The fourth Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS) will be  
held July 23-25, 2008 at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.  
This symposium will bring together an interdisciplinary group of  
researchers and practitioners in human computer interaction, security,  
and privacy. The program features technical papers, workshops and  
tutorials, a poster session, panels and invited talks, and discussion  
SOUPS 2008 will begin with a Workshop on Usable IT Security Management  
(USM '08) and The Symposium on Accessible Privacy and Security.

During this three-day event, you'll have an opportunity to hear from  
people doing cutting edge research as well as from industry folks who  
will report on their first hand experiences with usable privacy and  
security challenges. The popular SOUPS poster session as well as  
social events, breaks, and discussion sessions will provide  
opportunities to share ideas and network with other participants.

The SOUPS 2008 invited talk will be given by Ross Anderson, one of the  
founders of a vigorously-growing new discipline: the economics of  
information security.
Continuing the tradition of interesting SOUPS social events, on  
Thursday evening SOUPS 2008 attendees will head to the Phipps  
Conservatory for dinner overlooking a lush tropical forest.

SOUPS 2008 will be held on the Carnegie Mellon University campus.  
Accommodations have been reserved for SOUPS attendees at the nearby  
Holiday Inn as well as in the university dorms.

SOUPS distinguishes itself from other conferences by both providing a  
high quality technical program and by bringing together an  
interdisciplinary group of attendees in a format conducive to informal  
discussion and networking. SOUPS offers reasonable registration fees,  
which include meals catered by local restaurants featuring a variety  
of cuisines. Past attendees have raved about "the amazing group of  
people who were here to talk with" and the "awesome food." One past  
attendee wrote: "Overall, this is the best conference I've attended. I  
may be ruined forever going to SIGCHI and other larger conferences."
