-----------------------------------------

The Call for Papers for the 2007 USENIX/ACCURATE Electronic Voting
Technology Workshop is now available.

EVT '07 seeks to bring together researchers from a variety of
disciplines, ranging from computer science and human factors experts
through political scientists, legal experts, election administrators,
and voting equipment vendors. EVT seeks to publish original research on
important problems, including how the software and hardware in voting
might be engineered to be more robust against tampering or how it might
be written to be more easily and openly verified. Papers exploring
"end-to-end" approaches that strive to ensure that the integrity of the
election is independent of software and hardware are also encouraged.

EVT also welcomes submissions on how these systems might be engineered
to be more usable by the broad voting population. EVT also seeks
discussion of how election regulations and standards may evolve to
support better election technologies. Additionally, EVT encourages
position papers on the practicality (or impracticality) of the
technological advances in electronic voting, particularly with the
limited budgets available to many elections administrators. EVT will
consider papers covering the gamut of technology as it is used in
elections, ranging from voter registration and vote collection through
tabulation and post-election auditing. We are interested in both future
technologies and systems widely used today around the world.

In particular, we welcome papers considering:

* Design and analysis of electronic voting schemes and protocols

* Deployment and lifecycle concerns

* Mitigating threats (including insider threats)

* Usability and accessibility (both for voters and administrators)

* Legal issues, including how voting systems must comply with the ADA
and HAVA or the effect of intellectual property rights and nondisclosure
agreements on voting system testing, certification, and deployment

* The technology standards process and how it should evolve

EVT '07 will be a one-day event, Monday, August 6, 2007, co-located
with the 16th USENIX Security Symposium in Boston, MA. In
addition to paper presentations, we may have vibrant panel
discussions with substantial time devoted to questions and answers.

The submissions deadline is 11:59 p.m. PDT on Sunday, April 22, 2007.
Submissions guidelines can be found at http://www.usenix.org/evt07/cfpa 

We look forward to your submission.
