GMT

Forwarded from: Lionel Garth Jones <lgj (at)>

The Call for Papers for the 6th USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in
Security is now available. Please submit all work by 11:59 p.m. EST
on May 5, 2011.

HotSec is renewing its focus by placing singular emphasis on new
security ideas and problems. Works reflecting incremental ideas or well
understood problems will not be accepted. Cross-discipline papers
identifying new security problems or exploring approaches not previously
applied to security will be given special consideration. All submissions
should propose new directions of research, advocate non-traditional
approaches, report on noteworthy experience in an emerging area, or
generate lively discussion around an important topic.

HotSec takes a broad view of security and privacy and encompasses
research on topics including but not limited to:
* Large-scale threats
* Network security
* Hardware security
* Software security
* Physical security
* Programming languages
* Applied cryptography
* Privacy
* Human-computer interaction
* Emerging computing environment
* Sociology
* Economics

Attendance will be limited to 35-50 participants, with preference given
to the authors of accepted position papers/presentations.

Submission guidelines and more information can be found at

HotSec '11 will take place Tuesday, August 9, 2011, in San Francisco,
CA. It is co-located with the 20th USENIX Security Symposium, which will
take place August 10-12, 2011.

We look forward to your submissions.
