Dieser Call for Papers richtet sich an unsere Mitglieder aus Wissenschaft und Forschung. Für den Minitrack zu „Security and Privacy Aspects of Human-Computer-
Interactions“ bei der Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences ( werden bis zum 15.06.2019 noch Einreichungen angenommen. Im Folgenden finden Sie den Ausschreibungstext:

With increasing digitization, the security and privacy aspects of information are a nonnegotiable factor in information system design and operation. Especially the human factor of information systems is a pivotal role in information security and increasingly relevant in establishing user-privacy concepts. More often than not, their knowledge about security aspects and ways of user-manipulation tactics are the last line of defense against cyberattacks. However, studies show users are also seen as the weakest link in information security. Therefore, they are also the primary target of attackers.

In addition to the traditional forms of user-computer-interactions in the form of mousekeyboard- input-devices, new ways of system-interactions, e.g., physiological data from fitness-trackers, eye-tracking devices or even pupillary responses indicating cognitive-loadlevels, are increasingly feasible as everyday HCI-components. With the interest in data privacy increasing, are users aware of how valuable those personal input data is and how do they value data privacy measures?

We have identified two main aspects relevant to researchers within the domain of Software Technology:

  1. How to securely deal with input data (also focusing on privacy aspects)
  2. How this data can be utilized in order to increase secure behavior or to raise awareness among users (help the users to make better security-related decisions)

In this minitrack we seek papers that explore concepts, prototypes, and evaluations of how users interact with information systems and what implications these interactions have for information security and data privacy. Further, we welcome new and innovative ways of human-computer-interaction and security-related concepts currently examined in the field. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Security related devices
  • Physiological sensors
  • Human-Computer-Interaction
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Sensor analysis
  • Data visualization
  • Biometrics authentication
  • Security and privacy awareness
  • Usable security design
  • Privacy and security by design
  • User valuation of privacy
  • Validation of user data
