We are now just one week away from the 2015 Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security in Ottawa, Canada. You have five days left for online registration (closes Monday July 20) and on-site registration will be available at the conference if you haven’t yet decided to join us.

We have published our full program of papers and posters, available online at http://cups.cs.cmu.edu/soups/2015/program.php <http://cups.cs.cmu.edu/soups/2015/program.php>. Details can also be found on three workshops and the tutorial which are taking place on Wednesday July 22, the first day of the conference.

The SOUPS dinner will be held at the Canadian Museum of History this year, The Canadian Museum of History welcomes over 1.2 million visitors each year to its celebrated complex in the heart of the National Capital Region, making it the country’s most-visited museum.

Thursday July 23 will be John Karat Day at SOUPS.
On Thursday, July 23, SOUPS will honor the memory of John Karat with a short tribute during our opening session. If you have a Hawaiian-style shirt, we ask that you wear it on July 23, as that is what John always wore when he attended SOUPS. John was one of the original SOUPS program committee members and a mentor to many in the SOUPS community. John retired as a Research Staff Member at the IBM TJ Watson Research Center in 2010. While at IBM, John conducted HCI research on a variety of topics including privacy, personalization, and information management. John was co-leader of theIBM Privacy Research Institute, established to advance the importance of privacy issues in IT globally. John passed away in June of pancreatic cancer.

There are still spaces remaining for lightning talks and demos at SOUPS! If you’re attending SOUPS and have a new research result or cool idea to present, please consider submitting a lightning talk or demo. Lightning talks are 5-minute talks on a variety of subjects relevant to usable security and privacy. Example topics might include emerging hot topics, preliminary research results, a research challenge that could benefit from feedback, a war story, ongoing research, a success, a failure, a future experiment, tips and tricks, a pitfall to avoid, etc. We are also seeking relevant demonstrations of visualizations, user interfaces, or interaction paradigms related to security and privacy for a demo session. Demo presentations will be 5-10 minutes long, and should convey the main idea of the interface and one or more scenarios or use cases. 

Lightning talk and demo submission details are available at: http://cups.cs.cmu.edu/soups/2015/cfp.php#lightning <http://cups.cs.cmu.edu/soups/2015/cfp.php#lightning>
