We're putting the final touches on the program for SOUPS 2009 and still
have room for another discussion session or two. If you are interested  
leading a discussion session, please send a proposal ASAP. Details  

SOUPS will feature parallel, moderated breakout sessions (similar to
Birds of a feather sessions) in which symposium participants will
discuss a topic related to usable privacy and security. These sessions
may include a brief introduction to the topic by the moderator, but
otherwise will not include formal presentations. Discussion session
topics may include, but are not limited to, definitions or metrics,
design critiques, research agendas, or frameworks for collaborative
research. We seek proposals for discussion session topics. Proposals
must include a one paragraph statement of the topic to be discussed
and a one paragraph bio of each proposer that describes their
experience or interest in the topic. Optionally, proposers may submit
up to two pages of background material that can be distributed to
participants and posted on the SOUPS website. Authors of accepted
proposals will be expected to moderate their discussion session and
provide a brief report on their session for posting on the SOUPS web
site after the symposium.

Proposals for discussion sessions should be submitted via email to
sessions AT cups DOT cs DOT cmu DOT edu
