The Call for Papers for the 2009 Electronic Voting Technology Workshop/
Workshop on Trustworthy Elections (EVT/WOTE '09) is now available.

This year, the organizers of the USENIX/ACCURATE Electronic Voting 
Technology Workshop (EVT) have merged EVT with the IAVoSS Workshop on 
Trustworthy Elections (WOTE) to create a joint two-day workshop 
(EVT/WOTE '09). EVT/WOTE seeks to bring together researchers from a 
variety of disciplines, ranging from computer science and human-computer 
interaction experts through political scientists, legal experts, 
election administrators, and voting equipment vendors.

EVT/WOTE seeks to publish original research on important problems in all
aspects of electronic voting.

Soliciting New Material:

In addition to the areas in which EVT has seen very strong submissions
in the past (below), we are especially interested in the following types
of contributions:

* Technical work from vendor engineers and developers
* Work involving research with or about accessibility
* Assessments, proposals, and policy prescriptions involving
  registration technologies (e-pollbooks, online registration)
* Papers based on direct experiences with recent elections, possibly 
  from election officials and their staff

Soliciting Standard Material:

In general, we welcome papers on voting topics including but not limited to:
* Voter registration and pre-voting processes
* Vote collection
* Vote tabulation
* Election auditing
* Design, implementation, and evaluation of new voting technologies andprotocols
* Scientific evaluations of existing voting technologies
* System testing methodologies
* Deployment and lifecycle issues
* Threat mitigation
* Usability
* Accessibility
* Legal issues, including the ADA, HAVA, intellectual property, and
nondisclosure agreements on voting system evaluations
* Issues with and evolution of voting technology standards
* Election integrity
* Ballot integrity
* Ballot secrecy
* Voter anonymity
* Voter authentication
* Receipts and coercion resistance
* Anonymous channels
* Secure bulletin boards
* Threat models
* Formal security analysis
* Electoral systems
* Case studies of electronic voting experiments
* Privacy, verifiability, and transparency in e-voting


The submission deadline for refereed papers is 11:59 p.m. PDT on
April 17, 2009. Paper submission guidelines can be found at
http://www.usenix.org/evtwote09/cfpa 


EVT/WOTE '09 will be a two-day event, Monday, August 10, and Tuesday,
August 11, 2009, co-located with the 18th USENIX Security Symposium in
Montreal, Canada.

Attendance at the workshop will be open to the public, although talks
